There's nothing quite like being caught in the middle of doing something that you know isn't right, but you just can't help yourself anyways. This daughter certainly had the shock of her life.

Poor dad was just trying to play along as he went about a fun day at a trampoline center of sorts, and proceeded to really bring that poor back of his some pain. Just got to walk that one off, man. At least the lesson was learned when it's all said and done.

Parenting Memes for Those Who Feel the Pain

Parenting is a challenge. If you don't have a kid yourself, parents will be very willing to tell you that it's a full time job making sure they stay safe, get fed, get enough sleep and learn something every once in a while. Of course parenting is full of ungraceful moments. That's why there are parenting memes for all the exhausted adults.

Mom Lets Black Widows Hatch, They Escape

In an extremely ill-advised parenting move, this mom kept a black widow spider and its egg sack in what she thought was a sealed container. It doesn't take much thought to realize why this is probably not a good idea. In fact, in may even be a bad idea. A really bad idea. For something slightly less bad but still about spiders, here's a tumblr thread on how wolf spiders run cranberry bogs.

Twitter Thread: The Wildly Creepy Junk Kids Say

There are many clear signs that kids are weird and stupid, but sometimes that weirdness manifests itself as intense creepiness. Being  impressionable and not really understanding the world too good, kids have extremely vivid imaginations and sometimes just say things. Things about faces in the walls and dead people watching them. The kind of things you really hope are untrue.

This kid learned to ride a bike and then leveled up further when he rapped off a solid, motivational speech. Basically, we should all feel happy of ourselfs. Let that be the new mantra that guides you through the rollercoaster of 2021.

Yet another confirmation that kids are just plain old weird. They say the silliest things. You never really know what to expect.

Entitled Influencer's Dad Disputes Contest, Ruins Entire Project

All it had to be was a dumb marketing project with some giveaway stuff, but one "do you know who my father is" type just had to be involved. Overzealous and aggressive parents speaking on behalf of their children can lead to a lot of pain and suffering down the road, like this parent who blamed a teacher for their own kid not being in virtual class.

Entitled Mom Brings Kid To Daycare With Tablet, Gets Booted

Every parent has a different way of parenting, but that doesn't really fly when it comes to dropping off your kids at a daycare business. This lady tried to undermine the rules and it got her the boot. Hopefully that kid will one day learn to exist without a tablet. For another entitled parent moment, here's a parent who blamed the teacher for their own kid not showing up to virtual class.

For some, mayonnaise is definitely one of those rare condiments that pairs nicely with a wide array of foods, but when consumed by itself it is absolutely gnarly. Props to the girl for powering through like she did. Poor mom was mortified.

Tumblr Users Explain Older Generations' Confusing Texts

This enlightening Tumblr thread shines light on the glaring differences that can arise in a texting conversation between a millennial and a boomer or GenXer. Basically, it boils down to the millennials (or younger generations in general) trying to text like they think they'd sound in real life, while the boomers are apt to text more formally and technically correct regardless of how it'd sound when read out loud. 

These different approaches definitely contribute toward some avoidable misinterpretations between folks. What you might've viewed as a passive aggressive text from a parent was actually just them trying to space out their words more. Weird.

There's no denying the fact that we love our dad jokes here. What we might love even more than the typical dad joke is when we get to see a daughter overwhelm her dad with pride over her successful telling of a dad joke herself. Dad pretty much looks like he's never been more proud of something before in his life.
