Parenting is like a rollercoaster. And at times, the unexpected nature of your child’s questions or requests might catch you off guard. But the truth is, we would move mountains to get the best for our kids, even if that means a dad getting a sleeve of temporary tattoos (that he has to wear all day) or a tough guy having his toenails painted pink by his daughter.
The Bright Side team has found a wide range of parents who’ve experienced some smart or sweet moments with their children.
1. This dad was a proud first client at his daughters’ salon.
2. You have to use smart tricks to get your child to eat oatmeal, like disguising it in a banana.
3. He got a tattoo to match his son’s life-saving heart surgery scar.
4. Even when you’re 40 years old, mom will continue sending handmade presents.
