He Thought Dad Forgot His Birthday Until He Looked Inside The Box

When all you see is bad news throughout the day, moments of PURE JOY like this become worthy of sharing with the world.

You know those loving moments where you find yourself asking, “Hey, who the heck is chopping up onions under my eyes?” Well, this is definitely one of those.

As a youngster, you looked forward to your birthday (I stopped getting older last year) because you knew that you would get to open up presents. But what would you do if your parents forgot to get you anything?

Before a father and son set off for a baseball game, dear old Dad took out his phone and began recording. He asked his son why he was pouting, but the little boy refused to even open his mouth. In his mind, dad forgot his birthday.

Then, before they left, the father told his son to “Go look in the back,” and that’s when the boy knew something was up. Not wanting to get his hopes up, the young man slowly opened up the trunk of the car, and found a box from Amazon. At first he was hesitant, but then dear old Dad told him to go ahead and open it.

As he was ripping into the box, the boy began to sob tears of joy. He thought his dad had forgotten his big day, but it turns out that he couldn’t have been more wrong.

Check out this precious father-son moment for yourself, but you better have some tissues ready to go:

You can see it in his eyes, the little boy can’t believe his dad got him exactly what he wanted. How could he have thought that his own dad would ever forget his birthday? How could any parent forget about a cute kid like that!?

Few things make me cry, but father-son moments like this will always have me bawling like a baby!
