Dad Sweetly Surprises Son After Letting Him Think He Forgot His Birthday

Facebook/Bleacher Report

The worst thing you could ever do is forget your child’s birthday, right? Well, not exactly.

If you play it off like this father did, “forgetting” a birthday can turn into a very sweet moment for both you and your little one.

Thanks to Bleacher Report, there’s a video circulating of a father, Bra Fowler, acting as though he doesn’t know its his son’s birthday. His son is obviously upset and gets into the car with his father after a baseball game, hardly speaking to him.

Then, his dad tells him to open up the trunk of the car. There, he finds a brand new baseball bat waiting for him. Tears are immediately brought to the son’s eyes. And believe me— your eyes will well up, too.

Because there’s not a dry eye in the house after watching this touching moment.

See what I mean? “Forgetting” a birthday isn’t the end of the world. As long as you immediately recover from it, that is. You’ve definitely got to have a plan in action, and this father had just that. I’m just so glad he caught it all on camera!

Such a sweet moment between a father and son. It really is a bond like no other, isn’t it?
