Dad Gets Overwhelmed by His Crying Babies & Calls the Cops for Help

crying babyNeed a good laugh today? (C'mon, we all do.) I couldn't help but crack a smile after hearing about a dad in Germany who called the cops for help because his babies wouldn't stop crying.

Yes, this really happened.

The poor dude was home alone caring for his twin 5-month-olds and a 2-year-old, and when he couldn't get his wife on the phone to help, and was unable to stop the kiddos from crying on his own -- he broke down and called the police out of pure desperation.

(OMG. Are you loving this story, or what?)

Wait, it gets better.

Instead of hanging up on him or getting all bent out of shape that he was wasting their time over crying babies, the cops actually listened to him, and even offered some tips for how to deal with the situation. (Aww!)

Um, this is seriously one of the funniest things I've ever heard! I wish I could've been a fly on the wall in that house when he made the call, because you know those babies must have been really wailing if he felt the need to get the police involved.

I left my husband alone with our son countless times when he was an infant, and luckily, I never got a panicked phone call from him, and to my knowledge, he never called anyone else for assistance either.

But I do recall one time when I was away on an overnight trip, he admitted putting our son to bed an hour or two earlier than normal. I never really said anything to him about it, but I'm assuming he'd had enough and figured ending the day early would save him a little bit of sanity.

Oh well, at least I didn't come home and find a police cruiser in my driveway.

Has your husband ever called you or anyone else for help with the baby?

The author of this is a moron for thinking this is funny. If more overwhelmed parents called for help there would be a lot less incidents of horrific child abuse and death. Instead of laughing at this man for doing the right thing, the author should be praising him and promoting this as a good thing.

I think it's awesome.  Bless his heart, at least he reached out to someone for help instead of just losing it and hurting the little ones.

I don't think this is funny at all. I'm glad he turned somewhere for help instead of snapping.

i've never called 911 before, but i'm glad to hear a parent trying to get help when he feels like the crying is more than he can bear instead of hurting his babies. and good for the police for helping him through it.

He made a great choice! Cops would rather talk you through it than arrest you for accidently killing your child.

Rather people get help then hurt them.
