A Maryland dad ended up causing both hilarity and plenty of spousal drama after he tried to help his daughter get ready for the day.
The mishap started when Brad Friedlander was supposed to take his 3-year-old daughter, Brooklyn, to her music class, NBC News reported. His wife, Aliza, had an early meeting, so she asked her husband to help Brooklyn get dressed.
But that process wasn’t exactly seamless. After Brooklyn managed to dress herself in a pair of “short shorts,” Brad assumed his daughter was ready for class, according to Aliza’s Instagram post describing the ordeal.
When Brooklyn got to class, things got a lot more dramatic. That’s because, as it turned out, Brooklyn’s “short shorts,” were actually potty training underwear.
Aliza was quickly tipped off to the dilemma, and confronted her husband in a text conversation she shared entirely to Instagram — along with photos of Brooklyn’s outfit.
I’ve been a stay at home for more than five years. In May, I started working part-time and this morning I had an event that started before school drop off. My husband stayed home and helped get the kids out for school. Apparently, my daughter decided to wear underwear (not just any underwear but thick diaper like training underwear used for potty training) and told my husband they were “short shorts.” Based on her smile and the fact she locked her door while getting dressed, I’m pretty sure she knew they weren’t shorts!! Swipe ➡️ to see the messages that followed once I was informed of the situation, plus a picture of my daughter in school in underwear and the message I received from my girlfriend who filled me in on what was taking place! At least my husband remembered to brush the girls teeth and clean their newly pierced ears... so there’s that! 🤦♀️😂🤦♀️😂 . . . #workingmoms #worklifemomlife #headshake #funnymorning #lifeofaworkingmom #stayathomemom #stayathomemomlife #toddlers #threeyearsold #itsagoodstory #lotsoflaughs #lol #todayparentingteam #todayshow #todayshowparents #buzzfeedparenting #buzzfeedparents #scarymommy

“She is in underwear,” Aliza texts her husband, who responds, “OK, well don’t leave them in her drawer for her to pick.”
The mom goes on to question her husband’s decision-making, before telling him the incident had become “the talk of the school.”
“At least she was wearing something,” Brad responds.
Brad’s mistake drew plenty of amused reactions on Instagram, with many commenters calling the situation “hilarious.” Aliza, meanwhile, theorized that her daughter knew exactly what she was doing.
“Based on her smile and the fact she locked her door while getting dressed, I’m pretty sure she knew they weren’t shorts,” Aliza wrote.
Ultimately, both parents seemed to take the whole thing in stride.
“When I got the text message from my friend, I just shook my head and laughed,” Aliza told NBC News.
