8. Just A Quick Snack
The nurturing nature of fathers. This dad was hungry for a piece of chocolate cake but he was torn between a delicious dessert and a sleeping baby. While a mom may have waited for their child to wake up, this dad turned them into a placeholder for their plate. “The only way my three-day-old daughter would fall asleep. After two hours of carrying her around I got hungry,” he wrote. Dad’s have their own unique way of parenting but sometimes it works out for everyone involved and then there is delicious cake involved.

However, the dad didn’t stop to think whether or not the plunger might leave a mark. he also didn’t consider that the suction might give way and send his son flying hard into the supermarket floor.

This dad was so desperate for a cold one that he attached several straws together in an attempt to drink his beverage while his baby was busy drinking from her own bottle. Also acceptable for this act would have been a twisty straw or someone else helping dad drink his beer. Of course, he could have just waited for his daughter to finish eating and then enjoyed his cold beer with a lot less outside of the box thinking.
