Dads don’t always receive the recognition they deserve when it comes to entertaining and caring for their children. The sad truth is that mothers often play the dominant role in parenting, or so we presume. This generalization hampers good fathers’ worth and involvement as parents, sometimes even making them feel left out and underappreciated.
Fortunately, one mother by the name of Rugeana decided to hit the ‘record’ button on her camera after she took off for a bit, leaving her husband alone to watch their two young children. Mom’s initial goal wasn’t to “spy” on her husband’s capabilities to parent alone, but rather to provide some adorable footage of her two girls for their grandma who couldn’t be there to watch. It was a simple yet sweet way to keep Grandma in-the-know of what her grandchildren were up to.
In the footage, Katy Perry’s “E.T.” lyric video is on TV with their baby girl happily jumping in a baby bouncer and their older daughter playing with a pair of pom-poms. Once Daddy sets down a box and walks into the room for a brief movement, we are left laughing and wiping happy tears from our eyes.
The father begins lip-syncing to Katy Perry’s song, performing crazy dance moves, and even making silly faces to his adorable toddler. The girls’ faces are entirely lit up. The eldest daughter passes her pom-poms to dad, and at this point, we get enough! If this man isn’t the cutest with kids, I don’t know who is!
In a confusing world that appears at times to be driven by fear and hate, it’s always enlightening to see something so positive, making us feel at peace.
