Dads can be awesome. This dad in particular made something really cool for his daughter. Namely, he was asked to collect his 6-year old daughter Valerie from school after her bathroom accident. To support her – he showed up with his pants being wet.

My little sis had an accident today at kindergarten & this is how my dad left to pick her up so she wouldn’t feel so sad / embarrassed.
He told Fox News that he was heartbroken after hearing about his daughter’s embarrassing situation at school, so he decided to do something. He splashed water on his pants before leaving the house.
He arrived at the school’s front office, and asked Valerie to borrow him the backpack, so he can cover up his own “accident”.
Lucinda, Valerie’s older sister, captured a picture of her father and tweeted about the situation. Her tweet went viral.
For a report for Fox 13, Lucinda, who is the oldest of the family’s 11 children, told the TV that the Sowards are passionate advocates for foster care. She also told a similar story where her father FaceTimed her with a painted-on black eye to match hers after she fell ice-skating and her eye was swelled.
Lucinda’s original tweet about Soward’s pants-wetting has been retweeted more than 62,000 times and has garnered more than 253,000 likes.
