Happy Father’s Day!
Ah, what a beautiful gift fatherhood is! There’s an old phrase that says that you don’t really know what it takes to be a dad until you actually become one. Surely no one has ever thought that being a dad is easy, but we bet no dad in the world must have ever expected it would be THIS hard.
But this weekend is YOUR weekend, dad! We have gathered some of the best tweets that describe what it’s really like to be a father, and they’ll make you want to call your dad straight away to say “sorry for the inconveniences!”
1. Still haven’t gotten him a gift? Sometimes a good night’s sleep is the best gift you can give to your dad.
I wear a clown mask to sleep just in case one of my kids has a nightmare and comes to sleep in our bed.

2. When they say parents are superhuman, do they mean it like this?
4-year-old: Where do parents come from?
Me: We were born, just like you.
4: Stop making stuff up.

3. Maybe that’s why they wanted us to stay babies forever…
My son can now reach the light switches so don't come over my house unless you're really into raves or want to have a seizure.

4. Do we still believe that “we don’t have favorites!” thing our dad told us?
My youngest is being tested for the gifted program at his elementary school and my other son thinks his toothbrush is haunted.

5. Dads truly have unique ways to make us behave.
I constantly google "how to put your kids up for adoption" so my kids can find it on my search history and know that I'm not messing around.

6. A father’s love beats all odds. Well, nearly all of them.
I'd walk through fire for my daughter. Well not FIRE, because it's dangerous. But a super humid room. But not too humid, because my hair.

7. Thank you for always believing in me, dad. I knew I could count on you.
watching the kids play hide and seek in the park and mine just hid behind a chain link fence
at least we don't have to save for college

8. They should learn about the real world while they’re young.
Just taught my kids about taxes by eating 38% of their ice cream.

9. After a while, dads will take “me time” however it comes…
I finally got some me time away from the kids. Two whole hours. It would’ve been longer but my legs went numb crouching behind the dryer.

10. Yeah sweetie, go on while daddy gets his beer, he’s listening…
Hang on guys, I think my toddler is getting to the good part of his four hour long story and I don't want to miss it

11. Kids are just so tech-savvy these days!
3-year-old: *holds the remote for 2.5 seconds*
Me: *spends hours trying to get Netflix to not be in French*

12. It’s funny because it’s true. Love you anyway, dad.
Love it on Christmas day when a label on a present says "from mum and dad" and you just know that dad has absolutely no idea what's inside
— Joe Iwanciw (@iwanciw) December 22, 2015
13. Lesson #1 from dad: DO. NOT. TOUCH.
doc: "your dad's been in a coma for 9 days, we're running out of ideas"
me: "let me try" [goes to adjust thermostat]
dad: [opens one eye]

14. 7 a.m. is never early enough.
A dad’s favorite part of vacation is acting like he’s better than everyone else because he woke up the earliest.

15. No matter how many times your best friend has come to your house, he never remembers.
Is your dad really your dad if he doesn’t say “who?” after talking about any of your friends even if he’s known them for literally 7 years??
