While at work last night a man came in with his son. The son was about 5 or so and had lollygagged behind his dad a bit. The little one was trying not to step on the cracks in the walk way. The dad called back for him to hurry up and said "You can still hurry and not step on the cracks, buddy." Little one stopped and said "I can't step on the cracks because I don't want to break your back, Daddy!" Daddy said "No it's break your mother's back." Little one responded with "I don't have a mother I have you so I don't want to hurt your back." Daddy scooped him up and hugged him and carried him out of the store. lol

That's so precious! Sounds like a loving single father.

From what I could tell about him he is a good dad. I've seen them in the store a few times since, Dad is always buying him toys. lol
