For the past few years, Ben Sowards and his wife have been raising seven children. He tries to get on their level.
"Your very first foundational principle has to be you love your children unconditionally," he said.
But last week, he went a step further for his 6-year-old daughter, Valerie. He said he and his wife received a call that she'd had an accident at school.
"She was heartbroken and so my heart just kind of melted," he said.
Sowards couldn't let his daughter feel all alone, so he made a slight change to his outfit by splashing water on his pants. His daughter Lucinda tweeted out the photos of her dad with a wet stain on his pants.
My little sis had an accident today at kindergarten & this is how my dad left to pick her up so she wouldn't feel so sad/embarrassed 😂😂❤️ pic.twitter.com/veHMFO4QHr— Lucinda Sowards (@LucindaSowards) April 14, 2017
The tweet ended up going far beyond just her friends. It has more than 63,000 retweets and 250,000 likes.
