    "Nothing is worse than reading your kid a bedtime story and flipping to a page with a bunch of words."

    1. Dads deal with a lot, like trying — emphasis on trying — to protect their kids' mortal souls:

    Priest: What's inside you eventually comes out. 6-year-old: *whispering in my ear* He's talking about poop.

    2. Reading bedtime stories:

    4. Playing hide-n-seek:

    I played hide-n-seek with my daughters, but they never came to look for me. I gave up when my legs fell asleep from kneeling in a corner. "I FOUND YOU DADDY!" No you didn't, I quit.

    5. And explaining the world to them:

    Daughter: What does gays mean? Me: Well you know mum and dad love each other - two men can love each other the same way Her: So what's 'penetrating gays'? Me: Er... read me the whole sentence Her: "She stared at him with a penetrating gaze" Me: Oh

    6. But despite it all they don't always get respect:

    son: Where’s mom? I need her to sign my permission slip me: I can do it son: My teacher said it has to be an adult

    7. Sometimes their kids don't even appreciate their jobs:

    “Why are the butterflies sad?” 4-yr-old: “it’s because they know you are going to kill them for your work.” I am the curator of an insect collection.

    8. And yet dads forge onward, looking out for their kid's hygiene:

    14. And accepting the new normal after kids:

    *Car shopping* Sales person: What do you think of this one? Me: *Dumps all my kids' toys and some dry cereal in the backseat* It's perfect.

    15. Look, they're not perfect, and they don't always know the right thing to do:

    toddler *starts taking his clothes off in the middle of the cereal aisle* wife: Do something me *starts throwing dollar bills* wife: Do something else

    16. They make oopsies:

    Took my son to the zoo yesterday for the first time ever and I realized I hadn’t explained what a hippo was and he just kept asking to go back and see the tooth pig

    17. Sometimes they stay up too late:

    I have a sleeping disorder. It's called “This is the only time I get to myself."

    18. And that makes them even more tired the next day:

    21. But through it all they love their kids to pieces, and — bless them — will continue their dadly duties even after they're gone:
