A lot of times when it comes to parenting, everyone feels bad for the mom. Yes, it’s a lot to carry around a child for nine months–nurturing them and giving birth to them. Sure, you do most of the “heavy lifting” in terms of breastfeeding/feeding, diaper changes, and other “things.” But, dads don’t have it so easy either. Being a dad is just as hard as being a mom–facts.
Baby finally nods off in my arms…. I go to lay her down: arms-to-crib delivery is not smooth *at all,* causing the baby to cry and the cycle to repeat. Such a rookie move. #DadLife

When I’m on a solo outing with my toddlers, one of my biggest fears is a lost shoe on my watch. #Dadlife #Parenting

If my Daniel Tiger themed tweets make you so mad that you want to roar. Just take a deep breath and count to 4.#Dadlife #Parenting pic.twitter.com/0LUoCL3z02

When I get an injury
What I tell people:
I hurt myself doing a bit of DIY around the house.
What I mean:
I fell over one of those foam rollers at soft play and then a toddler jumped on me.#parenting #dadlife

The best thing about parenting is that by the time you learn how a thing works, everything has changed

Today my 4 year old was so tired she could barely keep her eyes open. Then she slept for 86 seconds in the car and will now be up forever.

I wear a clown mask to sleep just in case one of my kids has a nightmare and comes to sleep in our bed.

You know you’re a parent when you have to remove the toy boat, 2 trains, the whole foam alphabet, and half a zoo from the bath before you can have a shower.
You know you’ve been a parent for a while when you just shower with all the crap.#parenting #dadlife

The best thing about trying to name a baby is realizing how many people you hate

Me: Can we leave? These things take forever
Wife: *harsh whisper* Shut your mouth. Watch our daughter open her presents

My 2-year-old is screaming at the top of her lungs in the next room.
Either she’s being murdered or someone asked her to share a toy.
Whatever. I’m not going in there.
