Daughter Dresses Up As Dad When Asked To Dress As Favourite Superhero
A girl decided to dress up as her dad for her school’s superhero day, and her reasoning will hit you hard in the feels.
When her local school held a superhero day, rather than dressing as Wonder Woman or Iron Man like most kids would, 11-year-old Aubrey Archuleta from Colorado decided to dress as her dad, Brian Hills.
The superhero day came during a week of morale-boosting events at Aubrey’s school to raise school spirit ahead of the Valentine’s Day Dance, which was held a week early.
When asked why she chose her dad as her favourite superhero, the 11-year-old said that ‘dads should always be a girl’s superhero’.
Upon being told of her decision to dress as him, doting dad Brian, 35, said his ‘heart exploded’.
Speaking to UNILAD, he said:
My heart figuratively exploded. I felt I had reached the pinnacle of Dad-ness. Being a parent has its inherent challenges at times. I think all parents just want to know they’re doing something right. This was that moment for me.
We try to teach our children well. Moments like that are our reward.
Here come the feels.
Brian shared the heart-warming story on online Facebook community Life of Dad, and the post has generated more than 11,000 likes since being shared yesterday, February 7.
The post read:
My daughter dressed as me this morning she’s supposed to dress as her favorite superhero for school today.
I began to gave her ideas, but she immediately interrupted and said: ‘No, I wanna dress as you, Dad.’
She pieced the whole thing together herself and completely nailed it. BEST DAD MOMENT EVER!!
While Aubrey’s biological mother isn’t around, the 11-year-old’s family consists of her dad, stepmother Jessica and stepsister Bella, 16, which Brian describes as a ‘beautiful, blended family’.
We are a great family. And we are known for dressing up and being silly. So it was natural for Aubrey to as well. We all dress in outlandish festive wear for holidays. And I have emulated movie characters when visiting places for example Alan from The Hangover while in Las Vegas and Rocky Balboa while visiting Philadelphia.
Another example of a touching father-daughter relationship is between Casey Fields and one-year-old Lyla.
Despite describing himself as a ‘manly’ man, Casey still dressed up in a bright pink tutu with his baby daughter for a photo shoot they’ll both treasure forever.
If you ask me, it seems both Brian and Casey are bossing being dads and making their daughters smile.
