That's awesome, and I am clapping my hands right now.

But I'm too god damn lazy as a parent to do anything like this.

Any parent who has the energy to do this shiat is either doing meth or is skipping other important things.

Bingo

After giving the 1 year old a bath, rushing to get dinner done, packing the 7 year olds school lunch, laying clothes out for tomorrow for the family, changing the laundry over, packing my lunch and the wife's lunch, going over the homework, doing his reading with him, playing with said 1 year old, getting the kids to bed, and finally sitting down for 5 minutes all I wanted to do was turn my brain off for an hour while I watched Almost Human.

Damn good show btw

Yeah that seems like something I would do.

Am I to understand that these children actually beleive that their dinosaurs are coming to life?  Because I'm pretty sure that can have some damaging effects on them.

Not any more damaging than believing in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or the omnipotent Sky Fairy.

I hear some abusive parents make their kids believe that a guy in a red suit breaks into their house once a year and gives them stuff.  Horrible, horrible delusions they are.

Every parent should ensure future therapy moments for their kids.

Yep.  Although, as many people have noted, being a parent and having the energy to do these things regularly is unusual.  The Elf starts off strong in our house, but he spends most of the week before Christmas hanging out in one place.

I can't even keep up with the parenting chores in Sims 3. Color me impressed (but don't let the dinos do it, they're kinda messy).

I'm just saying these are good parents. I'm not drawing any conclusions about parents who wouldn't do this, though you make an interesting point about then.

If you don't want to have your child lose their imagination, a la the blog author, sit down and color with them.  Tell them stupid stories on the way to school.  Sing them ridiculous songs about their day.  Turn out all the lights before bed and tell each other stories.

It's not hard, and it doesn't require meticulously photographing everything and posting on a blog to show people how awesome you are.

You literally accused these parents for being "on meth" for having the time/energy to do this. Yeah, if this type of activity is so unfathomable to you as a parent, you're probably not as good of a parent as these people are.

Me and my wife have had 5 kids... including 1 severely handicapped...

You know what.. I did that sort of stuff all the freaking time, it's not hard, it only takes a few minutes of your time.  They are all grown up and I miss those times.

If you feel targeted by the other farkers that appear to understand that having kids can be fun, requires time, and also some devotion, maybe there's a reason for your being defensive...

Not lesbian parents, they teach autoshop to their children.  Unless their children are accidentally boys.  Then they have to learn to sew.  It's science.

This is awesome. I do this with my son's Bizarro Superman figure. Each morning Bizarro is somewhere else in the home. Sometimes he is stealing money or keys or halloween candy. Then my boy gets his Superman toy and defeats Bizarro and puts the items back.

The downside is that we don't feed him dinner or brush his teeth because all the fun Bizzaro time (and the meth) cuts into that serious stuff.
