When you’re six years old, you’ll do anything you can to act like you’re older. It’s that sweet stage where you’re still very much a child, so it’s still cute when you try to do “adult-like” things.
Nothing can bring those mature aspirations down quicker than wetting your pants.
No one knows this better than Valerie Sowards. The kindergartner had herself a little accident at school last week. Lucky for this little girl, her daddy knew just how to save the day.
Ben Sowards got a call from his wife about Valerie’s accident. She told him that their daughter was in the office at school, crying, and begging her mom to go home.
“My heart kind of just broke,” he said.
So like any dad would, Ben rushed to the school to get his crying little girl, but not before going out of his way to try to make her feel better.
This dad of the year soaked the front of his pants with some water, as so to appear that he too, had wet his pants!
Then he quietly stepped into the school office and asked Valerie if he could borrow her backpack to cover up his own little “accident.”
“She looked at me with just the biggest incredulity,” he said.
His plan worked! And soon the two were laughing together as Valerie wrapped her arms around her daddy.
