Dad humor is a special brand of comedy gold. Dads whip out jokes and gags that are occasionally embarrassing, regularly groan-worthy, but more often than not, it’s exactly what we need. Anna Gazmarian has struggled with postpartum depression since the birth of her daughter, and in typical dad fashion, Anna’s husband David utilized the power of dad-level humor to brighten her mood.
“He has a way of cheering me up with things like dressing up in costumes with her,” Anna told The Dad. “He does things like send me flowers from our dogs, etc. He’s got the dad humor thing down.”
Anna recently shared a photo on Twitter that captured the epitome of David’s dad-level humor, and his touching bond with his daughter. In the photo, David smiles down at his daughter, a content grin plastered on her tiny face as if she’s fully in on the gag. The photo is adorable but otherwise typical – aside from the fact that both dad and baby are wearing matching banana costumes.
“I heard my husband whispering to our daughter about ordering something on Amazon for her. Then I came home from the grocery today to this,” Anna captioned the hilarious photo.

“I came home to them dressed in the costumes and proceeded to cry,” Anna told The Dad. “He is a great dad. I’m pretty sure that Batman and Robin costumes are in the future.”
Anna’s heartwarming photo spread like wildfire, receiving over 250,000 likes and thousands of comments in just two weeks. Inspired by David’s wholesome gesture, parents rushed to the comment section by the bunch in order to share their own adorable photos.

Don’t you hate when you show up to a tweet wearing the exact same banana costume?
10/10 recommend giving this as a gift to your brother and his daughter https://t.co/lhJAf8XLw6 pic.twitter.com/FldITtVMPV
