    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.

    Steve knew that one day his family would just walk all over him…

  3. Jasmine says:

    this kid look eerily like my little cousin Josh. I seriously thought it WAS him.

  4. Meagan says:

    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!

    • CB says:

      ….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*

    It is a good thing that boy is potty trained!

  8. Tony says:

    Now THAT’S a beat-down!

  9. LulzJ says:

    Too funny. Love this picture, and I can totally sympathize. Been there, done that. 🙂

  10. Cristina says:

    To the younger folk this is funny. To us parents, it’s just daily life.

  11. Jodi says:

    Hilarious, and also doesn’t this little one remind you of Michelle on Full House when she was a baby?

  12. Biribi says:

    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.”

  15. Hyacinth says:

    In your face, Dad. IN YOUR FACE!

  16. Astrid says:

    Oh this is so true – nothing like being used as furntiure/climbing equipment/jungle gym by your kids

  17. Melissa says:

    Is dad dead? Who could sleep through that?!?

  18. Breea says:

    That man must have been tired. Love it.

  19. Shannon says:

    This is a perfect example why I don’t have kids – I don’t think stuff like this is cute at all.

    • Steve Gargin says:

      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.

      • Kat says:

        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!

    • Kelly says:

      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

      • Christie says:

        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?

  20. Tara Wright says:

    Face it, this is awesome…not awkward…just awesome!

  21. treeman says:

    …ohh, i love this.
    it reminds me of a lot of things… …i was the kid.
    love it.

    who didn´t do that to his/her father…
    …if you didn´t, than try today. gonna be fun.

  22. Newton says:

    Another reason why I will never be a father.

  23. Kathryn says:

    Looks like Jr. just won this round of King of the Hill.

  24. Lori says:

    I just love that someone took the time to take this picture before getting the kid to move.

  25. Jenny says:

    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!
