1. Change Diapers
Via Instagram They even do it in public when they can’t find a men’s room with a changing table (which happens far too often).
2. Shower their kids with affection
The uptight dad who can’t tell his kids “I love you” might make a good character in a Lifetime movie, but today’s dads make sure their kids know they’re loved.
3. Get out of bed in the middle of the night.
via Instagram Whether it’s to feed the baby, soothe an older child back to sleep after a nightmare, or check up on a teenager, dads aren’t snoring all night long. (I mean, they’re probably snoring, but they’re getting up too.)
A 2013 study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that on an average day, 41% of dads did food preparation or clean-up.
5. Do their daughters’ hair.
