Becoming a dad changes everything, in ways we never could have anticipated. We face challenges that never crossed our minds before having kids, and experience a type of love we never knew existed. Some of the most beautiful parenting moments aren’t life-changing events but instead are the moments we’re able to stop and fully appreciate the quiet bliss of bonding with our kids.
One Twitter dad who goes by the username Charliebang recently shared two adorable photos with his son, a post that woke up Dad Twitter and sparked a celebration of fatherhood.
Charliebang captioned the heartwarming photos, “Being a dad is a best thing.”

Charliebang’s tweet brought dads together, strangers that were able to connect on an extremely meaningful level. Posts like this resonate for a similar reason that The Dad resonates – fatherhood is uniting. It’s a feeling you can’t understand until you’ve lived it, and once you have, you can’t imagine life any other way.
