When you look back at the time you spent with your kids over the years, it’s easy to remember the good parts. It’s also easy to forget about the sleepless nights and fights over spilled milk. It’s nice to remember the good parts. The danger is, you end up having more kids because you think, hey, it was so easy and fun the first time.
Of course, it’s all worth it. The good moments make it all worth it. Keep reading to see a whole list of good moments. Just be careful or you’ll end up with twelve more kids.
They Say Dogs Are Like Their Owners…
A boy and his dog watch a gang and their dog on a Saturday morning… by gang I mean the Mystery Gang, in case that wasn’t clear. No actual gangs in this wholesome picture.
This scene is so serene I just want to jump straight into it.
18 Years Of Fatherhood
I can’t even with these pictures. Eighteen years go by so quickly. Also, this dad still looks as young as ever. Although, I don’t think he’ll be able to throw her on his shoulders anymore now that she’s all grown up.
I bet he’s feeling like he wants to go back in time and do it all over again.
This Is A Cause That I Can Support
I don’t know what she’s protesting, but I do know that I’m behind her all the way. Unless she wants to end nap time. I am a strong supporter of nap time.
However you feel about the state of the world right now, it’s nice to have kids who are interested in politics.
The Rock Is The Perfect Dad
As if The Rock wasn’t dreamy enough, now he has to go on Instagram and show us what a good dad he is? Come on, Dwayne, is there anything you can’t do?
I would let The Rock’s daughter paint my nails in a heartbeat. Does that make me super cool and dreamy too?
Sometimes Kids Are The Best
This dad got home from a long day at work just in time for a goodnight kiss, and for his little dude to tell him that he left a surprise on the kitchen table.
Moments like this make being a parent one hundred percent worth it. Cupcakes aren’t just for kids. Sometimes, dads need them too.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
A guy busking outside of a local supermarket had a kid come up and ask to sing ‘twinkle twinkle’. He played it on the guitar while the kid sang it into the microphone.
This is a win-win situation. I bet the musician got a lot of tips that day.
The Friendship Circle
These kids from daycare are saying their last goodbyes before going off to separate elementary schools. My heart was not prepared for this moment.
I have to believe that they’re going to keep in touch and stay friends forever. One day they’ll bring their own kids to this very daycare and it will all come full circle.
I Think That Lap Is Too Small
Big dogs and small kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. I love this picture so much. Can you believe that this dog is still a puppy? She’s going to be huge when she’s full grown.
I hope this kid is prepared to have a pony-sized pet.
This one-month-old little baby kept her mom up all night. They finally napped together the next day and fell asleep in the same position.
New babies are no walk in the park, but moments like this make you want to freeze time. They grow up so fast.
Calvin And Hobbes
One of the perks of having kids is that you get to dress them up in fun costumes. You haven’t experienced Halloween until you’ve experienced it with kids.
I know you experienced it as a kid, but watching kids freak out about the candy and the costumes is just way more fun.
I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying
Ok, I wasn’t prepared for this one. I’m actually tearing up a bit right now. This mom is super lucky. Remember to save cards like this one.
Keep them in a safe place, because before you know it, they’ll have perfect penmanship and a full-time job.
Redheads Have To Stick Together
This kid just met his aunt for the first time. She’s the only other redhead he’s met, other than his mommy, of course. He looks happy to have found a fellow ginger.
Gingers are a rare breed. They have to look out for each other.
When A Single Father Nails A Side Braid
This is the face of a girl who is super excited that her father did her hair the way she wanted. She looks so incredibly happy. I would be happy too if I had two gorgeous pink bows in my hair.
Let’s take a moment to thank all of the wonderful dads in the world.
This DIY Drive In
This is such a cute idea. I want a little cardboard box car. I think I’m going to have to steal this concept for my kid’s next birthday party.
I kind of miss drive-in movie theaters. Not that I ever went to one, but I miss the idea of them.
Sharing Is Caring
After five years, this kid decided he wanted a haircut. However, he wanted to wait a couple more months to make sure his hair was long enough to donate. His parents must be super proud. Kids like this make parenting easy.
Well, maybe not easy, but definitely easier.
When Mom’s Away, The Kids Will Play
This man’s wife left him alone with the triplets for the day. When she asked for an update he sent her this picture. I can only imagine the amount of work that went into staging this photo.
I guess sometimes you just have to go for it. You have to take the risk…
The Happiest Baby
This little girl and her daddy snuck out early to get donuts for Mommy. She knows that donuts aren’t the healthiest breakfast option, but she doesn’t care.
She even kind of looks like a pink donut with sprinkles. This girl is dressed for the occasion.
Hiker Baby Is Here To Brighten Your Day
Oh my goodness, this baby’s smile is the cutest thing I’ve seen all day. I miss taking my little ones for walks like this.
It kind of makes you want to have another baby, doesn’t it? Just so you can carry them around like a little backpack…
Hello There, Mr. Baggins
This kid is going to be Frodo Baggins for Halloween. The only way this could get any cuter would be if there were some more kids in his general vicinity dressed up as Sam and Pippin and Merry and even Gollum.
Does this mean that this kid needs some siblings?
Two Adoptees Chilling Together
They’ve had the dog for two days and the human for eleven years. This kid looks super happy. The dog just looks tired. I don’t know much about this family, but I do know that they have a dog and some cool headphones.
Maybe they’ll adopt me too.
