They had us in the first half not gonna lie
It's a little embarrassing how long it took me to realize what this video was saying.
I did have to think more than twice.. after, I was like “OOOOH”
voila! I drew your comment into art
That is indeed the okayest design I've seen today!
Got me. Really thought that would be a fun subreddit to follow
Wow someone made that subreddit already
The speed at which reddit mobilizes is crazy
Why do I keep seeing you everywhere?? I love It
The moment I pressed the link my brain went "this is a Rick role" And then it wasn't
I got it before even before seeing the kid. I've been there. She's 15 now and I love her to death
yeah I thought at first it was going to be the whole "my dog/cat stole my S/O" meme but this made more sense when I started seeing the baby.
Very lovely tho.
also needs to have a follow up in a decade or two for when she gets married they can show this at the wedding and see her reaction, because happy crying is wholesome to watch.
I thought to myself first, "wait what?!" Then I realized this sub reddit is mademesmile, and I knew what it was going to be
Yeah I thought it was going to be a transition video, turns out it was a baby video
Exactly... And happy cake day!
Happy cake day
Yeah to be honest I thought it was going to be the guy transitioning to a female. You never know. That would have been touching too. But this just got me in the feels when I saw the baby. I hope I look that happy with my lil girl. She is my light.
Ok, but is that or is that not Emma Watson?
I want that.
Well, that kid already belongs to somebody.
Nothing a little abduction can't solve
Good luck trying to abduct that girl from that beast of a man!
I'd let him abduct me.
you fucking heard her.
Go get you some homie.
Same. But I'm not ready yet. Hopefully in a few years, when I'm more established and comfortable with who I am as an individual first.
Thank you, I needed to hear this honestly
You're welcome :) Don't worry, you'll find your special someone when the time is right!
Oh God. The look of love in his eyes for both of them. He seems like such a good, loving human
I'm not crying... it's just raining...on my face
Currently pregnant and absolutely bawling right now.
There is no shame. There is only hormones.
I’m not crying cause I’m sad, I’ve just been cutting onions, I’m making a lasagna... for one :’(
For your information there's an inflammation in my tear gland
Damn those Reddit onion ninjas!!
Actually, I was expecting it to be a puppy. This was way sweeter.
Raining entirely located within the confines of your face.
I’ve had to spend a few months away from my daughter and still have 3 more more months to go. This post definitely brought some random rain clouds
I think the unsung hero here is mom. He is lucky to have a wife with the sense to film these moments with his daughter. I am always the person behind the camera so I am usually not in a lot of the footage with my girls.
I think a father like that is the thing i would have wanted growing up. Being a boy with no father isn’t very good for you...
But youre worth more than you can imagine regardless.
Thank you. Everyone is going through their own stuff, i’m just having a tough time right now. I hope you can get through the thing in your life right now.
As a father, and someone who raised his kids I officially Reddit adopt you, and as my newly found Reddit son I will tell you what I tell mine:
"The thing I want more than anything Is for you to look into the mirror and smile back at how amazing you have become because of who you are not what you don't have"
You are an amazing son, no man can define that only you growing up to show your's what that truly means!
Can you adopt me too plz
Absolutely, as much love as I have that can go around welcome home!
Maybe u/Immortalmecha needs some siblings too!
Thank you :)
I’ll try to take all of the things that happen to me and turn it into some form of wisdom. I know one day i’ll look back on this and view it totally differently, and I’ll probably think all the things i’ve said or did were stupid, but that’s okay.
I wish you the best in continuing to raise your children, and maybe one day you can be an awesome grampa :)
You won't look back and see them as being stupid, you will look back and be reminded of how strong you are and that you made it through all that crap.
You feel like you missed something in life.....funny thing is you now have the power to give something to one of your children you never had when that happens
You really are doing amazing man, and if you ever need to talk or chat just reach out seriously, sometimes we just need to be reminded of who we are don't forget about dear old dad cause you are are "grown-up" now!
Thats the wisest words ive ever read coming from a Redditor Dad.
Man thank you for that it means so much more to so many than you know
You are very welcome, glad it reached you too guess maybe my kids do tell the truth when they say to never change ;)
Love you man, thank you for saying that
Adopt me too? 😬
thats beautiful, thank you
This was probably one of the most beautiful things I've read on here I'm tearing up right now
All love friend. You got this and Im rooting for you.
You guys are almost as wholesome as this video, wishing you all the best!
You too mate!
I hope you can get through the thing in your life right now.
I hope you can get through the thing in your life right now.
I will do it for you.
People are always amazed that my bf wants to actively be there in his kids' lives. He finally has them half time, and isn't giving it up. When we started dating one friend "warned me" that his kids will always be a higher priority than me. I told her, "they are his kids and should always be his top priority." Talking to divorced parents, he seems out if the norm. The few we know can't get the father's to be in their kids life.
What kind of people do you know that they are surprised a dad would want to be a dad?!
That's nuts. I fought like hell to get mine 50%. I very much relate to the second part of the video. My daughter is definitely my #1 girl.
In what twisted mind are someone's children competition? I'm glad you've got your head on straight.
I'm going to tell you something,
I had a quick perusal of your posting history and found you to be a calm, articulate and temperate voice in the discussions you partook in. While I may disagree with some of your positions I don't disagree with the respectful manner in which you generally express those opinions. Frankly, you seem to be a pretty smart cookie and have a lot to offer.
While your upvote/downvotes may not reflect it I'd encourage you to keep being that version of you. It's a version that may not get all the attention, but it's the sort of person I'd be proud to be associated with and I think a lot of other people outside of the Reddit bubble (and many within) would agree.
respectfully, some guys dad.
This comment itself is MadeMeSmile material. You're a good internet dad. :)
I’m not crying YOU’RE CRYING
r/DadForAMinute. if you ever need to talk to a father, or be father for someone else.
Was about to post this.
Be the change you want to see in the world. Have your own kids and make sure you're always there for them, and that they never lack for a father to hug and give them tons of love.
Even better, adopt a child who has no parents. You're giving them a chance at having the childhood they so rightly deserve.
From the other side, I was court ordered to have visitation with an abusive father. I would have been better off without him in my life.
Being any kid with no father is rotten. You’re not alone, you’re loved 💕
I never want my son to say i wasn't around.
No matter what I will always be there like my dad was for me.
I had a good example. A boy needs his dad.
I’m glad you have that mindset. It’s my goal as well to be a good father. I want to be the person that i’ve needed my whole life.
Give your future child what you wanted. You will make a good father
I really hope so. Thank you :)
My husband grew up without a father (and a piss poor mother). He is a perfect father now. You don’t have to become a parent to make your own family and you don’t need a good parent to know how to be a loving and supportive person. Wishing you the best.
I think my situation is very similar to your husband’s. I hope he has gotten over that. To be left by your father and abused by your single mother is something i’ll never wish on a child. I guess i’m glad i know what’s going on, because it’s all gaslighting and full of personal insults and money=happiness why don’t you love me??? My mother’s relationship with me, that is.
It’s my goal to be exactly like your husband, I have a girlfriend who I’m hoping to stick with until I can be like you guys. I hope my naivety isn’t making me blind, but i’ve seen high school relationships go further than that. To me, it seems like we can stick it out, because each other is all we have in both of our twisted situations.
Thank you so much. I hope your family stays strong.
Is your mother a narcissist? If yes r/raisedbynarcissists can offer support
This is such a beautiful thought. Hope is the greatest strength for a human to have and your faith just makes it all the more powerful. I wish you all the best in life!
Maybe the result of this is you becoming the father you've always wanted to be for your own son.
That’s the plan. It especially hurts because my mother always compares me to my father, who was domestically abusive. I have vowed to myself to never put a kid through what i’ve had to go through, or what i’ve had to see.
Yeah... neither is a father who's neglectful and abusive like mine. Screws you up in the head. Still, regardless, I'm happy this little girls dad is such a loving, and seemingly doting, father.
I understand that. I’m kind of in a double whammy situation, cause my father is gone and my mother isn’t the greatest. She basically takes out her stress at home on me and my brother.
I hope you’re doing okay.
You two mate. Sorry to hear about your dad. You deserved better.
Not gonna lie, it still makes me sad whenever I accidentally think about it despite being a grown ass woman.
Pretty new dad here. Best I can offer you is a perfectly measured bottle of formula, funny noises to make you smile, and a big squeeze good night when mom puts you to bed.
Hey man. I wish you good luck with your child. Thanks for the sentiments. I think my main problem is i’m fatherless and my mom takes out her problems on me and my brother. I don’t really have an option to do anything, so i’m just waiting to move out.
Again thanks... I hope one day i can be the person I needed.
Or a father who’s a drunk
With you 100% my dad left when I was young and now I have a daughter I just want to be everything to her that I wish I had.
If you ever want to bounce an idea off of a random Dad hit me up. Everyone deserves that.
I feel you, especially since fatherless homes is the single most prevalent cause of poverty and crime and determine for success
Yeah, i’m kinda a statistical and realistic person, so i definitely know how most of my situation works. I’m hoping to be a positive outliar.
Here’s hoping for that, cheers and stay strong
Our first, a little girl, is due in just 10 weeks. Might be ugly crying over here
Congrats! Best of luck. We're expecting our first in August. Been spending a lot of time on r/daddit
Congratulations! And enjoy every second. Even the rough times. It's such a cliche but the time goes so quickly. Mine are 3 and 5 now and learning to be really present and acknowledge all the little things has meant the world to me.
It's something I only grasped in the last year or so because kids are such a whirlwind it's very easy to just get caught up and blown along.
speaking as a guy who raised a girl--there's nothing better in the world than a daddy's girl. she's now away at college, and I cry myself to sleep from missing her!
My daughter turned 4 a few months ago. Enjoy every day. They're all great, even the terrible ones.
Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!! My daughter was born 7 years ago and she has become just the most incredible person to talk to and spend time with! Wishing you a punctual, safe delivery!
My first was a little over a year ago...and yep, crying.
This is wholesome
Nice to land on The good side of Clickbait once in a while
Bro i was almost mad salty for OP til i realized lol
Mine's grown and on her own. Miss these times....
Mine turned 15 this weekend. Would give anything to spend half a day with her being little again.
Mine is 14 and I'm sitting at work tearing up because I miss when she was this little.
9 and 6 year old girls here, and I’m clinging to every sweet little moment of childhood they still give me.
I have a little niece that's about to turn 6 and I absolutely adore that little kid...she lives with my daughter so whenever I buy my daughter a gift, the little one gets a gift too...she is my best buddy whenever I come to visit and it's so stinking cute because my 14 year old daughter will get jealous if I spend too much time with the little one😂 when my niece was super little my daughter would snuggle up to me then push her away saying "no that's my daddy"...she was obviously just messing with her, but it was adorable seeing them "argue" over me lol
9 and 7 year old girls feel this sentiment so much. Grow too damn fast. I try to get the cuddles as much as I possibly can with them.
Ugh. My daughter is 2 months old so I'm trying to savor every second with that teeny tiny human. I just want her to stay like this forever.
Welp this one got me. Have two under 5 and I need to stop working so much and spend more time with them.
There’s a special bond between a father and his daughter. My firstborn will be 12 this year and it feels like yesterday she was this little. Enjoy each moment. They go by fast.
I know of a married couple where the wife cried bc she thought she was going to have a daughter and said she failed her husband. That’s so sad. I love my daughter and wouldn’t have it any other way.
Suddenly realizes I never got that kind of love from my father
This is fine.
Mine are 3 and 6. They basically are attached to me at the hip. Reading these comments, I feel bad that I spend so much time wishing I could fast-forward to when they're independent and on their own. I should make more of an effort to appreciate this time.
As someone said on reddit, "the nights are long but the days are short".Cherish your time with them coz time ain't coming back.
The days are long but the years are short.
So sweet! Makes me sad because my kid deserved a dad like this .. but she has me so I hope it’s enough.
It’s enough. My dad was out of the picture for a long time. I love my mom so damn much. I would do anything for her. We have an unbreakable bond. Good luck in your life endeavors!
Thank you so much for this!
It's enough. My mother did an amazing job raising my sister and me. She's the kind of parent I aspire to be for my boys. The beautiful thing about love is that it's not a finite resource. You are enough and more.
Keep on keepin on sister! Give her all the love you have and it will be just the right amount!
Your kid will ALWAYS be grateful for you. I promise! ❤️
This needs a NSFW tag. All I want to do is go home and hug my son but I'm stuck at work.
Can confirm, have daughter, best friend forever.
It's kinda funny that Reddit used to hate TikTok so much but nowadays I see TikTok videos all over Reddit's frontpage every day
I thought this was gonna be a cute polyamory post
I thought the twist was going to be that the video was actually from the point of view of the man, and they were going to come out as a trans woman at the end.
I see what you did there ❤️
This is so cute
When i see that it make me think that becoming a carrying father is the most viril thing a man can do.
The title and subreddit confused me for a second
Well that was a terrible ending
Gotta be honest, I got mad at first
time to sort by controversial...
okay maybe one wouldn’t hurt
Hard not to fall for a badge. Mine just happens to say “chick-fil-a”
Thank you for your service.
Inaccurate. The methodology of that study you're alluding to included raising one's voice as domestic violence and drew no distinctions as to who the perpetrator was, only inquiring whether the behavior existed in the relationship.
Answer this question: Has you partner/spouse ever yelled (or even raised their voice) at you? If you answered "yes" to that question, congratulations, you physically abuse your family based upon your own interpretation of the study! You should seek help addressing your abusive behavior.
Well actually no. Only 0.2% of English(as this guy is) police officers/staff are involved in domestic incidents(figures are not broken down into verbal arguments, assaults and so on. Not to mention the fact that Police officers aren’t counted individually outwith police and staff.
Don’t you go letting these facts get in the way off you posting complete bollocks online though.
By the way your 40% figures from the US doesn’t have any basis in statistical science either. Although in saying that even if the more realistic figure of 17% is true it’s still far to high.
The 40% statistic comes from an older study were police officers and their spouses were given anonymous surveys. While the age of the study means it should be taken with a pinch of salt, the discrepancy is so large that even if the rate had halved since the original study then the rate of police family domestic abuse would still be DOUBLE that of the general population.
Personally feel the guy should remove the comment given that it’s completely false.
You sound like you're fun at parties
Please tell me you framed that last shot?
Came for the tears, didn’t know they’d be mine
Im off to hug my kids
We guys are all same, just give us a little hug and we'll fall in love with any girl.
At first I was like, oh shit somebody cheated, and then it was like, well he’s got a point... but heckin cute
My soul mate fell in love with 3 other girls. Sweetest thing ever.
Ok, the title had me for a minute, not going to lie.
More like mademealmostcry, I wish my dad was as affectionate and loved me as much as he clearly loves his daughter
I was like r/lostRedditors at first then I realised, you got me mate
I'm the only girl with 4 brothers. That's why my mum disliked me so much.
This made me so emotional
Thanks for making me feel like shit.
Anyone know how they make this? I want to stitch together photos and videos into one video with music too but I’m a bit behind the tech.
I will say as a dad with a 13 month old girl.... the love is incomprehensible
Now number two will be here in October and I can’t wait for them to get here so I can have that feeling all over again
Weird flex, but ok....
Love this, my eyes are wet now <3
This should actually be on a sub called r/mademecryhappytears 💕😭😭
I have that with my daughter, and it is the best thing in the entire world.
I was expecting a hard cut to him wallering around in the yard with a dog honestly haha. Still, very cute video.
Mademecry more like
It's legitimately brave to post a scene of him as a cop in today's culture.
This makes me think about my relationship with my father. When I was a small las I was his little girl. I’d be so happy hanging out with him, he’d carry me around on his shoulders. I was his little buddy. Then I got the internet and I realized the way he treats me is not very normal. He’s not the best father. I still love him, but I don’t have the same relationship with him as I used to. It’s sad, but the truth.
He's a cop naw forget him
fuck the police
Straight from the underground?
A young ***** got it bad cause he’s brown (I’m looking at you nwordcountbot)
Shitty song ngl
I’m so sick of this cheesy song being used for everything tbh. Cute family tho
Never stood a chance against that smile.
The real question is would he stop his coworker from doing a George Floyd? Or a Brionna Taylor? or a Tamir Rice? or a John Crawford? or a Daniel Shaver?
He’s English, so I imagine he would have. US cops are their own breed.
Oh my fucking heart. So beautiful.
Lest we forget ACAB
Ah yes generalizing a whole group wonderful. I mean at least fuck the police can sometimes be interpreted to mean “fuck the justice system and how bad cops help other bad cops” but acab leaves no room for that assumption. This guy seems alright just be human for a second
I’m sure this English cop has covered up a lot of corruption over in the United States, some people are dense.
Who is this cover of Home by?
Found it, I think: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBITrtY5DaI
The hero this post needed.
That’s just, like, your opinion man
Wait a sec, he is wearing a police uniform and nobody is dumpstering him for it? Maybe Reddit is past the point of cop big bad now? This video shows that usually it’s just a normal loving person behind the uniform not always a racist bigot.
Nah bud, this is still Reddit.
Dude’s a cop. Next time you hear ACAB, think of this gentleman, and realize they’re not.
This is so f*ing beautiful :')
Where are the ACAB degenerates to ruin this wholesome post?
This is just adorable
Had me in the first half ngl
