Raising kids can be stressful and difficult, but it can also be a lot of fun and even hilarious. Sometimes things go wrong, like a meltdown in a major store or a nightmare blowout when you forgot to pack a change of clothes, but you know how they say you’ll laugh about it later? It’s so true.

What’s really great is when you can find the humor in everyday live while it’s happening, and what’s even better is when you can create the humor.

Many parents love to take pictures of their children, and some of them even get really creative, staging photos that make their Instagram followers do double takes.

Sholom Ber Solomon is one funny dad, and he has always liked to dress up in costumes and take funny photos. It was only natural that when his daughter, Zoe Tegan Solomon, was born, he’d put her in the photos too. Luckily, she really enjoys the family time, being silly with her dad while mom snaps the pics.

Solomon’s Instagram has 337,000 followers, so we’re not the only ones who like his sense of humor. Here are 15 reasons we love these posts so much.

  1. The Concepts

    It’s so simple – a mailman and a puppy. Yet, it’s super genius.

  2. The Execution

    @sleepscore is easier than counting sheep for a good nights Z’s- Now to say that being a new parent is not a whole new experience, unlike any prior, is like suggesting getting tickets to see a monkey in a tuxedo singing renaissance opera isn’t the most entertaining Tuesday night you can have this month. The overwhelming love excitement passion and devotion to this new addition is exhilarating and phenomenal. But with great responsibility comes great exhaustion. I recently was introduced to this product called @sleepscore, it is unequivocally revolutionary. Without the need to be plugged up with electrodes like a dead car battery you simply download an app and place your phone next to the bed. After a normal nights sleep the app will give you incredibly useful data on how and how much you slept. The sleepscore app will also give you an in depth run down on your sleeping patterns by using your microphone and speaker to send and receive silent waves that are reflected off your body. The process is called echolocation and it’s similar to what bats and dolphins use. With some help with your sacred Z’s you won’t need a bathtub of coffee or staple your eyelids to your forehead to appreciate your precious little munchkins first… everything. Also, you could win $25,000 by entering into @SleepScore and @PotteryBarn Sleep Sanctuary Sweepstakes! You just have to download the new app and track your sleep for 7 nights – simple!
