Back in the early days of 2006, when our own Pete Wentz was guzzling red drink in music videos and was just about to have his Sidekick stolen, we really never expected him to ever attend barbecues or PTA meetings. Yet, since the birth of his sons Bronx (age seven) and Saint (turning two this summer!), Pete has risen like a phoenix into the world of fatherhood. We gotta say #thankspete for posting on social media so we can scream and cry our (car crash) hearts out.
…when Bronx knows his true emo heritage
when we're driving home from school and the 7yr old is on a tangent about life that ends with “its ok dad everybody dies one day” uh :/

…when he watches on the field during Little League practice
…when he says what all dads (and, let’s be honest, the rest of us) are thinking
My only real goal in life is to be able to wear sweatpants every day and not be judged.

…when cooking for the kids meets technology
Is there a website where you enter what food you have in your kitchen and it tells you recipes so you can be lazy & not go to the store?

…when he shows them his Midwest roots
…when he’s tryna use Snapchat filters and they’re only half-working
…when he quotes Winnie the Pooh and we all cry
…when even early wake up calls come with musical references (and a sense of humor)
When the 1 yr old wakes up at 6am on Saturday I'm all -sia voice- “I am aliiiiiiive”

…when good taste runs in the family
…when the rules of Tag are still legit
I was pleased to hear that the “no tag backs” stipulation is still a big part of tag.

…when he relives his own childhood??! (This isn’t fair.)
There is a part of me that wishes I could go back to the time when I would fall asleep in the car and my dad would carry me in the house.

…when he lets that wisdom rain
As a kid you are punished for being disruptive. As adults we are encouraged to be disruptive.

…when only Chewbacca knows your feels
…when Star Wars raises the real questions
Watching Star Wars with the 7 yr old he says “why does everyone have such gross tongues?”

…when the stumper wants to play ball with the big kids
