19 Sincere Photos That Show the Ups and Downs of Being a Single Father

Many people believe that mothers are more involved in their children’s upbringing. However, it’s only a stereotype. There are many fathers in this world who have to bring up their children alone. But they don’t give up and always do their best to play both roles of a father and a mother. They braid their daughters’ hair, help them paint their nails and shave their legs, and they even bake and wrap presents.

At Bright Side, we were really impressed by the touching stories single dads shared on the Internet, and we want to share the best stories with you.

“I’m a single dad of 2 daughters. My oldest daughter wanted a gross-out themed birthday, so I made my first ever cake. She loved it!”

“It’s not always easy being a single dad but sometimes I get to experience some things other dads might not.”

“My son wants to be a firefighter. So I built him a fire truck bed.”

“It isn’t easy to be a single dad. These are the little things that they’ll remember.”

“I’m slowly figuring out this single dad thing.”

While some other single dads master this skill on new levels...

If you have daughters, you need to learn how to paint nails too...

...or your nails will be painted.

“As a single father, my greatest joy in life is this little mini-me right here. Here’s one for all the responsible single dads out there: your children are blessed to have you. Keep up and stay strong.”

“My daughter said that it’s time to make us beautiful.”

“My first Halloween as a single dad”

“These were supposed to be Minnie Mouse blueberry pancakes.”

“My son’s pop warner team won the local super bowl, so I asked him how he wanted to celebrate and he said fishing without a second of hesitation. As a single dad, I was happy.”

“My daughter asked when I’d teach her how to shave her legs. Well, today was the day...”

“As a single dad, this pretty much sums up my life right now.”

First attempts of a single dad to make a Spider-man cake

Sometimes you just need to find a way.

“A tooth fairy visited my son last night.”

Bonus: why men’s rooms need real changing tables too.

These are all so great! When I was a kid my dad and I would have this special thing where every saturday morning we would look at pictures of cute animals. If he ever forgot or couldn't do it he would get me cherry gummies and we would share them the next time we looked at cute animals.

My father is a teacher and he is rather strict person, I don't remember playing with him so much, going to the playground or so. But he always gave me good advice, listened to my thoughts, and helped to understand my feelings better.

These fathers are great! Parenthood is not easy for both parents, but for one it's even harder. But they have totally nailed it

My father spent a lot of time with me when I was a child. Sometimes, even more than my mom. I was a real dad's little princess :)
