13 dads that can not be trusted to be left alone with their babies
Having only two mindsets; feverish obsession or blithe abandon, I worry about my ability to successfully raise a child.
One the one hand, I will guard a particularly aesthetically pleasing piece of fruit with my life, petrified at the thought that someone other than myself might try to eat it. Conversely, I have been known to flood a bathroom - twice - because I had started to run a bath, got distracted, and come back 45 minutes later to a scene that made Pirates of the Caribbean seem laughably tame in comparison.
This heady mix of passionate fixation and apathetic absent mindedness, one feels certain, does not lend itself particularly well to the solemn task of parenting. Perhaps my partner would be successful in balancing out my yo-yoing tendencies, and, after seeing these dads who definitely shouldn't be trusted to look after their babies on their own, you'll be hoping that they have a similarly watchful spouse.

6. Best helmet ever

8. When your kid wants a swing, you find a way
9. You can't say this dad isn't perceptive. Kiwi = tiny head

13. Superbowl party prep
Parenting is far from an easy gig, but these dads seem to be making it work for them the only way they know how. Good luck to them.
