The bond between a father and child is a strong one…unless the dad decides to shave his beard.

In a hilarious video that has nearly 10 million views, bearded fathers from all across the globe capture the moment when their children see their shaven faces for the first time.

The reaction on most of the little faces seems to say, “Who the heck are you and where is my dad?”

It’s almost as if the tiny tots are moving rapidly through the five stages of grief. At first, they are playing with their dad without a care in the world and then dad’s new look creeps in like a dark cloud. Their joyful expressions turn to complete disgust.

This little one is not amused.

As she plays peek-a-boo with her dad she pulls the cover off his face to reveal his new look. This is not the face she was expecting and she is not having it. She bursts into tears and turns to her mom for help. Her dad tries to cuddle her to make her feel better. Not sure a cuddle is going to work this time dad.

This little one is not expecting this at all.

Uh oh…Who are you and what have you done with my dad.

You’re in trouble now dad! The joy quickly turns to shock as she tries to figure out who this person is standing in front of her.

She is not a happy girl and she wants everyone to know it.

Her parents giggle in the background and dad tries his best to comfort her and make her feel better. Maybe dad should start growing that beard back asap.

I think we know how this little girl feels about dad’s new look.

She bursts into tears and dad and mom can’t help but giggle. Hopefully, she will forgive him one day but it’s not likely. It’s a good thing hair grows back or this dad would be in the doghouse for quite a while.
