Any mom's worst nightmare
Where did the idea of the bumbling dad come from? We used to be a society of Mr. Cleavers, and now we’re a bunch of Homer Simpsons. What’s with that? These days, it feels like dads are all about lame jokes. As my boss affectionately put it: To be a good dad, you need to commit yourself to becoming a total loser.
But is that always the case?
One dad knew he was going to be in the dog house when his young son got a hold of the electric razor and buzzed his head… the day before family pictures. He knew his wife was going to have a conniption, but then he took it a step further to fix things… and you can bet she wasn’t happy at all. But could he be up for dad of the year? We think so.
The Guilty Hello
You know from the first message that something is up.
Imagine being his wife, busy at work at the hospital, when you start to get these suspicious texts from your husband, who’s home alone with your young son. This is about to get good.
The First Picture
At first, I didn’t even notice anything was wrong here. The only reason you know something is up is because the wife immediately responds to a seemingly cute photo with an all-caps “ANSWER THE PHONE.” You know she’s not messing around.
Look closely at the kid’s hair; things start to look a little weird…
Just look at the scene of the crime: The little boy’s hair messily discarded around the electric razor. This is any parent’s worst nightmare, especially the day before they’re supposed to take a family portrait.
That’s when dad had his bright idea. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Right?
