How to Be a Dad

The Toy Salesman (VIDEO)

Posted by on March 29th, 2012, under VIDEOTAPE

Try as parents might to get their kids on board for all kinds of stuff, our kids still rebel.

Try these brussel sprouts, you’ll love them! Let’s go to the dentist! It’s fun! C’mon, change your own diaper! Hygiene is cool!

But it’s not just the lame stuff we’re supposed to get them to do. It’s also the stuff that we WANT them to do or like. Movies, music, toys, food. You say, “But I LOVED it when I was growing up!”

Anyway, here’s a look at this parental phenomenon and a desperate dad’s attempt to get an early start at getting around the generational gap…

So, will we keep trying? You bet. Will we fail? Probably. But will ever stop being nostalgic about our own childhood and thrusting upon our own children? NOPE.

Not sure if you’ll see more videos with Andy in them. He’s kinda hogging the limelight. I can’t have that. Whatevs.

    Swings and dolls. Swings and dolls. So far, my 3 year old will do one push on the swing before he’s screaming his head off – “BUT I LOVED THIS AS A KID!” And my 3 month old screams her head off at any doll put in eye sight…

    /sigh

    Riding a trike or bike. He has *zero* interest in anything with wheels or pedals. All kids like this right? Well, actually, this post made me realize I didn’t really like bikes either growing up! I learned how around 6 or 7, but rarely actually got on one of those things! Genetic?!?

      Ha ha! That’s too bad. ;) I guess we’ll have to leave it to crappy Hollywood reboots of our favorite things to bring them into our kids’ lives.
