Dad’s daycare wardrobe fail is cracking parents everywhere up

One dad’s outfit choice for his infant in daycare is going viral today, because he either has no idea what overalls are, or he’s watched one too many episodes of Hee Haw.

Jeremy Basso sent his daughter out the door wearing an outfit that would get by no mom. His wife, Brooke Basso, captured this hilarious exchange:

“Did you send Olivia to daycare without a shirt on?” mom asks, to which dad replies, “Uh, I sent her with that thing on.” Evading the question. Total parent move.

“I do normally dress the baby but that morning I had a job interview so he stayed to do it,” Basso told Scary Mommy. “When I picked her up, I thought perhaps she made a mess on the shirt and the daycare took it off. Our provider simply laughed and said, ‘nope, she came like this!'”

“We laughed about it later that night and have been ever since,” she said. So have we. So have we.

The best part of the post is all the people chiming in in the comment section to tell their own wardrobe fail stories:

We have that stuffed Yoda.


Oops. In his defense, Build-A-Bear wardrobes are pretty intricate.

Yup. No explanation for this one.

It’s like one of those 3-D posters they used to have in every mall. Only certain people can see the dolphin hiding in the puzzle. In this case, only moms can see when their kids are half-naked, apparently.

Not everyone saw the humor in it. There were plenty of women quick to point out that she should be “thankful” he was getting their daughter ready for daycare. Oh, whatever. We heap loads of praise on dads for doing the most benign things that moms never get credit for — like dressing kids, doing their hair, cooking, breathing — we can make fun of their parenting foibles occasionally.

Life is fair like that.
