He enjoys wearing nail polish. Why? Because it's about being a good dad.

Nathan Bond is a single dad who loves manicures.

Why doesn't every dad have the gorgeous nails of Nathan Bond? This is a question we must ponder.


But only very special manicures.

He gets manicures from his 6-year-old daughter, Sadie.

You see, Nathan paints Sadie's nails. And then Sadie paints Nathan nails. It's something they love to do together.

Bond is an artist, teacher, and single dad. He sports his painted nails in his everyday, normal life, and yes, he says, many people ask him about his painted nails:

He *is* like the Van Halen of cool dads, tho.

He has the best answer to anyone who wonders what's up with his nails:

"When I walk around with them, I look at my nails that she's painted, I think about her," he says. "And that's really nice, so it's a way of taking her around with me."

These manicure sessions have been a good learning moment for both Nathan and Sadie in more ways than one.

Sadie has been painting her dad's nails since she was only 2 years old. Now at age 6, Sadie has learned from her dad how to respond to questions about gender stereotypes that other children might ask her in the coolest way.

"There are no boy colors or girl colors," says Sadie.

Sadie also does her dad's toenails, in case you were wondering.

Colors are just colors. Love is just love! What an awesome way to teach and model tolerance, love, and acceptance to your child and to all the people you encounter.

Every day, all Sadie and Nathan need to do is look down at their hands to see the beautiful, whimsical colors and be reminded of the strength and pride that they have in their love for each other.

Some people might think it's weird for a dad to wear nail polish, but when you see the love Nathan and Sadie have for each other it's impossible to feel anything but joy about their close bond.

So why does Nathan wear nail polish? He does it because he's a good father. End of story. <3

Welp, the two skateboarding events added to the Olympics this year have wrapped up for the women's teams, and the results are historic in more ways than one.

Japan's Kokona Hiraki, age 12, just won the silver medal in women's park skateboarding, making her Japan's youngest Olympic medalist ever. Great Britain's Sky Brown, who was 12 when she qualified for the Tokyo Olympics and is now 13, won the bronze, making her Great Britain's youngest medalist ever. And those two medal wins mean that two-thirds of the six medalists in the two women's skateboarding events are age 13 or younger. (The gold and silver medalists in women's street skateboarding, Japan's Momiji Nishiya and Brazil's Rayssa Leal, are also 13.)

That's mind-blowing.
