Meet Ben Sowards.

The Utah father is receiving online praise for the most amazing response to hearing about his daughter Valerie’s bathroom accident at school. On Friday, Sowards got a call from his wife who told him that their 6-year-old was crying and needed to be picked up.

The dad-of-eleven says: “Honestly, I knew she was mortified, but I thought if I could make her laugh everything would be fine.” So, he decided to splash some water on his pants and let his daughter know that she wasn’t alone.

When Sowards showed up at Valerie’s school, he asked for her backpack to cover up his own ‘accident.’ He explains: “She was totally exasperated. But, once she saw my pants, I got that look from her where I knew everything was OK. All dads know what look I’m talking about. And we just strolled out of the school like nothing was happening.”

Sowards’ 17-year-old daughter, Lucinda, took a few photos of her dad and younger sister and shared them on Twitter. Her post went viral quickly: it has been retweeted more than 62,000 times and garnered over 254,000 likes since April 14!

Lucinda says it’s in her dad’s nature to use humor whenever one of his children is having a difficult time. She explains: “I got a massive black eye and he FaceTimed me and had vividly painted a black eye that matched mine on himself.”

If that’s not love, then we don’t know what is!
