Fatherhood is awesome. And a ton of responsibility, maybe the biggest there is. Most fathers take that responsibility seriously—they just have a funny way of showing it sometimes, especially when the kids are left alone with Dad. This list shows that some dads are a little more serious than others. But we gotta love dads who are still kids at heart, even if their playful adventures and creative problem-solving might make us shake our heads. If you ask ’em, they’d say they’ve got it all under control. And maybe they do. But these hilarious images sure seem to explain why dads can’t be left alone with the kids.

Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad. Love lime juice on chef salads and Rudy's BBQ sauce on my brisket.Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for the phone while I'm still talking on it. On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
