If you've ever been on parenting duty, you know that it's a rollercoaster in the truest sense. Little ones start to bawl, things break, and suddenly you're on the verge of a nervous breakdown. But then a dad joke comes along and you know that everything will be alright.

Fathers are wonderful creatures. Sure, they're sometimes charmingly lackadaisical. But they inspire entire TV shows and a whole different approach to parenthood for a reason. Moms don't get how they manage. Nobody does, except the wonderful weirdos that are the dads of our world. The 'Life of Dad' Instagram page has been on the mission to "celebrate the adventures of fatherhood" for a while now, and so Bored Panda handpicked the pinnacle of dad memes from the page for you to chuckle at.

All children deserve parents, not all parents deserve children. Be kind to everyone, you have no idea what they're going through and how much they need it.

omg... This past Mother's Day my daughter (14) and her two friends wanted to make me cards. I was expecting the average teenager stuff, you know like HAPPY MOTHER'S day with a heart, but both her friends wrote out how much I have helped and listened to them when they were down. I broke down and started crying because my goal as a mom was to be the person I needed when I was a kid. That day, I realized that I have reached my goal 😌😌😌

There is still hope for all the bits and pieces I have kept for years.

Aw, he/she has blind faith in the awesomeness of his/her sibling. That is cute. But maybe step in before they make the first flight attempt!

I wish I could have done this for my dad :( He sustained a catastrophic brain injury when I was 18 and was bedridden/near-vegetative for 20+ years. He died in 2021. I was the only one in my family who stayed at his bedside the night he died, and I was able to hold his hand as he went. But I sure wish I could have at least poured a beer into his feeding tube!

Yeah... I'm starting to think it's the people that are the problem and not the marriage.

If I was playing with the older controllers maybe but the new ones have too many buttons. I was really looking forward to annihilating my kid in Super Smash Bros. I used to be darn near unbeatable but apparently I don't have the brain capacity to learn how the switch controllers work.

😂 I mean understandable. Subway is not exactly food, it’s more like having a mistake made in front of you.

It’s all the couch’s fault in my house. And gravity is an accomplice. All family members are innocent bystanders in the whodunnit mystery of “where did the remote go?”
