Parenting. You can read fifty books about it and still not really know what's coming until you bring your first baby home. At first, it's all daunting. How often do you change them? Which diapers should you buy? How the heck does a baby monitor even work?
Like any full-time job, parenting has a steep learning curve at first, but, over time, you start to build up a bag of tricks to deal with all the sticky (literally and figuratively) situations that arise. One NFL star recently showed everyone that he's not only a great athlete, but that he's got parenting hacks to spare.
Foraging into unknown territory is exciting.
Congrats, the baby's here! Life is good.
When we find out we're on our own, it can be a bit of a shock.
Confusion sets in.
Pretty soon though? You're a bonafide rock star.
The student becomes the teacher. Thankfully.
This NFL dad is not only well-seasoned, he's got parenting tricks you'll want to steal.Chad "Ocho Cinco" Johnson, is a household name for NFL fans. Famous for his quick moves on the field (for the Bengals, Patriots, Dolphins) and his commentary off of it, Johnson is no stranger to fame, fortune, and balancing the busy life of a professional athlete. His witty posts on social media keep his fans thoroughly entertained. But football and social media aren't the only things he excels at.
Sometimes, outsmarting your kids is the key to smooth parenting.

A good lesson for life is that all those fun things someone just bought you? Yeah, they can be returned.Johnson's daughter learned early that a shopping spree can be reversed very quickly. Followers of the NFL pro were doubling over at the little lady's reaction after she, fed up drops her bags, and her dad assures her he "can take it all back." A hilarious, conflicted look spreads across her face, and she decides to walk back and reclaim her treasures instead of leaving them behind.
The video reminds us a little bit of ourselves.

The main lesson here is that all parents find teachable moments in everyday life. Some of them cuter than others.
