18 Hilarious Times Fathers Had Absolutely No Idea How To Dad

Fathers get a pretty bad rap for their infamously bad “dad jokes.”

While their humor makes us cringe from embarrassment, their judgement when they’re just trying do their job…y’know, be dads, might actually be more amusing.

Take these photos as hilarious evidence that sometimes, fathers just don’t know how to dad.

1. He didn’t know that overalls aren’t meant to be worn topless.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

2. These totally match…

3. No, tights aren’t pants, despite what this father and tween girls will try to tell you.

4. Isn’t the point of onesies that you don’t need other clothing on top?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

5. The hair gel and no-shirt combo is too much. I can’t.

6. He was too busy filming to actually catch him.

7. I’m pretty sure that’s not how it goes.

8. “Wearing things backwards is all the rage”…is what this dad probably said.

9. Let’s hope he’s not in charge of talking about the birds and the bees.

10. Ready for swim class? Check.

11. This dad got confused and put both legs into one pant leg.

12. Dad tried to make her swimsuit more fashion forward. Dad failed.

13. When mom’s away dad will…use a zip tie to do a ponytail.

14. That hat? Yeah, those are shorts.

15. A for effort on that sun block application job.

16. Rompers are annoying when you have to go to the bathroom…or when dad tries to put them on.

17. “So you’re telling me the tie goes in the front?”

18. No…just…just no.

One thing I’ve learned? Dads definitely shouldn’t be allowed to put clothing on their kids…unless, of course, you’re looking for a good laugh.

This Little Girl Hasn’t Seen Her Mom Clearly Until This Very Heartwarming Moment

While I can’t remember the first time I saw my mother’s face, I imagine that it was a pretty beautiful moment. She is my light, the one who brought me into this world, and so much more.

Three-month-old Tilly has had a hard time seeing since she was born. So when her parents finally got her glasses, you can imagine just how happy she was to see her mother and father clearly for the first time.

Thankfully, we don’t have to picture it in our heads…her dad caught the heartwarming interaction on camera. Watch as her little face lights up when she sees her parents. Someone get me some tissues!

Want more? Watch as baby Leo sees his mom clearly…

I could watch these cuties all day. What an amazing difference a pair of glasses can make!

Dad Opens The Best Christmas Present Ever And Has The Cutest Reaction

My dad is always the last person left on my Christmas shopping list. He’s not particularly hard to shop for, but what could possibly be special enough for the man who’s given me everything?

There are always the standard presents, like ties and coffee mugs, but sometimes they just don’t cut it. Most dads have reached an age where they no longer care much about material items. What they really treasure is the precious time that they get to spend with their family.

The daughter in the video below hadn’t been able to spend Christmas with her dad in 25 years. One year when the big day rolled around, she did everything in her power to change that.

This is a gift he’ll never, ever forget.

If you have a far-away family member you’re missing this holiday season, be sure to share this video with them. Maybe they will wrap themselves up for a Christmas surprise!

He Explained What Snow Was To This Little Girl, And Her Reaction Is Hysterical

Even as toddlers, we learn so much about the intricacies of this planet. Gravity sucks, food is good, and things can disappear and reappear through the magic incantation of “peek-a-boo!”

But when one little girl was told by her dad that snow comes from the sky…well, it was just too absurd for her to handle! “Daddy is funny!” she said, disparaging her father as the Catholic Church once did Galileo. Even Mom seemed to find the notion daffy, and she quickly joined in on the giggling.

Now that I’m thinking about it, she might have a point. You’re telling me that clouds create billions of dandruff-like flakes out of ice, and each flake is completely unique? That sounds like a dumb idea, even for Dad!

This Dad And Son Are Each Other’s Superheroes, And They’re About To Become Yours

Dads can be their kids’ most important role models and superheroes.

The story of one dad, however, shows us that being his son’s superhero doesn’t require powers, but an enormous and inspiring heart. When Josh Marshall’s son, Gabe, was diagnosed with brain cancer, the family was devastated. Gabe had a successful surgery in June that left him with a large horseshoe-shaped scar, and he felt self-conscious when others saw him. That’s when Josh decided to do something amazing.

Josh found a tattoo artist and asked him to tattoo the shape of the scar on his head, too.

Now father and son match, and Gabe doesn’t feel as self-conscious when he’s out in public.

She Asked Her Dad To Babysit Her Doll, So He Took Things To Hilarious Extremes

Moms get all the credit when it comes to watching the kids, but dads are great babysitters, too!

Trent McCain, owner of McCain Trucking & Harvesting, unfortunately doesn’t get to spend much time at home because he wakes up every day at the crack of dawn and puts in long, long hours. That’s why his precious nine-year-old daughter Joselyn asked him to watch her baby doll for the day. She never wants him to be lonely! He didn’t want to let his favorite little lady down, so he took the job very seriously.

He didn’t think he’d be a grandpa so soon, but he fell into the role quite nicely.

The doll’s name is Abbie, and she decided to help her granddad load the trucks!

She’s a perfectionist, so she made sure to carefully inspect every load.

The two of them took some seriously cute selfies.

They even went fishing!

He tried to let her drive, but her feet didn’t reach the pedals.

Joselyn eventually returned from her busy day out, so she and Abbie hit the field with Dad to check on some wheat. And guess what.

She added two new members to the family: Brinley and Anna. Looks like this grandpa has busy times ahead!

Cheers to a great dad. If Joselyn ever decides to have a few real kiddos, they’ll clearly be in good hands when she needs a sitter!

A Handy Dad Shows Us How To Make A Simple Playhouse From Pallets — Awesome!

Getting your kids to go outside and play can be like pulling teeth.

Unless you have a sweet swing set, a cool pool, or some awesome outdoor toys, they’re more likely to want to stay indoors where there’s no dirt and plenty of snacks.

So how do you get them outdoors without physically locking them out for a few hours in the afternoon? (By the way, never do that!)

Well, one dad came up with a genius idea that involved just a few wooden pallets and two days of work. Get ready to be jealous of his parenting skills…

It’s great that he made this bare bones so that his kids can grow into it, decorate the house, and add to the space however they want.

What a fun, quick project! So, what are you waiting for? Time to start hoarding pallets!

A Paralyzed Man Surprised Everyone At His Daughter’s Wedding… And Stood Up.

Irving Caplan became paralyzed and permanently wheelchair-bound after a bicycle accident in 2012. He refused to let this huge hurdle stop him from standing in honor of his daughter’s wedding two years later. Caplan wasn’t able to walk his daughter down the aisle; instead, he rose to the occasion of toasting to his daughter’s happiness with help from a Rex Bionics robotic suit.

The suit is controlled a joystick, 29 microprocessors, and 10 high-speed actuators.

There were few dry eyes in the banquet hall by the time he finished his speech.

(via Daily Mirror.)

Caplan explained: “The speech would have been the same had I delivered it from the wheelchair, but standing up I got the right perspective on the world—the one I had seen for most of my life.”

This definitely made an emotional impact on his daughter. The amazing moment made her special day all the more memorable.

These Parents Got Matching Tattoos Of Their Daughter’s Birthmark So She Won’t Feel Different

Love really is more than skin deep. H/T Daily Mirror.

1. This is the Phillips family of Grimsby, England: Tanya, Adam, and their daughter, Honey-Rae.

2. Honey-Rae was born with a birthmark that covers a good portion of her body.

Tanya told the Daily Mirror: “It is bright red and it covers almost half of the right side of her body. It stretches from her toes to her lower back. It hasn’t faded with time. In fact some days, it looks darker than others.”

Knowing their child might be treated differently, the Phillips decided to take action to help their daughter not feel alone.

3. An incident at a grocery store is what initially prompted them to do something.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

“I was at checkout, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg. I was distraught. It was the first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears,” Tanya told the Daily Mail. People are cruel without even realizing.”

4. The couple already had leg tattoos, but to show solidarity with their daughter they decided to get tattoos that matched her birthmark.

“Most people might think it’s very extreme, but to us, it was the natural thing to do to ensure our daughter never felt different or alone in the world,” Tanya told the Daily Mirror. “We wanted her to feel special, that her birthmark was something to feel proud of and not embarrassed by.”

5. Adam got his tattoo this past Christmas, with Tanya following suit last week. She said the process was tough, but worth it.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

“It was incredibly painful, especially as I had a flower to cover some old star tattoos, but it was worth every second of the pain,” he told the Daily Mirror. “When the swelling went down, I showed Honey-Rae, and she gently touched it and smiled as she said ‘match,’ pointing to her own leg.”

6. The family stands by their descision, and believe they made the right choice for their daughter.

“She now constantly touches mine and Adam’s tattoos, then her own birthmark and giggles – I couldn’t be happier,” Tanya said.

This Father Took Photos Of All The Places His Little Boy Fell Asleep. And It’s Hilarious.

When reddit user Scevans09 posted a gallery of his son sleeping, I expected it to be boring. We’ve all seen kids sleeping. But I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen a kid fall asleep in this many awkward, crazy positions. His naps are basically an artform – and one I’m jealous of. I want to fall asleep literally anywhere.

Just like him:

Sitting up in a chair.

Laying awkwardly.

On the kitchen chairs.

In the car, thinking.

Under his brother.

Mostly on the bed.

In a Jean Claude Van Damme split.

In mid-lunch.

While playing.

On the wrong part of the couch.

On the other wrong part of the couch.

Still on the wrong part of the couch.

Getting his haircut.

Still playing.

While reading.

On hardwood floors.

Here.

There.

How?

While waiting on food.

Interesting.

This is just talent.

Nice arm position.

This is physically possible?

Stop showing off.

While tuning out his parents. It worked.

Classy.

In the dirty clothes because why not?

Sitting up. He’s still got it.

While getting ready to play.

Awwwww.

Awwwwwwwwww.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Okay, kid. You win at sleeping.

Before you jump to conclusions that this kid is narcoleptic or has some serious other issue, his dad said the following:

“He had problems sleeping at night for awhile and then finally got his tonsils and adenoids out and has slept so much better since. I think that is why he would just crash all the time during the day.”

So, he’s all better but thankfully we have 34 brilliant photos of his epic nap-taking abilities. Share them with others below.
