It's a wanting to have their cake and eat it too. The result being an underwhelming flavorless cake. Which now I think about it bothers me because it feels like they contradicted Donald's behavior with the boys. This is the swell dad who showed off baby photos to Gabby where he beamed with pride of his boys and documented every milestone he could. Della hasn't seen her kids in a decade and missed out on every single First Moment parents cherish and has a chance to see Huey's graduation ceremony for an organization she's still part of and potentially of the same, or lower, rank. Scrooge presumably has been around when the JWC was hardcore on the frontiers of America and could grump about the good old days.
Buff dad and Scrawny dad could've played off this family of legends in how normal they were. >oh you fought monsters and ancient evils>this one time Violet brought a dead animal to use in a necromancy ritual for show and tell>you've been around the world in planes, subs, and wildlife?>we've been trying to teach Lena here how to drive around the block in our old car
The end message being fags and the mish mash of uncles and single-mom both love and support their children, wanting nothing but the best.
