Parenting Tip #318 – Nothing Ever Looks Perfect

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.
