Military dad surprises his daughter
Maj. Jake Brittingham had been stationed in Africa for the past five months, and he's been badly missed by his daughter Emma. So to surprise her, he showed up at her first gymnastics competition. Luckily, the moment was captured on video.

Dad came home early, arrived at the gym and hid. Operation Surprise Emma was a go.

With mom Kelley and older sister Erin in the audience, the announcer asks 9-year-old Emma, “If you had one wish today, what would it be?”

“That my dad could be here,” she answers.

“Really? How about you turn around?” the announcer says to gasps in the crowd as Emma’s father appears behind her. A joyful Emma gets a huge hug from her dad.

Big Surprise for a Teen at her prom.
Wade never officially responded, and the media, general public and Muxo herself assumed that the plea had fallen on deaf ears. As it turns out, it hadn’t, and Muxo and her surprising date stole the show at the Archbishop Carroll senior prom.

Apparently, Wade had dragged out his response because he wanted to see how the Heat’s playoffs were progressing before committing to spend an evening not competing in the middle of a game. After Miami knocked off Chicago with the Knicks and Pacers still locked in a tense series, Wade decided he could spare part of an evening to surprise a well-deserving teen.

As reported by the Miami Herald and CBS Miami, Wade made his appearance with plenty of fitting flair, as well. The former NBA Finals MVP called Muxo to send her happy wishes for her prom -- which she had agreed to attend with fellow Archbishop Carroll student Laurent Chaumin in Wade’s stead -- but then walked through the door 10 minutes later to surprise her.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
