By I don't know, son - 16/11/2013 01:53 - Canada - Toronto

Today, I was lying beside my 5-year-old son to help him get to sleep. He turned his head and asked, "Daddy, why do you suck so much?" FML
I agree, your life sucks 49 840
You deserved it 4 779

This is exactly why I started a diary when my daughter was born. I write down the funny things she and her brother say, and I fully intend to use them to my full advantage at their respective weddings.

this comment really needs to to stop appearing every time there's an FML about a child who says something funny. It's like the "shitty situation" comment.

but yet 34, the vote count doesnt support your theory.. ya thats right

I don't see it going down yet 53. And if you don't like seeing the comment thumb it down and move on. Your well thought out opinion on the use of a show headliner wasn't needed.

Rarely do I ever see someone with that comment. I don't see many kid related fmls on here, compared to shit related ones.

Face it, 71. You're not all that special. The phrase isn't going anywhere anytime soon since it's been around longer than you have, so just downvote it and move on with your life.

71, honestly? You have outstanding arrogance

Ahh got to love children! So innocent yet so frank at the same time!

frank is right. seems like OP needs to step his game up as dad.

I can imagine your face, I'm sorry OP, maybe he heard the it somewhere and said it, that age is amazing, they repeat everything they hear! Luv those lil ones lol

It's probably because op doesn't serve Ice cream for dinner, have a tv on his head, or fight crime.

Innocent and frank? Have you ever met those little bastards or did you just skip childhood out of spite towards empirical evidence?

I'm pretty sure he said he was lying down with his son trying to help him get to sleep... Sounds like he's a pretty good dad. No need to step things up

maybe he heard your wife say it? or other kids on the playground.. or you on the phone with a boyfriend...

I'd be disturbed if daddy was on the phone with 'a boyfriend'

I think she meant boy friend. as in guy friend.

@24 even if I meant it in a homosexual way why should that bother you? a 5 year old might not get that @29 thank you for seeing what I meant but people in the fml community will probably down vote you for it

and ironically 39 was the one down voted...

39- It would bother me because he is a married man with a 5 year old son, so he shouldn't have a boyfriend.

married men can have boyfriends.....and some wives wouldn't care.....just like some husband's don't care that the wives have girlfriends....

Tell him that you don't suck, but you blow.

No one should ever say that to a kid

"You mean, blow out others' birthday candles? Blow leaves into peoples' yards?"

I hope he's not another five year old with a phone. Kids learn quick.
