20+ Fathers Who Are Cooler Than Any Superhero in Their Kids’ Eyes

When a man becomes a father, he instantly gets the title of a superhero. Saving toys from a couch monster? Easy as a pie. Want to become the most important client of a beauty salon started by your small daughter? Why not? Need to create the best robot for your son? Not an issue. Oftentimes, it seems that fathers can do anything. No matter how many difficult tasks fall in your lap, fathers can solve any of them and more. That’s because superheroes are full of energy and they don’t ever have time to relax.

We at Bright Side always admire the warm and tender attention fathers give their kids. And while men may seem stingy with their emotions, this rule typically doesn’t apply to fathers.

“Went fishing with the little guy. He hasn’t stopped talking about it. He’ll tell anyone that will listen. I love seeing him that excited.”

“My girls opened up a salon.”

“The kids were playing police and I was ’the bad guy’ when they caught me so my son put me ’under a rest.’”

When love and pain go together

“My dad drove 41 miles to buy this and then shipped it with 5 pounds of nuts. Never stop being silly with your kids, even when they’re grown.”

“She fell asleep snuggling with me on the couch and I think I’ll just stay here.”

“I built a playhouse for my daughter. She loves it.”

“The popsicle was too cold but Dad’s genius idea saved the day.”

“My shoulders and arms hurt and I’ve discovered new back muscles. Was it worth it? Oh, yeah!!”

Nothing special, just a father and his boy having dinner...

“My father made it for me as a high school graduation gift.”

“I knew my big nose would come in handy some day.”

“She held my hand while we watched TV and I melted.”

“When your 3-year-old has a fever and can’t go to daycare”

“Dad 3D-printed me a Pokemon chess set. Finished painting it and my old board today.”

“Well, guess I’m stuck here forever...again.”

“Took my 3 buddies for a walk and learned that I’m the only one willing to walk the whole way.”

“Made these for my son!”

“I turned my son’s wheelchair into a digger for Halloween!”

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

“Don’t be jealous fellas, but my 3-year-old made me car soup today. 10/10 would order again!”

“When I was 5, I was picking up grass for cooking my ’mud soup’ and found a 4-leaf clover. I dried it and presented it to my dad for the memory.”

  • 22 years later he gave it to me at my wedding and said that my mascot was helping him in tough times. I was crying..."
