A father in the US wet his pants with water to match his six-year-old daughter’s after she had an accident at school. Ben Sowards is being praised for his actions after images of him and his young daughter, Valerie, were posted online.
Older sister, Lucinda Sowards, uploaded the photos to Twitter with a caption that shared their story. “My little sis had an accident today at kindergarten and this is how my dad left to pick her up so she wouldn’t feel so sad/embarrassed,” she wrote.
The Utah father told Today he asked his daughter to borrow her backpack in order to hide his 'mistake'.
"I walked into the school...I walked up next to Valerie, who was sitting, looking down at the floor, and I put my arm around her and I said, 'Valerie, can I have your backpack? I need to cover up this accident,'" he said.
"And she just looked at me with the perfect look — just disbelief — and we started laughing."
