Children have such a cute response to getting their first love letter or holding hands with their girlfriends for the first time. They look so cute when they can't hide their happiness and excitement. In a video posted on Reddit by u/mindyour, a boy can be seen giving his first love letter to his father. And the best part of the video is the 6-year-old son's reaction while his dad is reading out the letter. He can't stop smiling and is seen blushing throughout the time. He tells his dad to read out the letter. He reads it out, "I'm writing this letter to let you know that I like you I enjoy talking to you." First, the boy laughs and looks at his parents and then blushes and slides under the bed. Meanwhile, the father continues to read it, "I know we hung out a lot but sometimes we do not my heart breaks. Love, Julianne." Toward the end of the video, the child starts laughing when his dad asks, "what the heck is this?"
The video has gained over 52.5k upvotes. It is captioned, "His 6-year-old came home with his first love letter." Many Reddit users found the child's smile adorable. u/Available-Exam6278 commented, "Ha. Look at the dude's smile." u/Anton41PW commented, "I love how comfortable he is with his parents. Showing his feelings." u/AzulaOblongata commented, "He’s so happy about it. Omg, this is so pure."
Many parents could resonate with the child and share their experiences. u/BubblesForBrains commented, "When I was 7, I wrote a love letter to a boy in class. Years later he told me his mom had framed the letter and put it on the wall." u/stinkyelfcheese commented, "My son got a note that said she loves him more than pancakes. :)" U/Difficult-Button3218 commented, "My seven-year-old son came home with a "thank you" note from a girl in his class that said 'thank you for being so loud.' Proud of him."
In another heartwarming story about a child, a 16-year-old, Melissa Mccabe took her 1-year-old son as her prom date. "When prom came around, no one could really have him and I wanted him to be a part of my prom day. I ordered him a suit and took him with me. All of the teachers were saying how gorgeous he looked," Mccabe told The Liverpool Echo.
She shared that it was amazing to take him with her and they took some good pictures. "We don’t really have any nice up-to-date pictures of us. He loved it and he particularly loved all the snacks!” she said. The video was posted on Tiktok and has more than 1.7 million views. The reactions have been overwhelmingly supportive, said Mccabe. “I’ve had an odd couple of negative comments but I’ve also had messages of girls who are pregnant and are still in school and are worried about going back to school. I’ve mainly had loads of people being really supportive which is really nice because it's coming from people I don’t know,” she said. “Arthur is genuinely the most kind-hearted little boy. He loves everyone around him and he’s so spoiled.”
