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

Kids say the darnedest things.

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

well that backfired #38

38, lol it will soon enough ;)

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.

66 don't tell me what to do.

OP's username is the answer.

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!

"Good question, son.."

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

Ah kids....

That's why I'm glad I don't have any

that's when you divert the conversation and say "why dont you ask mommy.."

How is that diverting the conversation?

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...

54. We all saw that coming

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....

I would be worried about what your babysitter does when you're away.

45- Riveting..

A lot of creativity here!

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

kyle4955 12

No one should ever say that to a kid

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

He's going to grow up to be a great man

That sucks so much.

just like these comments. including this one

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