Sometimes our best laid parenting plans simply don't work out. We try and try to do what's best for our children, but often things go hilariously awry. There's nothing like a kid or two to make life a little more unpredictable. Like the dad in this video, often when we think we're helping, we're really just getting ourselves into deeper trouble.

The dad in this video, while probably frustrated at his predicament, is really showing that dads everywhere are really superheroes in disguise, on a mission to make their extraordinary children into superhuman adults. The methods of Super Dad may seem a little unorthodox and potentially ill-advised, but give dad his due for being willing to try anything to bring a smile to his child's face. It's an act of pure, ennobling love to jump into a baby crib without any escape plan. It's something only a true Super Dad would do.

Dads are silly and fun, and they usually have a style all their own when it comes to parenting. Often it's best to let dads do their thing in their own way. Every once in a while it leads to an awesome YouTube video, but even more often it leads to great childhood memories.
