It should be abundantly clear by now that dads are master hackers. Not to be confused with your favorite 1995 movie, or master hacks, but in the sense of inventing a clever solution to a common problem or inconvenience. As a father, you bust out your toolkit, aka your intuition and a roll of duct tape, at the first opportunity to teach your kid to switch hit without you having to pitch, catch, or, well, move. That’s a modern definition of hacking, but dads have been doing this since time immemorial, especially with strollers. Because it looks a whole lot cooler for both you and the young’n when you’re pushing a ride that can shoot flames, tear up a test track, or … be a Batmobile. If only there were a teeny tiny Xzibit to tell these kids they’ve officially been pimped.
