Parenting is hard. That’s something that everyone knows, whether they have children or not. But what if parents could make it easier on themselves with a little humor or ingenuity and practicality? That’s basically what dads do on a daily basis, because if you let the kids just become an object of stress, well, we all know that doesn’t usually work out too well. Here you’ll find a few ways dads made their lives a little more fun and took away some of the stressors that parenting brings. This is Father’s are Phenomenal.

12. Oh Man, Old Man
This young man seems to be experiencing either some Jack-like aging or an identity crisis, and we’re not sure which. There must have been some event where the child was asked to dress like an older person and was probably just going to wear the outfit, and then dad intervened. This father took things to the next level and entirely stepped up this boy’s old person look! Check out that cul-de-sac hair! And the grey tinting was done perfectly! Tie those things in with the outfit and the sweet mustache, and they’ve got gold! He looks like a little teacher that isn’t going to take anyone’s, uh, stuff!
11. This is a Win!
We’ve seen some fails and some wins thus far, and this one most definitely makes its way into the latter category. Just look at what this dad did for his little girl. She wanted a swing, and while there were probably better places he could have hung this, he gave her one by sacrificing his own body to do so. This had to hurt; there’s no doubt about it. He went above and beyond and let his baby girl swing from his own shoulders, so we’d say this is a pretty cool dad. He could have put on a shirt to avoid the super bad rope burn, though. Just saying.
What a brilliant idea this father had! With a few simple strips of paper, he totally transformed his kid into some crazy, sinister villain! Either that or this kid is an out there, totally disconnected painter or something. Either way, the simplicity of this is what makes it great! The baby’s look adds to the effect and makes this adorably scary! But can you imagine if this was your kids real, natural face? “Um, yes doctor—we think this one is defective; can we get a new one?” There does seem to be a little hint of Jack Black in here, right?
Who wouldn’t use their baby as a table if said baby wouldn’t let them put it down for long periods of time? Sometimes children just need to be held by their parents, but sometimes, those parents get hungry. Instead of attempting to do some awkward eating maneuver in order to ingest some daddy fuel, this dad just decided to use his baby’s flat little back as a table and solved his problem. This kid is out, and daddy saw his opportunity, so he took it. Good on you, pops. Being a dad doesn’t always have to be so hard! Now give us some of that dessert!
8. Danger Level = Dad
Well, this just looks like a good time to us, but if the police got their hands on this, these kids might not be hanging out with good old dad for just a little while. Maybe they’re sick, and mom told their father that they needed to stay in bed? You know kids; they don’t want to sit still for more than thirty seconds, let alone stay in bed all day, so dad decided to take them out on a fun little adventure… on their mattress… behind a four-wheeler. How fun for the kids though! That is, until one of them can’t hold on anymore, slips off of the mattress, and cartwheels into one of their neighbors’ mailboxes. Such are the risks!
Let’s talk about laziness for just a second; this seems to be the definition of a lazy father, but at the same time it’s also the definition of ingenuity and creativity, so we can’t really fault dad here. Not only did he find a way to entertain and push (or pull) his daughter on the swing, but he found a way to sit down and enjoy a nice beer simultaneously. This is what every dad strives to be and if only every situation could be handled in a way that would create happiness for all parties, fathering would be much easier and less stressful! You can tell this dad doesn’t like doing too much, though; we mean, look at the shape of that yard! Bust out the lawnmower, dad!
Now, this isn’t a fail in any way. What’s happening here is actually pure exhaustion, and we have to give this dad credit for doing what it takes to get his little girl to bed. There was probably a massive unseen struggle that happened in here before this picture was taken (like seriously, kids can take hours to get to bed), and this guy just crashed after the fact. Perhaps he was trying to make his way out of the room and heard his daughter stir, so instead of waking her by continuing movement, he just dropped and waited for her to be still. Sometimes, in moments like that, all control is lost, and your brain will just shut down; that is most likely what you see here. Way to go, dad.
