I thought it would be fitting to share my thoughts on The Fatherhood given this is a dad blog and all!  I couldn’t help but laugh at all the parallels in this video compared to my life as a dad.  The video opens with mum putting the kids in the back seat for dad to drive them around for a while to put them to sleep.  I can totally relate to trying to keep the kids from a) crying in the back of the car, but then b) once they start crying, trying to calm them down and maintain my sanity while driving. Thirdly, this poor chap is in desperate need of some peace and quiet and sleep and none of that’s going to happen until those kids are asleep.  I personally know many new parents that literally drive their kids around the block trying to get them to sleep.  Now, how much petrol is consumed in the process, I’ll never know, but I’ll tell you, the cost of silence and sanity?  Priceless!

So, the setting here is an old-style 80s song with the requisite horribly dressed 80s band in the background and some of the lines are absolutely priceless.  Any video with a unicorn is bound to be funny, but the dad starts reciting various experiences we can all relate too – lack of sleep, vomit on his shoulder, wondering if he’ll turn into his father! (I totally have, I hate to admit it).  Some of the scenes have him questioning his own sanity, surely due to lack of sleep and well, I’ll let you watch the video to see how it ends.

In this case, the video is professionally done and brought to you by Fiat, so you’ll probably see this going viral in the next few days.

Take a look and surely you’ll see the parallels!
