This is what happens when dads are left to dress their kids

You had one job.

But clearly it was too hard for these dads who failed with flying colour at dressing their children.

This week Jeremy Basso joined the club of #epicdadfails with his attempt at dressing his seven-month-old daughter, Olivia for daycare. He selected a lovely pair of overalls but forgot one key component – an undershirt.

My darling husband Jeremy got the baby dressed and took her to daycare this morning. This is how things went down when I picked her up! #daddyfail

When his wife, Brooke picked their daughter up from daycare later in the day, she was slightly confused and sent her husband a text asking what was going on with Olivia’s attire.

“I sent her with that thing on,” was his hilarious reply before pleading ignorance of any wardrobe malfunction.

The hilbilly look has taken the Internet by storm with thousands of comments and shares after Brooke posted the text and accompanying photo to Facebook. But, it turns out Jeremy isn’t the only dad out there who hasn’t quite mastered the fine art of dressing bub. Thousands of mums commented on Brooke’s post, even posting additional photos to prove that she isn’t alone.

Commenter, Alison Weber admits that her husband’s attempt at dressing their daughter didn’t quite go to plan either –  completely backward in fact.

Jessica Bennett’s husband is also a natural when it comes to dressing his son, choosing to forgo clothes altogether in lieu of a toolbox, suspenders and ski goggles.

My husband got our ten week old baby dressed for bed- I came downstairs to find him dressed like this! My husband said…

But don’t worry dads – you really aren’t alone! Last year new dad Nick Davies made a similar mistake as he attempted to dress his son, Lenny in a onesie. Nick took the innovative approach, opting to put the onesies on upside down so his son would have “added scratch mitts” and “easy access for nappy changing”.

The force is strong with this one.

Even Max Zuckerberg, daughter of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg seems unimpressed with her dad’s attempt to dress her. “Yes, dad, I get it. You love Star Wars. Now give me back to Mum so she can properly dress me.” 

Dressing dilemmas can be a common parenting problem, especially as little ones grow and decide they want to dress themselves… or you. Check out what happened when I let my three-year-old daughter choose my outfits for the week. Let’s just say school drop offs were interesting…
