6. Best Coming Out Story Ever
Coming out to your parents when you’re a teen can be horrifying. Even though your parents love you, it’s not the easiest topic to bring up at the dinner table. But one dad had overheard his boy making plans to come out to the family, and he wanted to make things easier by writing a letter that instantly went viral. The letter read: “I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me. The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now. I’ve known you were gay since you were six, I’ve loved you since you were born. P.S. Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.”
7. Far, Far Away… Deep In Space
In lieu of a fort made of blankets, this little guy has a spaceship, which was designed by his old man. Daniel Sherrouse, a blogger for All We Have Is Gravity, created a spaceship simulator for Noah, his one-year-old son. Now, this toddler can set a course and let his imagination take him wherever he wants to go. Sherrouse wrote what he hoped this project would do for his child. “I hope that it inspires him to have a life-long love of science and wonder.”
8. On The Road Again
Joselyn, 9, told her dad, Trent McCain, that her doll “Abbie” wanted to go trucking with him. Since Joselyn considered McCain to be Abbie’s “grandfather,” he was happy to honor the request and take the doll along. “We decided to have a little fun and post pictures of our travels,” McCain shared on his company’s Facebook page. “I didn’t want Joselyn thinking I threw Abbie in the sleeper and forgot about her.” Now, this is something that Joselyn will always remember about her dad!
9. You Be Elsa
Someone took a photo of Rob Chillingworth and his daughter, Ruby, who were riding the subway. Ruby was headed to a party and was dressed as Olaf the snowman. But Chillingworth, who’s into heavy metal and owns a tattoo shop wore a cape and a blue sparkly dress just like Elsa from Frozen. “The kids had to dress up. I thought I had to as well,” he explained. “Ruby said ‘you be Elsa.’ I had to get the dress made as I’m a big geezer and you can’t get them in my size.” What a cool dad, but he’s totally changed how we see Elsa!
