"I like to make people laugh," the dad told BuzzFeed News. "That’s what I’m always trying to do, put a smile on my girls' faces.”

Around three weeks ago, the dad took away Alyvea's phone as punishment. On Saturday night — while his oldest daughter was hanging out with her friend Bailee — he slid this note under her door.

As were the teens. "We both laughed at it when we found it," said Alyvea.
