Fathers can do some pretty embarrassing things, like making fun of their daughter’s boyfriend pics, trying to impose an unreasonable dating age, or failing to act cool in public. Well, here’s a dad who is (sort of!) up to all three of those things at once.
Before the school dance, Benjamin Schock was watching his 15-year-old daughter pose with her boyfriend for some standard couples’ photos, taken by his wife, Sharee, a photographer. Schock decided to play the jokester, jumping in for a few couples’ photos of his own with their poor daughter’s unsuspecting date, who seems (from the photo, at least) to take the whole thing in stride. As did Sharee, who added the funny caption and posted the whole thing online.
“My husband is a big-hearted teddy bear, so it was his way of being silly with a pinch of ‘I’m watching you, buddy,'” mom Sharee told Buzzfeed. She also mentioned that her husband has been battling brain tumors, so the lighthearted moment was even more special for the family.
A happy moment and important fatherly message, captured forever on film? We’re all about it.
