An Instagram comment to this note really made me laugh. It said something to effect of “you must be a sad person if you need this” meaning I must be a terrible parent if I need a photo editing program to make me look like a better dad.
Here’s what’s sad — 1) people haven’t figured out yet everything I write is a joke and 2) there’s no such thing as a perfect parent. Perfect in pictures is possible. Perfect in life is impossible.
I’d rather look like the worst dad ever in my notes and be the best dad I could be in real life.
