A dad came up with a clever way to keep his toddler busy so that he could watch the big soccer game.
Hannes Coudenys is a Belgian dad with 422,000 TikTok followers. He and his wife Deborah share their adventures with their son Rae Morris and baby girl Alma, who both happen to be adopted.
And like just about every dad on Earth, Coudenys brings his sense of humor to fatherhood.
One day, Coudenys invited his guy friends over to watch a soccer game on a laptop. To keep his son distracted, Coudenys came up with a genius idea — and now, the hilarious video has received over 200,000 views on TikTok.
“Hem doen geloven dat hij de match speel,” the dad wrote in Belgian, which roughly translates to: “Make him believe he’s playing the match.”
The group of men huddled around the laptop to watch the match. Meanwhile, Coudenys handed Rae his phone with a photo of a video game controller.
Little Rae pressed the buttons on the fake controller. His dad totally convinced him that he was playing a soccer video game.
Now, that’s one way to tap into your kid’s imagination!
