“This video of this adorable little girl encouraging her Dad while he tries to do her hair, is just what we needed to brighten up our day.” [X]
[Dad: How’m I doing on your hair?
Dad: Let’s see, do I need more grease?
Child: Yes. You need more grease on there.
Dad: More grease? And then what?
Child: And then you gonna need to brush it, and then you put a band on there.
Dad: A band on it?
Child: You’re getting it through! You’re almost done! You’re doing a good job!
Dad: Aww, thank you, sweetheart, so much! Daddy’s trying, doing the best I can. Thank you so much.
Child: You’re welcome!
Dad: I’m almost done!
Child: You been doing great!
Dad: Aw baby, thank you so much, you’re so encouraging to Dad. Thank you.
Child: You’re welcome.
Dad: I really appreciate you so much. You’re so awesome. Daddy getting your ponytails ready for school.]
Interrupting all the political ugliness to make you melt with cute.
Me as a father
this is so pure
Kids that age are parrots of tone and phrasing. So the whole bit with “You’re getting it through! You’re almost done! You’re doing a good job!” means that there is at least one adult, if not more, in her life that regularly talks to her that way.
Everything about this video makes me happy.
