Parenting is like a rollercoaster of emotions. At one point, you’re excited and eager to raise your kids. After some time, you get tired and annoyed by your children’s quirky behavior. There will even come a point where you’ll feel like you need to hide just to get away from them.
Being a dad, however, isn’t completely a bad thing. It’s actually an exciting experience, particularly as you go through those emotions.
These 60 men and their Tweets show the funny side of being dads.
1. When someone asks your child’s name
As a parent, you’d never want to embarrass your kid. So if he says that he’s Thorin, son of Thrain, King Under the Mountain, you must act believable. Bow to the king right away.
2. The portion of meat in meatballs
If you take out 90%, you’ll get 10%. I think this girl knows her mathematics quite well. It’s too bad that she’s not as great on other subject.
3. The monster under the bed
Sometimes, you need to play along with your kids’ imagination. You can even take advantage of it, too. This is one good example of how you should do it.
4. Scary mom
Angry moms can be really scary. They are probably scarier than seeing a monster in the closet.
5. When your daughter is a dragon
Kids’ imagination is endless. Sometimes, they think they are princesses living in beautiful castles. At times, they think that they are dragons.
I guess this dad won’t be sharing his kid’s secret with anyone soon. It’s like admitting that he’s had poop on his face. Gross!
7. The light switches at home
Turning the lights on and off might seem like a fun activity for kids. However, for adults, it can be quite annoying. If you don’t end up with serious migraines, you might end up experiencing seizures.
8. Playing hide-and-seek
If this is the kid you’ll be playing hide-and-seek with all the time, I’m pretty sure you won’t have a hard time. Even from afar, you’ll be able to spot him! I wish this dad teaches him the right way to play hide-and-seek before he decides if he should save for college or not.
Dads are weird beings, particulary this one. Instead of cleaning his daughter’s forehead the normal way, he chose to lick the mustard away. It must have been a confusing thing for the nurse to see.
10. Cool kid
I guess this kid grew up in a household that enjoys Star Wars. However, I don’t think he knows exactly what the Death Star is. It’s not the kind of star you say your wishes to.
11. About movies
Living in a household full of little girls can mean spending night after night watching Disney princesses and fairy tales. As a dad, you don’t really have a lot of options. It’s either singing princesses or no movie at all.
12. Took too long
Installing the car seat isn’t as easy as it seems. Sometimes, it takes years for a dad to properly install one.
This one’s quite hilarious. Kids have are really skilled when it comes to the things they like. For the rest, they’ll have to rely on their parents. That includes how to eat food.
14. Turning on the oven
Dads don’t just mess up with their kids. Sometimes, they have a good time annoying moms, too.
15. Wet soup
Kids have this annoying habit of complaining just about anything. In the case of this kid, it’s the soup being too wet. I wonder where he was able to find a soup that’s not excessively wet.
16. Pork and chicken
There must be something about chicken that kids love so much. Even if it’s not really chicken, they’ll still eat it if you say it is.
17. Not messing around
It must be horrifying for the kids to see their dad’s search history. They would know better than to make him mad now.
Children don’t have the same personalities and talents. While some excel at school, others not so much.
19. Lesson for today
Kids can learn all sorts of things at school. For this 5-year-old kid, it’s bribery.
20. Not cute
I don’t think that statement is cute. It makes the idea of seeing a dead deer on the side of a road normal when it isn’t.
21. Taxes and ice cream
We have to teach kids about taxes at a young age. Use things that are valuable to them to make them interested in the lesson. You can start with their favorite ice cream.
22. The things you’ll do for you kid
As a father, you’d do everything for your child. As a celebrity father, there may be some limitations, like conditions that ruin the hair.
Parenting can really test out your patience. Sometimes, it pushes you to the point of hoping your kid’s actually adopted.
24. Negotiating with a kid
Do not provoke a child holding a permanent marker. The more you say “don’t”, the more he’s likely to pull off the cap and start writing on the wall.
25. Partying when you’re a dad
Things change when you become a dad and that includes partying. From bottles of beer, you’ll just be holding your kids’ hands on your way to parties.
Who likes celery? I would stop working in a heart beat if they use celery to pay me.
27. On constant replay
Disney movies aren’t cheap. This dad is just making sure they’ll get their money’s worth from the movie.
28. Effective alarm clock
Well, babies make an excellent alarm clocks. They’ll surely make you get out of bed as soon as you hear them cry and smell poop in the room.
29. When parents lie
As a parent, you wouldn’t want to hurt your kid’s feelings. It’s probably better to set aside your morals for a bit than to make your kid feel bad about something as innocent as a picture.
30. Learning bad words
School isn’t the only place children learn things. Sometimes, they learn things from home.
31. When your kid makes you feel old
Sometimes, we get so busy with life that we forget how old we’re actually getting. The only time we realize the truth is when today’s kids point out how we’re still using the slangs of yesterday.
32. The other kid
It’s funny how this dad is still proud of his son even though he’s acting weird in public. He wasn’t ashamed to point out that his son was the odd one.
33. When you still don’t know a lot of things
Being an adult and looking after yourself is hard. Raising a kid when you’re still trying to figure out the adult life is twice as hard.
34. On preparing lunch
It looks like kids aren’t the only ones excited for school. Dads can also feel the same way and the way they prepare lunch says a lot about it. Unfortunately, just like kids, that enthusiasm wanes after some time.
35. It’s a win.
Raising kids isn’t cheap. You have to buy diapers, milk, vitamins, clothes, and toys. However, considering that you won’t be able to go out as often as you used to, you’ll still be able to save money.
36. Dealing with nightmares
This is a good way of calming terrified kids. You just have to make sure that your kids aren’t afraid of clowns before trying this dad’s technique.
37. Having kids changes everything
Having kids is a great thing. However, once you start losing sleep and sense of peace at home, you’ll start longing for those days that there were just the two of you.
38. Locking away the candy drawer
Toddlers are naturally curious and they can figure out things quite easily. This dad has to step up his game. Otherwise, he’ll end up losing all the candies in the drawer.
39. What is sleep?
There’s no such thing as sleep when you’re a dad. Your kids have endless needs and they’re bound to bother you for each one.
40. Crying contest
I used to think that crying isn’t a good thing, particularly for kids. For this dad, however, it’s his way of figuring out what the kids actually want to eat. It’s pretty genius if you ask me.
