Clueless new dads make for the best Internet material. They're just getting a handle on this whole caring-for-a-tiny-person-thing, which is no small task, so mistakes are made. Frequently. Our current favorite Internet Dad is Jeremy, who has no idea how to dress a child.
Jeremy's wife Brooke, Imgurian Laureeadeline, posted this photo of their daughter at daycare... After she'd been dressed and dropped off by Dad in the morning.
...Yes, she is shirtless and in overalls. What a look.
So, the amused mother decided to clue her husband in on the mistake. It was pretty glorious.
Oh, Jeremy. His child fashion ignorance has won him some Internet fame— the photo has racked up over 150,000 views on Imgur.
"I had no idea she was dressed like that until I picked her up," Brooke told TODAY Parents. "When I picked her up from daycare, I thought perhaps she spilled out of her diaper and maybe they removed the shirt that I assumed she was brought in. Our provider just laughed and said, 'No, Jeremy brought her in like that, and we just thought OK. We all just laughed about it."
Jeremy added, "It was hanging in the closet, and I just grabbed it and thought it was some sort of tank top. It was funny after I thought about it. I suppose (dads should) send a picture to their wives if they second guess themselves. But, Olivia didn't seem to mind, so it was all good."
Of course, plenty of
hapless dads Imgurians jumped to the father's defense.
It happens to the best of us. A for effort, though! Besides, we've all gone shirtless with overalls at some point in our lives. Probably.
And hey, she made it to daycare, right? Successful parenting, check.
Although, some were less than impressed at Jeremy's dadding skills. And his comprehension of the English language.
Thank goodness there's photo evidence. This will be one of those cherished memories to bring up every Father's Day until the end of time.
