Children live for the moment when mom or dad returns home from work.

There is nothing sweeter than a small child’s joy and excitement over seeing his or her parent come home from work.

When the parent has been away for an extended period, the reunion is even more emotional.

A toddler’s love knows no bounds.

A long journey away from family.

For truck drivers, being away from family is a part of the job.

Even though they have to deal with the separation for a short time, a heartfelt welcome home from loved ones makes it all worthwhile.

In a video posted on TikTok by Alexis Hatter, her adorable toddler stops everything when he sees his daddy arrive home.

The little boy takes off so fast wearing nothing but a diaper and a baseball cap. His little legs are moving at an extremely fast pace.

This is one happy little dude.

If you blink you’ll miss him.

As if his little legs couldn’t go any faster, he shoots across the lawn straight to his dad.

The little boy’s father stands on the truck’s stairs watching his son run to him.

The hat throw that melted hearts.

In the video, the toddler is seen running but at the halfway point, he grabs his little hat off his head and throws it on the ground with inexplicable emotion.

The reaction from TikTok users was as expected. Everyone was in love with the video and especially the dramatic hat throw.

One person wrote, “Love when he throws the hat on the ground.” Another said, “He threw that like a grown man…love it.”

Someone else chimed in, “I can’t watch this enough! I love the throwing the hat off!

Just when you thought people were over the hat throwing, another wrote, “My god, that hat throw is everything!!!!!!”

He’s almost there.

The TikTok video is captioned, ‘Daddy’s home!’ and has Alabama’s ‘Roll On (18 wheeler)’ playing in the background.

The song is just perfect for the video and it is giving us all kinds of goosebumps.

A hug can erase hundreds of miles.

You can see the dad’s 18-wheeler in the background as the Alabama song plays. He may have been gone a while, but this dad is now back with his family.

His little boy is beyond happy to see him again because his dad is his hero of course.
