21 Photos Shared By Single Fathers That Will Make You Go “I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying”
Raising kids isn’t easy, but doing it alone is the hardest work in the world. And while being a single mom is by no means easy, single parenting is even more difficult for men. Although women are better at multitasking than men, these loving dads learned how to cook, clean, and braid their daughters’ hair, and some of them even dressed up as fairy princesses to make their baby smile.
We at Now I’ve Seen Everything admire these strong men who mastered the art of single fathering.
“When your baby wants to go to Ren fair with a fairy princess you oblige.”
“My daughter did my hair. The joys of single dad life.”
“Artist proof of our family photo session at our house — one nice respectable one for grandma, and one showing what it’s REALLY like doing the single parent thing.”
“This is the type of ’matching his and hers’ I need in my life!”

“As a single dad... This right here is amazing.”
