A toddler's heartwarming friendship with the garbage men has gone viral, spreading joy across the internet.
Children tend to be very innocent and pure, which leads to parents witnessing heartwarming moments as they interact with the world around them. They also develop unique bonds with people that are just wholesome to see. Brie Mazin–who goes on Instagram by @floridayogamama–shared an emotional video highlighting her son's special bond with their garbage truck drivers. The video has gone viral with over 11 million views and 876K likes on the platform.
At the start of the video, viewers can see the cute boy in his diaper greeting the garbage truck worker. The text overlay reads, "For the past 4 years, our son has been obsessed with our garbage truck drivers." Mazin shared that her son would wait by their door until he saw the truck's arrival. When they do show up, we can see the boy look at the camera and exclaim, "Here he comes!"
The toddler went a step ahead to make the driver's day and offered them soft drinks whenever he came to the house. While receiving the boy's precious gift, the duo would "catch up on life" with a quick chat. The woman states that she does not know who enjoyed the meetings more, the boy or the garbage truck driver. We can then see many instances of the boy eagerly running up to the driver, offering him different types of drinks on many occasions.
Her son wanted to do something extra special for them during Christmas. So, the family bought some Dunkin' Donuts to give to the driver. We can see a tempting box containing 12 donuts in four different flavors. The video cuts to reveal the adorable boy offering the box of donuts to the driver, saying, "Happy Holidays, here are your donuts." The driver is very happy with this gift and shares that there was nobody else like the little boy while giving him a friendly elbow bump.

People on the social media platform adored the boy's bond with the driver and shared their thoughts in the comment section. @mchelel22 said, "Without these men, imagine what our neighborhood would look like. They are a clear necessity! Lord bless them all!" @_molebohengm pointed out, "It's the fact that his parents buy the drinks each week. It's not the son alone. We see him, but we see you too." @sorciandrew shared, "I'm a garbage man and it makes my day when little kids want you to honk the horn because the smile it puts on their face makes my day."
Children also have the most genuine and pure reactions in certain situations. u/Recent-Sorbet shared an adorable video where a little girl met the famed cartoon character Minnie Mouse while she was eating her food. The clip, which was an overdose of cuteness, had gone viral with 15K upvotes and 89 comments. We can see the little girl seated at the table, wearing a crown on her head. A person wearing the Minnie Mouse costume approaches her from behind. Soon enough, the girl notices her and is very happy to see her as she bows to her.
The little girl continues to be in disbelief as Minnie Mouse crouches next to her and leans in to get a peck on the nose from her. She happily obliges while also giving out a few flying kisses. Minnie Mouse leans in for a few more kisses, which the girl readily gives her. Such reactions from children are truly wholesome and heartwarming.
