BlowPopGirl: At least twice while he was gone, my daughter has gone to hug anonymous men in camoflage yelling out, "Uncle Kevin, I've been missing you!". A Sweet sentiment....too bad one of them was actually a turkey hunter not serviceman.

Cs/yada yada


When my daughter was 3, she took to hugging random guys in PT clothes while yelling "Daddy!".

Poor young soldiers. Scared 'em to death.

So, he didn't know his son could walk... kind of a dick move to kneel down and say come here, then, wasn't it?

/actually i have dust in my eye.
 
2012-05-10 09:19:47 AM

neversubmit: The life expectancy of children with cerebral palsy is grim but at least they this moment.



My son played little league baseball with a boy that had parents with CP. The dad worked as a programmer for Yum foods and the mom was a homemaker. They lived a pretty full life, so don't think it's gloom and doom for this boy.

I dunno, Daily Mail... This could be a hoax...

/it ain't though
//or is it...

It is certainly staged.

If dad didn't know kid could walk, why'd he wait 30' away for the kid to you know.. walk to him. If dad didn't know, he would have walked over to the kid, not part way.

Mose: inkydoo: I know this family personally. They are great people. My husband deployed with cooney. I can't imagine how hard it must be to be a military dad with two special needs kids .

I can't imagine it's very easy for the mom either. I have enormous respect for both.

And you and your husband. Next time you see him, tell him some random COJ on the internet says "thanks, and be safe."


Thanks :) I will! And that mom is tough as nails. There have been so many occasions where I just sit there baffled and think, god how does she do it?

It's steel ovaries I tell yah.

When I get back home in... holy crap I have almost 9 more months of this shiat?!?!?

I was going to make some demands for media, but I just got depressed.

9 months.

//Can't even claim I'm gay to get sent home anymore.

Well no not now that he is walking, CP kids that can't walk live to ~20. Which is why it's such a big deal for this child to be walking.

My daughter is 15 months and has been doing that for a while now. My husband is a giant red head but she even says it to short black men. It's hilarious.... and awkward.

this isnt funny..
 
2012-05-10 10:30:10 AM
All I know is that I'm definitely booking D.J. Finesse for my next event.
 
2012-05-10 10:32:45 AM
Dust.
 
2012-05-10 11:15:42 AM

I Said: Does it bother anyone else that the Daily Mail posts a string of stills of the entire event prior to showing the video of it happening?


I tellya what. The story and the stills pretty much wrecked me. I couldn't watch the vid. I don't normally have any emotional response to this kind of thing. In fact, when I read the headline I snarkily thought to myself that the kid's surprise would be "Daddy, mommy's new 'friend' Dave taught me to ride a bike". But no. Now I'm all weepy. Weepin' like some menopausal granny. farkity farking shiat-ass goddammit.
 
2012-05-10 11:24:40 AM
Awesome. Now, where's my vacuum and Swiffer...

/so dusty

Anyone that proofreads a FARK headline risks someone else submitting it first.

SoxSweepAgain: I have nothing snarky to say.

Nice.


amen
 
2012-05-10 12:07:02 PM
I swear these are just cuz of allergies.
 
2012-05-10 12:45:27 PM
See? If we didn't have wars, we wouldn't have touching stories like this.
 
2012-05-10 12:55:17 PM

MAYORBOB: chaosweaver: ArcadianRefugee: The irony is, next time they see one another the dad won't be able to walk.

/IED

Damn, that's cold. I had a hard time trying to find the humor there.

That comment has been officially declared humor-free.


Dark humor is dark.

Or maybe his wife said "Honey wait right here, our son has a surprise for you"
 
2012-05-10 02:28:09 PM
I'd rather see a stripper walk towards me for the first time upon arrival but that's me.

gopher321: Little boy gives him a surprise of his own

"Dad, I wanna be a hairdresser when I grow up"


"A streetfightin' hairdresser, son? Well, alrighty, then."

It bothers me more that this is up-voted as "Smart" when there is in fact a video in the article.

MorrisBird: Good daddy is good. Brave little boy is brave.


THIS.

It is awfully dusty in here.
 
2012-05-10 10:26:46 PM

Gwendolyn: It's a great story but filming these soldiers coming home surprises always feel a bit like exploitation to me. Let these people meet up and have their moments in peace.


You know how we know you are not a vet?
