The burden of fatherhood.
(submitted by Alexandra)
As a father I have suffered the honor of being the subject of many a makeup sessions at the hands of my young daughter. They have even applied polish to my fingers and toes. As silly as they made me look and as funny as I felt, it makes me smile when they talk about it all these years later as a moment they cherish.
Precious memories of such a fleeting moment in time. Good daddy 🙂
Steve knew that one day his family would just walk all over him…
this kid look eerily like my little cousin Josh. I seriously thought it WAS him.
Some parents just let their kids walk all over them.
I don’t remember the Olsen twins having this haircut, though.
I also would put up with anything if it meant I´d get a duvet day!!
I think the little boy looks cute with the toenail polish. My son wanted his toes polished when he was 2, and I was doing my toes so I painted his toes. My husband had a fit when he got home and made me take the polish off!
….maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t see toenail polish anywhere. I see red where his toes are “gripping” his dad’s face, and white at the very nails which would occur from the slight reddening from the pressure of balancing and whatnot. *shrugs*
I hear ya!
It is a good thing that boy is potty trained!
Now THAT’S a beat-down!
Too funny. Love this picture, and I can totally sympathize. Been there, done that. 🙂
To the younger folk this is funny. To us parents, it’s just daily life.
Hilarious, and also doesn’t this little one remind you of Michelle on Full House when she was a baby?
It’s just priceless to first look at the kid’s face, thinking “ok, nothing so awkward here…” then scroll down, scroll down… then… Whaaaat!!!!!! XD
King of the castle, king of the castle!
“How did you sleep honey?”— “Like there was a heal in my eye.”
In your face, Dad. IN YOUR FACE!
Oh this is so true – nothing like being used as furntiure/climbing equipment/jungle gym by your kids
Is dad dead? Who could sleep through that?!?
Hop on Pop?
First thing that went through my head!
That man must have been tired. Love it.
This is a perfect example why I don’t have kids – I don’t think stuff like this is cute at all.
Perfect example of why I DO have kids. Looking back, life was utterly boring and meaningless without them… although, I did get more sleep. But its a trade I am willing to make. Having said that, I encourage people who don’t want to have kids to NOT have kids.
I do have kids, and while stuff like this is painful at the time, it is utterly hilarious to look back at later in time when I am surrounded by all my kids, and their kids, and so on and so on…I too agree, if you don’t want kids, then don’t have them, but come on, this picture is hilarious!
I don’t want or have kids either but I see the hilarity here! Who wouldn’t laugh at the poor sap with a kid stuck to his face? Well, besides you. haha
Same here, Kelly! I don’t want or have kids (VERY happy being a doting Auntie, though) and I find this picture hysterically funny. I’ve definitely been treated like a human jungle gym by my nephews and niece at times… the good thing is that it’s finite! I get to leave and go home to my nice quiet apartment when we’re done playing. 🙂
Who’s a grumpy gus, then?
Face it, this is awesome…not awkward…just awesome!
Oh, he’s facing it all right.
…ohh, i love this.
it reminds me of a lot of things… …i was the kid.
who didn´t do that to his/her father…
…if you didn´t, than try today. gonna be fun.
I don’t know if my dad would want a 130# body on his face! Funny imagery though!
I liked to put my Dad in a head lock. My favourite thing to do was run and jump on his belly when he was sleeping! HAHAHA
Another reason why I will never be a father.
If it was THAT bad, do you think he would still be sleeping? lol
Looks like Jr. just won this round of King of the Hill.
I just love that someone took the time to take this picture before getting the kid to move.
Awesome! I hadn’t thought of that.
I bet the Mom took the picture!
I just love this because it happens all the time at our house. My husband works nights so when he is trying to go to sleep our two boys are waking up full of energy. He has gotten stepped on and jumped on numerous times, but this picture takes the cake! LMAO! So true!
