Anyone who has ever parented a toddler knows they can be pretty attached to mom and dad. Whether you’re off to work, out for the night or just want to go to the bathroom in private, little ones aren’t too keen to let their parents out of their sight. When you inevitably return, though, kids can make your heart melt with their enthusiastic welcomes.
One dad captured his daughter’s adorable reaction to his wife’s return home from work on video. Check it out:
‘Aww, too cute! The little girl can barely contain her excitement a she stomps her feet and claps at the sight of her mom.
“She totally did not do that when I got home,” the dad can be heard saying.
Redditors thought the toddler’s over-the-top reaction was super-cute. One user gave the wise advice to enjoy this phase while it lasts. After all, that squealing baby will one day be a teenager: “My baby does this when I come home too, along with cries of “mama! mama!” and she wraps herself around my shoulders and pats my back while wiggling. Trying to enjoy it while it lasts. I love that part of the day.”
“This is the best feeling ever! I am the breadwinner while my husband stays home with the kids and every day they run out the front door yelling MUMMMMMYYYYYY!! when I get home. They’re 7 and 5 now and I’m still not tired of it,” commented another.
