An Australian dad is making the most of a challenging situation, effortlessly occupying his little girl as he tries to work from home. The sentimental pops shared a snap of the sweet moment he let his daughter paint his toenails while on a business call.
Heading to his LinkedIn account, Adrian Di Francesco shared the touching picture.
"Working from home during another lockdown sometimes means letting your kid give you a pedicure so you can take a call in silence," he captioned the cute post.
Social media users were largely in agreement about the post, finding the contrast between work and home life a powerful commentary on our new lives under lockdown. Still, others expressed their dislike for kids in the workplace, even at home.

"I do not personally have children, and I must say that seeing children, young adults, pets etc pop into the corner of the screen during a meeting is a welcomed perk of life in lockdown or our soon to be …more flexible way of working. It changes the mood instantly, increases warmth and in a strange way reminds us that at the centre of all our work are living beings."
Magnette Coetzer said:
"Not pointing fingers here, as the little girl is out of the picture...but, am I the only one getting annoyed with kids' constant shouting in the background during calls, zoom meetings etc? Make a plan. Close the door. Hire a helper..... it's highly unprofessional! The parent is always distracted, communication is terrible."
Ralph Mangaron said:
"Well, it was super cute to me."

"That colour looks good on you Adrian Di Francesco."

"I am seeing BIG NAMES HERE. CEO's, brand managers, HR heads, licensed physicians and engineers etc. BIG NAMES but with BIG HEARTS too. Sometimes we tend to forget that even though they are these high officials in the office- these are also someone's moms and dads and they are humans too."
"I love this picture! On so many levels it has a lesson for us...... 1. We are all human, yes even the unlikeable sulky colleagues who behave like robots in meetings probably laugh and giggle with their families. 2. Not everyone has an option to hire nannies or hideaway in private spaces whilst wfh so let's show some grace and patience."
Aww: Adorable video shows baby removing dad's mask to give him a kiss
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that one infant has had just about enough of her dad's mask-wearing, removing the personal protective equipment to steal a kiss. The entire heartwarming moment was caught on video.
Heading to their Instagram account, @momsandmamas shared the touching clip. The mom-&-baby-based content page was certainly feeling the daddy-daughter love.
"Wait for it! This is the sweetest," they captioned the post along with a few blushing face and heart emojis.
Watching the clip, it's clear the baby girl missed seeing her favourite guy's face. The silly mask could not stand between the toddler and an affectionate moment with her dad, removing it in the most nonchalant manner.
Social media users definitely felt bad for the little girl but reflected on the fact that not even Covid could stand between this father-daughter love. Check out some of the comments below:
"My 2-year-old does this! I love it haha."
"Just so sad, stop wearing a mask!!! Let your babies see you!"
"Look at that little belly poking out."
"Oh my gosh, this is the best!"
"Melted my heart."
