19 Things Fathers Do To Show Us They're Our Everyday Superheroes

Just dad things.

Kids are enamored with superheroes, but they may not always realize they have one in their very own at home. He's the guy picking them up from school, or making their lunches, or just the person who's around to hear what happened that day. He's their dad. 

Dads give us the life lessons we need to succeed in the world, make us laugh when all we want to do is cry, and try their hardest to provide us with the best they can. 

Sometimes they do this by working harder and longer than anyone else we know. Other times, they're stay-at-home dads who dedicated their days to raising us. The paternal figure in your life may look different than someone else's, but there's no question he'll always have a special place in your heart. 

Dads are pretty amazing and they deserve to be called out for all the ways they show it. We scoured Imgur for some images that show how fathers can be the best. You can check them out below:
