Candid Photos That Sum Up What Fatherhood Looks Like

Sometimes parenthood means taking one for the team. Like when you bring home a new toy for the kids, but it comes in 12,686 pieces. So, Dad puts it all together while blissful children eat ice cream — and Mom snaps a photo.

Yes, this is parenting.

Here, it was HuffPost Family and Relationships editorial director Christina Anderson’s family, but her anecdote got us wondering what other images sum up the experience of having small children. We asked our Facebook fans, and were treated to hundreds of hilarious and touching photos.

As a bonus, almost all of them featured dads, front and center.

Author Doyin Richards, of Daddy Doin Work, likely could have predicted the outpouring of awesome dad moment pictures. He already collects posts like this on Instagram, and has shared some of the best submissions here on HuffPost.

Consider this batch of pictures the sequel to Richards’ post. Because in 2014, dads are more involved in their childrens’ lives than ever, and the more images of modern fatherhood the world sees — from messes to manicures to multitasking — the better.
