A self-proclaimed ‘cool dad’ has learned some unsettling facts about his kids today after circumstances forced him to undertake his fatherly duties for the first time in years.
The former highschool footy hero/bully had successfully managed to avoid doing any of the boring activities, such as changing nappies or getting up in the middle of the night for a feed, choosing instead to ‘contribute’ by getting the kids interested in activities he likes.
However, after losing his job at the mill, Steve Lisner  has had to step up to the plate and take care of his three boisterous children, who’ve quickly worked out they can get away with more shit when dad’s around.
Though he thought being a stay at home parent would be a breeze compared to slogging long hours logging, Steve has quickly discovered how full-on – and terrible – his children are.
“DAAAAAAD Liam’s cheating”, whines Bec, the little snitch, “he’s looking everything up on his phone.”
When Liam counters that Bec didn’t brush her teeth that morning, a disappointed Steve silently acknowledges that his kids wouldn’t do well on the streets.
He contemplates whipping out for a quick dart but reckons the eagle-eyed little dibber dobbers would no doubt tell the missus as soon as she gets through the door.
More to come.
