Dad ‘Forgets’ Son’s Birthday, Makes It Best One Ever


When you’re a kid, there’s no other day of the year like your birthday. Unlike other holidays, it’s your day, and no one can take that away from you. Having a parent forget your birthday would be just about the worst thing imaginable for a kid.

That’s what a young little league player thought had happened to him in a new video that has spread across the internet like wildfire. He was clearly in a bad mood as he got ready to head to his baseball game with his dad. The reason? He thought his dad had forgotten his birthday.

That’s when the dad, who’s doing a great job of playing cool, tells his son he needs him to grab a box from the trunk. I’ll let the video tell the rest of the story:

Not only does the kid get tears in his eyes, but from the sounds of the dad’s voice he was choking up also. What a great move by this father. It’s something the child will remember for the rest of his life.

Let’s hope the little guy went and smacked a few homers with his new bat!
