Things you can do when you're drunk

 

Toddlers get to break all the rules. They can walk around the house with only socks on, bite their own toenails, smash cupcakes into their mouth hole with complete disregard for self-respect… you know, the standard stuff. In this video, Tripp and Tyler go the extra mile to make it clear that toddlers are just tiny badasses that dgaf.

Of course, you could pull all that sh*t off if you were totally wasted too.

Meet Spider-Dad

Spider-Dad

There’s been a lot of superhero dad action as of late.

There’s this solider who came home to surprise his son dressed as Spider-Man, the always fun-loving BatDad, Lambo BatDad pulled over on the way to a children’s hospital, YABD (yet another BatDad) with BatKid who saved San Francisco that one time, this TrollDad who stood outside on his doorstep every morning for a year waving to his son’s bus, and the ever so popular I know a good dad when I see one dad.

Now, those are just a few of the dads out there that are sharing some superhero awesomeness with their kids. So what could possibly tingle our Spidey-Sense again?

fireworks

Here’s a little video of Benjamin Ames and his daughter singing a song on camera. The idea was to keep her mind preoccupied one night after hearing fireworks so she could go to sleep which turned into father/daughter cuteness overload.

“In the end, nothing competes with fireworks.”

The YouTube description goes on to read, “(To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email licensing@storyful.com)”

In the end, nothing competes with the sale of a cute viral video.

All about the Benjamin. Well played, Ames. Well played.

Good Man, Better Father

Why is this dad awesome? Click play below to hear from his daughter or read the transcript below.

Text from audio:

This photo is the root of a much bigger project I’m currently working on, but I needed somewhere to start and if I tackle it in smaller bits, it will be easier to put together what I’ve got so far and not overwhelm my heart so much.

This is my dad. With him is my eldest sister, Sonny. She’s fought her way through 25 years on this earth and found herself with the great fortune of a loving family. My dad works a full time job he hates, and everyday he comes home and gets to work his other fulltime, thankless job—he gets to be the caretaker for my sister.

She’s got the cognitive ability of a two or three year old, with limited speech and mobility and function. Like a baby, trapped within the temperament of a toddler and in the body of a young woman. They eat dinner in this big chair in front of the T.V. and fall asleep together every night.

I made the hard decision to move home from across the country and have stumbled across these quiet moments of my father.

He’s the kind of man that had a family young. He works whatever jobs he must, he’s been sober for 23 years, and a single dad for 13. He’s one of those remarkable people who’s suffered more than they deserve yet continues to love unconditionally.

I’m one of his daughters, and there are fewer things in this world I’m prouder to be.

Now that your eyes are sweating, give Cowbird a like over on Facebook.
