A new video from vlogger "Average Dad" nails how as parents, we so look forward to our baby's first words. "Mommy!" "Daddy!" But there is one hated, feared, despised, dreaded word no parent wants their child to learn and repeat...and repeat, and repeat.
Because how many times can you read the same book? How many times can you make the same face? In my case, how many times can you listen to "Elmo's Song" before you drive off the road? And in the case of "Average Dad," how many times can he sing "Wheels on the Bus" and throw his little girl up in the air?
Answer: a million.
It can be brutal. Despite his child's adorable little giggle each and every time. Even watching this dad toss his sweet daughter up in the air over and over and over (and over) AGAIN made me exhausted.
Too bad there's no relief coming anytime soon, guy. Because as "Average Dad" soon reveals, his wife also wanted to do something AGAIN.
It looks like the couple is expecting baby #2! Um, congratulations?!
Better not get too rusty with your "Wheels on the Bus" lyrics, Dad. The good news? You also get to relive your favorite moments of parenthood AGAIN.
Now it's your turn! What's something your child asks you to do repeatedly (that is the bane of your existence)?
