This story has been going viral at an insane rate, and for very good reason.
It’s about a man, sitting in his living room with his family. Nothing over the top viral, right? Well, then something happens. Joselyn, his daughter, asks dad if he can take her doll, Abbie, with work to him. Apparently Abbie really wanted to go out truckin’ with “grandpa”, and the daughter wanted to make her dolls dream come true. And so it was. This dad didn’t brush off the request as silly or ridiculous like so many other parents would. Instead he went along with the idea. He took Abbie with him on the road, and documented the whole thing so his daughter could keep tabs on her dolls adventure all along the way.
Here’s what he had to say:
“Last night, Joselyn our 9 year old daughter asked if I would babysit “Abbie ” for her today. “She really wants to go trucking with her Grandpa ” This morning before I leave, she reminds me I’m babysitting today. Well being the good “Grandpa” I agree to take her. We decided to have a little fun and post pictures of our travels.”
“I didn’t want Joselyn thinking I threw Abbie in the sleeper and forgot about her. She has been sending instructions via Facebook all day. Abbie and Grandpa have had a good day, and glad we could bring a little entertainment to our friends.”
Abbie got the grand trucking treatment, even munching on some snacks courtesy of gramps!
Here’s Abbie posing with the truck.
Abbie learns from gramps how the harvester operates. Yikes! Looks like she has a full diaper!

Really cute pictures, but what this dad has done is the real story here. He is a father who is not afraid, burdened, or decides to blow off a ridiculous request by his daughter. Instead he embraces it, and goes for it with gusto. The whole day was spent documenting the process, which for certain made his daughters day and no doubt they will remember this silly yet profound episode for the rest of their lives.
Share this wonderful story with all of your friends and family!
