Parenting Tip #318 – Nothing Ever Looks Perfect

nothing ever looks perfect parenting tip

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 something like 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.

  1. You are a good dad. And a really, really funny one at that. Haters be damned I say! Keep up the good work. I would love to year you call in to the KQRS morning radio show in Minneapolis (Tom Barnard show) the listeners would adore your humor. It’s a number one rated show in the U.S. check it out – Take care – Anne
