Babies Are Useful, and Will Clean Your House

If you aren’t a parent, you’ve probably heard that babies are hard work. You have to feed them, keep them clean, get them stuff, stop them from putting poisonous things in their mouths and generally thwart their attempts to unintentionally inflict great physical harm upon their person. You have to do everything for them, really. But what if they could do something for you in return, besides the cute smiles and first words?

YouTuber “How to Dad,” whose video we first saw at The Awesomer, seems to have it figured out. His baby–more of a toddler, really–obliges by doing all the household chores when asked nicely. Dishes, trash, windows, vacuuming…the kid does it all. Well, all except one thing. We won’t spoil, except to say it involves a fixture we all need, but babies aren’t quite trained to use properly yet.

Yes, granted, this is probably all movie magic, but it’s still cute as $#%@, and to be honest, that li’l one probably will grow up doing chores better than the other babies on the block. If Maggie Simpson were a real baby, she’d be a lot like this one.

How to Dad’s other advice videos are a bit more practical, but if this is any indication, it looks like he’ll be going farther afield than just parenting basics from here on. What would you like to learn, child-care-wise, from this master of manly and mannerly persuasion? Let us know your thoughts in comments.
