Watching this small child giving hugs to everyone, including total strangers at this outdoor event, is the most heartwarming thing you'll see all day.
We've all been there, right? Mom and dad say it is time to go, but we don't want to. But where most toddlers might throw a tantrum or fight to stay, this young boy instead said goodbye to everyone at the event, regardless if he knew them or not.
His parents told him "it’s time to go bye-bye", so he gave every stranger a hug. My heart 😭 RETWEET THIS ❤️ https://t.co/d7QCGyTxAa— StanceGrounded (@StanceGrounded)1541327206.0
It is such a cute thing to watch. As he moves from person to person, everyone seems very open to the hugs. The child is more than willing to say bye to absolutely every single person.
It was the best way for the internet to start the day.
