A Utah dad earned the title of “Best Dad Ever” this week after reacting to his daughter wetting her pants at school in the most adorable way. 

The Huffington Post reports that dad Ben Sowards saved the day last Friday when he picked up daughter Valerie, who had an “accident” at school,” in his own pair of damp pants. “Honestly, I knew she was mortified, but I thought if I could make her laugh everything would be fine,” Sowards explains. 


Valerie was reportedly waiting for her dad in the principal’s office when he quietly came in and asked to borrow Valerie’s book bag--so he could hide his own “accident.” When the two got home, Sowards’ 17-year-old daughter took a few photos of them and shared them online. The pictures have since received more than 253,000 likes and 62,000 retweets.
