Son Practically Jumps for Joy Watching Dad Open Gifts He Picked Out for His Birthday

He was so proud of himself!

Little kids are, without a doubt, the most enthusiastic gift-givers of all time. Especially if they're in on the present from the beginning, as in, they went shopping with you and helped to pick out the gift. They get so excited anticipating how excited the recipient will react that the whole exchange becomes that much more fun. Their enthusiasm is infectious.

Just take the little boy in this video from @rockstar_glam. He is SO excited for his dad to open his birthday present that he's practically bouncing up and down. This is a kid who definitely went shopping for these gifts with mom and helped her pick out just the right items. And he's just so dang proud. 


Such a sweetie! Little ones are so pure, they truly do get joy just from bringing happiness to other people, even when there's nothing in it for them. (Which is not to say that the little boy doesn't think those screwdrivers are pretty cool and maybe dad will let him have a turn with one.)

Commenters just loved the sweetness of this father-son bonding moment..
