Look familiar? It did to a lot of other people, too. The thread quickly filled up with people whose dads cannot seem to text in complete sentences. They would rather talk on the phone, OK? What is it with kids and all this texting? Read more…

Not even mother nature can come between a child and their new toy.
One dedicated dad in Alaska was forced to brave a formidable sheet of ice on the family’s driveway in order to bring his three-year-old a toy kitchen she’d been looking forward to getting for quite some time.
After a bunch of freezing rain fell on their small town outside of Anchorage, everything was covered in a thick layer of ice — including little Adalynn’s new toy that was in the back of the family’s truck.
