You’d give anything for your child if you could. There is no such thing as an impossible problem, a pointless cause, or an insurmountable obstacle.
Why? Because as a parent, the last thing you want is for your child to be afraid, sad, or lonely.
Ben Sowards, a parent from Utah, USA, received a call from his 6-year-old daughter and immediately realized he needed to see her at school.
As it turned out, Valeria had a small “accident”. Nothing too serious, but Ben could imagine his daughter’s embarrassment at having soiled her trousers.
Ben had a thought before going to pick up his daughter. He knew there had to be a way to make his daughter’s scenario a little less unpleasant, so he set out to make her laugh.
According to the Huffington Post, Ben poured water on his pants before driving to school.
When he got there, he asked Valerie if he might use her book bag to ‘hide’ something.
When Valerie noticed the enormous wet smear on her father’s crotch, she finally understood what he was up to.
As if nothing happened
Seeing that her father was going through the ‘same accident’ made everything better for Valeria.
“Honestly, I knew she was mortified, but I thought if I could make her laugh everything would be fine,” Sowards said.
“She was totally exasperated. But, once she saw my pants, I got that look from her where I knew everything was OK. All dads know what look I’m talking about. And we just strolled out of the school like nothing was happening.”
Ben could easily pick up his kid from school by simply driving there. However, he went to this extent to spare her embarrassment. What a great parent he is!
There are many great fathers in the world, but few who are as creative as Ben is.
