These GIFs (by the way, it’s pronounced “jif”…like the peanut butter) resonate with me as a father of four daughters. They illustrate the highs and lows of parenting, simple and plain.
1. When you think you got this. And. You don’t.
2. When your kid gets the ball. In any sport.
3. When you’re forced to leave your house and hang out. With other adults.
4. When it feels like your parenting game is on point and your kids decide to steal your joy.
5. When your kid naps.
6. When you get the smallest thing done while working from home. Any. Small. Thing.
7. When you and the wife are trying to have a grown folk conversation and the kids are being nosey.
8. When your teen has been on their cell ALL day.
9. When the kids FINALLY go to sleep and you and your wife have some time to yourselves.
