    Whoever said you need to give up playing video games when you become a parent is mistaken. Moms and dads may sometimes have different parenting styles, but the love and care they give their children are the same. But just because you become a parent doesn't mean you have to abandon your hobbies — well, at least not all.

    In honor of Father's Day, we asked moms from our Smart Parenting Village to share their husbands' talents in parenting. Of course, we received a lot — all of them worthy of praise and worthy of honoring (even if it was teasing their wives or making the baby cry!).

    Of course, if daddy is good at sports, arts, or music, he's in charge of honing his kids' similar talents. Still, there are some oddballs. One dad could perfectly tie his daughter's hair in a ponytail. Another was better at mom in feeding solid food to their child. The list goes on and on.

    Multi-tasking dads playing video games while on baby duty!

    We noticed, however, that for each of these celebrated daddy talents and skills, we got a photo of a father playing video games while on baby duty. Who could have even thought of playing a video game while putting the little one to sleep? How did they get their toddler to behave as they play a PlayStation 4 game?

    These photos are proof that dads are multitaskers! Just remember to keep an eye on your kid!

    Playing video games while on baby duty is not new! Actor JC Santos posted a similar photo recently. But it's nice to know dads can fuse their me-time with parenting time. Moms are envious right now. The best thing about it? Dads don't have an excuse to take over baby duty more times during the day!
