More like Grandad

[–]pontn 1390 points1391 points  (109 children)

Grandparents are awesome, they spoil their grandkids maybe because they miss their kids as a child.

[–]Schackles 885 points886 points  (71 children)

I feel like it’s more of, “let’s get them as excited as possible, because we know we get to send them back when the day is over.”

[–]Albatraous 482 points483 points  (58 children)

Tire them out, so they sleep well and give the parents a break in the evening

[–]luxitania 102 points103 points  (46 children)

Then what are all the sugary snacks for? Grandma sneaking sedative into her cookie recipe?

[–]Albatraous 91 points92 points  (39 children)

Sugar high, then they crash after

[–]Ceilani 52 points53 points  (22 children)

Can confirm. Husband gave our toddler daughter 2 bites of a Reece’s cup.

The crash was real.

[–]letmeseem 13 points14 points  (14 children)

None og those things are real

[–]Bashfullylascivious 14 points15 points  (10 children)

Yeah, I saw that study too, but anyone who is anyone who has kids knows... You don't mention it to the child, you hand them some real sugar treats, not extra garbage cornsyrup treats, and if it's enough, you watch what is the equivalent of a drug overdose.

They bounce off walls, they scream, they become manic. In some cases they are tripping too hard and become emotional. Then the crash so hard that you think to yourself, I wish I could sleep like that.

Even if you aren't a kid, you can quietly do the same thing. Stuff yourself full of sugar and 15-30 mins later, you're falling asleep in your chair. Food doesn't do the same thing unless you eat a giant meal.

One of the ways you can figure out if you're pre-diabetic (or even worse, diabetic) is if you, on an empty stomach, consume a small sugary treat and find yourself ridiculously tired with possibly a headache. It's your body's inability to process sugar and deal with insulin.

[–]Chimpbot 8 points9 points  (7 children)

They act that way because they're excited because of the treat.

The "sugar rush" simply doesn't exist. Sugar crashes, however, are a thing.

[–]Bashfullylascivious 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Funny, because my kids don't get manic when I give them stickers or even toys as a treat. It almost seems like they react to the rise in blood sugar levels, like in food, but in concentrated, filtered purified sugar form.

Nah. Selfish grandparent bullshit. Wants to see the kids happy happy happy and not have to deal with saying "no, you can't have cookies before dinner"

[–]hopesfallyn 4 points5 points  (2 children)

My mother is here for the weekend and keeps being surprised when I don't allow her to give my barely 2 year old cookies before 10 in the morning. Like....on what earth is that okay? And then the passive aggressive "well mommy said no, Nana can't give you that cookie" UGH

[–]quantum-mechanic 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]ArtThouLoggedIn 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It’s all good, you don’t realize the complexity of it all when your innocent and pure growing up. It’s just now as an adult approaching 30 soon with friends from service and uni that I hang / keep up with all have stellar fams, where as I have no contest. Now after losing my job because of Covid; it’s been quite hard because I have so much time to get lost in my head.

[–]FizzBitch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

HA more like amp them up so they never come down.

[–]ScoutAames 3 points4 points  (3 children)

This is actually my experience! Granted I have a naturally low key kid so it doesn’t take much to tire her out, but we LOVE when she goes to her hyper grandparents’ and comes home ready for bed an hour early.

Also, people talking about sugar...maybe just deliver clear expectations about your kid’s diet? We don’t do sugar except for fruit. So her grandparents don’t either.

[–]jageanke 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Absolutely this. Kids you give back are the best kids.

[–]WalnutScorpion 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Is there such a thing as rent-a-kid?

[–]beneye 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It’s genuine happiness for grandparents to have grandkids over. Same way you feel with your nieces and nephews (well, if you don’t have kids). I’m 40 no kids yet and I have no problem racing with my nie-phews? Sibkids? There need to be one name for nieces and nephews. I like sibkids

[–]wango288 71 points72 points  (1 child)

My father was a very strict guy. Not much fun to be around him really. I guess that being raised in a post war environment took a toll.

When my first son was born he approached me and said "I have raised you strictly, now is my turn to enjoy my grandson. Your duty is to educate him well, mine is to spoil him." I guess he had a point. Never seen my old man so happy. He deserved it.

[–]hairbrushthreepwood 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I wish my parents had a little more of this attitude. They think they need to “parent” my kids, and it makes it harder for my kids to love them. Unless the grandparent is around all the time, it can be really uncomfortable for the kid to have a less-familiar adult trying to discipline them. The spoily relationship almost seems like the more natural one, in that regard!

[–]davidjoho 29 points30 points  (8 children)

Grandad here. And while being with our young grandchildren does bring back memories of our own children, I think it's much more deeply biological than that. Being with them I can just about literally feel dopamine being squeezed out of my brain into my heart.

After a few months of isolation, we started seeing the grandkids again. My wife and I are rational people who fully believe in science, and we have been following the guidelines for elderly people. Except for this, even knowing that seeing the grandkids carries significant risk. Rationally we know we should not do it. But we continue to. The biological, emotional bond is just overwhelming.

I wish I could explain to you the profound joy of being with our grandchildren, but since I can't I will only hope that you all get to experience it yourselves.

[–]me2269vu 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Great answer. I think it’s an evolutionary thing. We have a biological urge to support grandchildren because they are carrying 25% of your genetic material. Considering evolution from the gene’s perspective, it makes sense to support your grandchildren as they’re the only way your genes get passed on.

[–]trcomajo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I never had any grandparents...this makes me so excited to be one!

[–]skyactive 14 points15 points  (1 child)

They also have time and money

[–]Combo_of_Letters 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I think this is correct based on how I have seen other grandparents act. My parents have continued on with not wanting anything to do with us.

[–]KJting98 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And it is their 'secoond chance' after having tons of life experience and want to set things straight this round.

[–]plutonium-239 7 points8 points  (3 children)

In Italy we say that “grandma is the mom with sugar”.

[–]squalorparlor 4 points5 points  (2 children)

[–]gezzus7128 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Most of our parents missed out on our childhoods working OT most of their lives. Grand children is their reward for their hardwork.

[–]NameIdeas 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Many grandparents are retired or in a place in their career where they have more disposable income (in my circles at least...I know not everywhere).

The type of grandparent who has disposable income and/or more time has the opportunity to build things like this

It is their grandfather. This video was posted like a bazillion years ago. Those kids probably can drive by now.

[–]BakedPlatypus 1478 points1479 points  (112 children)

Don’t get me wrong this is amazing but I feel like the sad reality is he spent countless hours on that and those kids are gonna get bored of it within a couple months

[–]mattKBV 94 points95 points  (1 child)

And they have a video. Which is worth a lot to them.

[–]K_Jayhawker_U 86 points87 points  (1 child)

And can you imagine when those kids are in their twenties and they’ll look back and think “Grandpa built us a fucking rollercoaster!” Pretty cool!

[–]23Heart23 76 points77 points  (0 children)

Yeah he wanted to build it. They’ll use it in the first couple weeks of summer every year until they get too big.

[–]SeaGroomer 20 points21 points  (0 children)

If this is the one I'm thinking of, he is a retired Boeing engineer and yes he had a great time building it. I think there are news stories about it.

[–]Urseye 104 points105 points  (7 children)

Look on the bright side: maybe he lures new children to the woods to play with it everyday.

I feel like you go into these huge projects knowing that, hopefully at least

[–]Willfishforfree 33 points34 points  (5 children)

I mean i built bike ramps that got used a handful of times before being reused or retired due to damage. Many were built just for a day or twos worth of fun before needing to he uninstalled. I mean I've even spent more time working on slingshot targets that get destroyed in a matter of minutes so the idea of putting in a lot of time and effort into work for a few minutes or hours of enjoyment isn't really that alien to me.

I think if you think about fun by the time it takes to make that fun happen as a cost benefit equation you sacrifice the fun you could have had. Many people spend months or even years preparing for a wedding event or holiday that lasts a few hours to a few weeks. And people never say they spent a week making that ornate cake only for people to look at it and eat it in one night.

[–]anotherbigbrotherbob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolutely! I do reale state rentals. I put in a ton of hours fixing up a place and getting it ready to rent. I enjoy it. Then it takes only a few minutes to give someone the keys. It's all worth it. It's the journey, not just the destination.

[–]AssertiveInTraining 24 points25 points  (0 children)

It's not sad. The grandpa did this in part so that their grandchildren had some fun, but in a much bigger part because he wanted to and had the time to. I'm sure he'll be supper happy with the results even when everyone gets bored.

[–]chomdh 18 points19 points  (0 children)

It’s ok I’m sure he had a fun time building it.

[–]KomitoDnB 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Even if they had 10 seconds of pure happiness where nothing else in the world mattered, it's worth it.

We spend so much time to prepare and cook food, only to eat it within minutes.

To spend a few weeks building something that provides hours of fun, worth it, plus the materials can be recycled and used for something else :)

[–]jessamin_hudson 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My dad was a chef, and I would get so upset seeing customers at his restaurant eat so fast when I saw the work he put in. It used to make me sad. But as an adult, I understand that it gave him joy to feed people. It was worth it to him because people loved his food, and he wanted them to have the best.

[–]WalnutScorpion 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It's luckily actually the contrary! Here's a video about the brain behind this rollercoaster.

[–]xplrr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

^ ^ This should be higher ^^

[–]letsmakethiswall 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I agree however what he has done will stick with them forever like they will never forget the time there dad or grandad literly built them a roller coaster

[–]blak000 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This. As children, they may get bored of it quickly. As adults, they’ll remember the work their granddad out in to make something special for them. It’s something that will stick with them forever and be a constant reminder of their grandfather’s love for them.

[–]Arkaium 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Or even if they physically or emotionally outgrow it in a short period of time, it’s something they think back on fondly for the rest of their lives. Do we sit around thinking about the pantheon of things we did as kids? For most people, we remember some specific things. This looks like a blast.

[–]DAMN-IT-FLAMINGO 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You're right, but I guess after really thinking about this... Does it matter? The attention span of a kid is small and they bounce from thought to thought. But if a toy brought them even an hour of joy, isn't that nice?

I wonder if this is just the way that an adult thinks - we spend money on something, so we want to see it used down to the bone. Or we cook something, so we want to see that plate licked clean. Anything less and we feel our efforts aren't fully appreciated.

Trust me, I also get annoyed when I see a kid's room full of toys that they got over really fast. But if that toy taught them something, or brought an hour of joy... Maybe that's OK!

[–]sunrise98 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Do you smile every day at work? No. You work so you can enjoy your other time more - the fleeting smiles still make the countless hours worth it.

[–]Administrative-Ad658 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Theyll be talking about it for the rest of their lives though

[–]ASouthernBoy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's rather pessimistic worldview and a lot of assumptions of how a man on the internet will feel.

The reality , for anyone who had built anything in their life , is, that the sole completion of the project gives you long lasting sense of accomplishment.

To banalize it: " it works!"

[–]colundricality 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But he built this as much for himself as for the kid. Not to play on, but just because it's awesome.

[–]internet_humor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Psssshhh..... Hold my beer"

[–]smilesdavis8d 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Think about a young child and a slide that’s not even as tall as you. If a kid can play on a small slide in the backyard for years - I’m sure they’d appreciate this for a long time.

[–]MarshieMon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kids are pretty weird. They might get bored after a month of two, but then maybe a couple more months later, they suddenly will remember that toy (or in this case, rollercoaster) and play with it again

[–]bertcox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I did a 300' zipline for my kids, they have maybe rode it 20 times in the last year.

[–]gmunoz14 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He should donate it to a local park for it to be enjoyed forever

[–]iamintheforest 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He spent less time than the kids will get enjoyment. Add to that the leave behind of love, caring and time-spent-together. Add to the that the fact he probably loved the thought of 1 minute of them seeing it during every minute he was building it.

If you make 3 months of awesomeness for a kid you've made a very notable percentage of their childhood awesome. Being a kid is a short period of time, being a grandparent who gets to spent a lot of time with your grandkid is an even shorter time. I can't think of anything that would be more satisfying than a couple of months. Massive accomplishment, great memories and joyful time creating.

[–]xdraque 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think the grand pop is winning more than most. Example, my father in law got his mind set to building a putt putt golf course in our backyard.

My two children have used it like 1 time each in the last 3 years. But their grandfather gets to carry the memory of building a golf course for his beloved grandchildren for the rest of his life.

[–]dudemanbroguysirplz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They’ll outgrow the ride, but they’ll never outgrow the memory.

[–]IWasAuto 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw this somewhere before. This guys has a business for building these in people’s back yards. Sorry for not providing the source i dont have it

[–]ollimann 1 point2 points  (5 children)

by that logic it's not worth doing anything and that is just a sad way of thinking

[–]FiveBookSet 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Well no, by his logic you should just do something more time/cost efficient.

[–]Spiritual_Ad_7692 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You are looking at this wrong. The concern is that the children would get bored of this quickly. If we strap them in the carts for as long as it took to build the coaster then they will be forced to appreciate the work put into it.

[–]FiveBookSet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The coaster will continue until morale improves!

[–]ollimann 1 point2 points  (1 child)

you cant judge it like that for doing something for someone else you love. even if spends a 1000hrs and the kids love it for a while it might be worth it for him

[–]OnePieceTime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But people on Reddit can enjoy it for years!

[–]Jam_Dev 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's probably true but projects like this can be a lot of fun if you are interested in engineering, definitely worse ways to spend your retirement than building a backyard roller coaster.

[–]orchidrocketman337 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The only reason a kid stops enjoying this is if an adult isn’t around to help push anymore.

The adult gets tired of this before the kid would.

[–]Pennypacking 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This video will last the rest of his life. I'd bet he's happy with it. Plus, if they do get tired, he gets half of his yard back.

[–]The-Sofa-King 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You sound like you were an ungrateful kid

[–]Allroy_66 552 points553 points  (13 children)

People look at this and probably think building the Rollercoaster was the hard part. People with kids know that standing there and pushing them up that hill 60 times, until your arms are just too tired to do it one more time, then dealing with your kids crying for 20 minutes because they weren't done, is the real work here.

[–]meggywoo709 97 points98 points  (3 children)

Was thinking this too. After 3 minutes of pushing my kids on a swing I’m completely finished. Haha

[–]Allroy_66 78 points79 points  (2 children)

A great dad builds his kids a Rollercoaster, a smart dad puts a motor on the big hill so he can sit down in the middle of it and relax for an hour.

[–]meggywoo709 16 points17 points  (0 children)

And also a coffee machine built into it.

[–]wings31 20 points21 points  (3 children)

And then playing with it for 20min and never again after you spent 100 hours making it.

[–]Zadricl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The joy is in the journey brother

[–]Art_drunk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don’t know about that. This isn’t some toy or video game that everyone has. These kids have their own roller coaster. If I had that as a kid, I’d be asking my parents for us to have parties so my friends could ride it too. My siblings and I would rule the playground with our awesomeness.

Sure they probably wouldn’t use it every day as I doubt the parents could, but still, it’s an amazing gift. Besides dad or grandad is getting a workout which is no bad thing

[–]san_yago 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Haha first thing I thought about was my poor dad's back after squat-running while pushing me around in a bike for whole afternoons.

What a royal POS. I used to sell drugs, many years ago. I had a customer try to trade a brand new gaming system right after christmas for some. I just knew that was his girlfriend's kids Christmas present, so I drove straight to her place of work and showed her the texts from him. Sure enough, the console belonged to her children, and she was extremely upset. They broke up a little while later. I hope he left her and her family alone after all that.

[–]Itscompanypolicyman 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I’m glad mom wasn’t in on it; mine was. You probably single handedly saved those children’s sense of trust and they don’t even know your name. I work with plastic, so I’m indirectly poisoning the planet so I can’t really tell you you’re awful for dealing, huh? I wouldn’t have anyway, willing adults do willing adult things.

[–]Eris_the_Fair 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't do it anymore. I was actually in an abusive relationship and being coerced to deal, and it gives me a lot of anxiety and shame to recall experiences like I mentioned earlier. I teared up a little thinking how I might have helped kids I never met, because I worry I made other families worse off. All I knew is I was helping out a fellow woman, because if my boyfriend did the same, I would hope someone would tell me. (He did, in fact, do the same. He moved to hard drugs like heroin, and none of my friends told me or helped me like I had done for that complete stranger.) For the record, I'm not longer with my ex, no one coerces me to do anything, and I definitely do NOT deal drugs anymore. Don't be hard on yourself for your job, we are all cogs in the machine from time to time. At least you're not selling drugs to deadbeat parasites.

I think he literally means around the outside of the house

[–]Jaydenmou 37 points38 points  (9 children)

I dunno... seems like he’s just taking his time.

[–]oWAZHOPE 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Hahahaha...... laughed like 5 minutes after reading this comment.

I love this joke. I worked as a line cook in my teens and early 20's. One afternoon we had an order come in from the bar for a Ruben sandwich which has Thousand Island (aka Russian) dressing. Bar tender forgot to make the ticket say "no Russian" so he called it in over the intercom. My coworker replied "don't worry we'll take our time". They went back and forth a few times before the bartender finally got the joke.

I had a hose and leaky sprinkler in my backyard, and they were a seasons-pass to fun. I can only imagine how much fun these kids are having with their own rollercoaster.

[–]plantsandplants 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Problem is, kids get so bored of novelty things like this easily. I hope it was fun to build because they probably won’t want to do it every day.

That's when you send them backwards!

My friends brother build a roller coaster in their yard - it was amazing; we had so much fun on it. He’s a millionaire today 😂

[–]MarmotsGoneWild 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My son would just cry and try to climb out but, only after it's at full speed

[–]abecido 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'd use it as a Large Children Collider and conduct some experiments.

[–]bagsinmysocks 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You don’t see the end of the rollercoaster where it dumps them into lava tho.

[–]nemoknows 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s not how it works at all, here’s the real video.

[–]YouTakeTheM00n 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Everybody gangsta till dad puts on turbo mode

[–]Substantialspinach5 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Be honest

How many of you would't trust your dad for shit and would be scared af

I'm curious

[–]HorseBoxGuy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

For the fourth year running?

[–]rebelolemiss 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah. I’ve seen this at least 5 times in the last few years. That kid probably graduated high school by now.

[–]patrdesch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More like dad of ten years ago.

[–]GunsmokeG 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I built this thing and by God, you're going to ride it!

[–]KDKDragon 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]aioliole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely not of this year. This is old AF and reposted stop many times

[–]freshremake 2 points3 points  (3 children)

How did he bend those like that.

[–]IWTLEverything 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I think I saw a video about this. There might even be a website about backyard roller coasters. They fill the pvc with hot sand so that it maintains its shape but is heated and can be bent in they way they want

My back hurts just watching that.

[–]Jadel210 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Search “homemade roller coasters” on YouTube. It’s just endlessly rewarding

[–]polyesterjellyfish 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think he's Dad of Last Year

[–]OdoWanKenobi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does this count as a credit?

[–]n-crispy7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s their grandfather I’m pretty sure.
