Dad Pants

Sometimes at the park, sprinkles from the night before or morning dew collect as water droplets on the slides.

What is a child to do?

Never worry, never fear, dad and his grungy sweatpants are here!

Yes, the kids watch as their father takes the first plunge on each of the slides and his pants act as an effective towel for moisture removal.

Dad is done.

With dry playground equipment, let the park fun commence.

Even if dad's clothing is now discolored and he walks awkwardly.

You know that you're also responsible for turning on that glowing orb in the sky each morning. They're right in believing that. :)

You are so nice! Yes, parents are the ultimate cleaning rag for our kids sometimes, aren't we?

Good dad! You deserve a cookie.

Kristen @ Motherese said...

Just another piece of evidence that you are a great dad!

(I keep a ratty old towel in my trunk for that very purpose; it seems like my dedication is lacking.) ;)

You're a grungy sweat pant hero!

My hero moments: when my kids were small, if they put too much food in their mouth at one time or didn't like the taste of something, they spit out the food in my hand. Gross, right?

Stina Lindenblatt said...

ROFL. You won't see me or my husband doing that.

You are a father to be admired. Although why not bring along a towel and slide down on it?

Ciara said...

LOL, this is SO true for moms or dads. I usually have some sort of rag or jacket to sacrifice to the slide god, though.

JoDee Luna said...

Dad is great! Especially because he is not worried about his appearance to any one but his kids.

Nikole Hahn said...

LOL. Sweat pants come in handy, too, on hot summer days so you don't get scalded on the hot playground equipment.
