How does a military dad away from home read to his child? It's an adorable bedtime ritual that's melting hearts across the Internet.
The wife of an airman away from home for basic training posted this video of her pre-recorded husband reading to his 2-year old daughter. It's got everybody talking about how cute it is. The only one who isn't talking is dad.
Someone posted that dad "better get back home soon or that kid's going to be nearsighted." The adorability factor goes through the roof as the bedtime story ends.
Talk about a screen grab. Every time her daughter asked to see daddy, mom would play one of several pre-recorded videos.
This is similar to the "United Through Reading" program.
Parents separated from their children, especially military parents, record themselves reading aloud and send DVDs home to the kids.
