Father’s Day Bloopers
Dad the Film Director
Whenever my children are having a moment, my husband takes a picture or video. While that may seem ordinary for most proud parents, my husband’s point of view is to take photographs only when the children are misbehaving. Last Father’s Day my son Josh was having a meltdown because he didn’t want to go to grandfathers for dinner. Well Josh was ranting and raving my husband grabbed his cell phone and took a picture. As you can imagine this resulted in our son having escalated behavior. With giant crocodile tears streaming out of his eyes Josh asked my husband “why are you taking pictures of me?” In which my husband replied “so we can help you remember what a bad kid you are.”

Dad the Non-Chef
Our dad loves to spend time in the kitchen. Space there’s only one problem, he’s not very good at it. We gave him a cookbook once and he looked puzzled. Our mom asked him what the problem was in which my dad replied “I can’t do anything with this cookbook.” My mother looking perplexed asked why.
