How I Feel In Photos

As a sleep-deprived new dad adjusting to life with daughter, I find these pictures completely funny but totally relatable. The images are of Dave Engledow and daughter Alice Bee. What started as a single photo, became a viral hit in Facebook. The pictures, all 56 of them, are planned to make into a calendar. The goal of the project has always been to create something that, although funny, also offers lessons to both parents and non-parents. Really, I have yet to see a new dad too excited to be left alone at the house with a baby. They would rather defuse bombs than change nappies.

These father and daughter portraits are exactly as amusing as they are sweet. What could be more charming than a baby with a lit match next to a pile of fireworks?

P.S. Sorry for guys who are more excellent as mothers than their female counterparts. I know its not flesh and blood but heart that makes a good parent.


  1. This post made me smile... poor daddy... I wish my hubby to be wont be like that when we have our own children :)

  2. I'm sure he won't. Because I'm quite sure you will choose a good person for a husband. And good husbands almost always end up as good fathers. So, good luck Genskie! Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Really, really cool photoshop! Galing ng creator kahanga hanga ang ideas nya! and talent nya as well!

  4. Tama ka Ric. Cute and idea parang lahat naman ng new dads dumaan sa ganito. Minsan nga kahit old dads, they still go crazy taking care of kids

  5. These pictures made me remember my old life as a stay at home mom , even the ironing part as there was a time when my two eldest daughters took the intiative of ironing their clothes one busy rainy morning because they were not fully dry. They were both in grade school and I did not know how to react as I was busy changing diapers and preparing their breakfast.
