Dads are a special breed, aren’t they? They’re at once dashing and nerdy, encouraging and protective, immature and yet so old. It happens to the best of men when their first child appears in the world and honestly, it makes them a little bit better.

A fact these 15 men seem to realize, because they’re really leaning into the whole experience.

15. How else will he be able to say “do you know what our electric bill is?”

And “are you gotta get a job and pay it?”

14. Yeah that definitely happened.

But I’d be willing to bet they’re all used to it.

13. They always find a way to kill your alone time.

Even if they’re not there, right?!

12. I know what’s going in that kid’s stocking this Christmas.

Portable jump boxes are the best thing since sliced bread.

11. It’s a rite of passage.

But not one anyone really wants to complete.

10. Welcome to the club, sir.

It’s not very stylish here but we’re all okay with that.

9. You gotta make good time.

Nothing else is more important.

8. Sometimes you gotta pull rank.

Before you pull a muscle playing running back.

7. I know this happens to everyone.

But literally music sucks now.

6. My husband is currently using this line, but with a grill.

We’re making hamburgers inside this summer yay.

5. It will be years before he admits his mistake.

But also he will start calling professionals from now on.

4. It’s only charming when dads do it.

And only marginally so, then.

3. Not that there’s anything wrong with the way tween girls dress, right?

You’ll learn, sir. Especially if you have daughters.

2. This one’s a classic.

And one dads always regret but will never admit it.

1. Hahaha this is my favorite one yet!

Who does that?!

If you’re gonna do something, might as well go all out, right?
