20 Kids Who Turned Dad Into A Human Pillow

Dads play so many important roles in their children’s lives.

They’re the protectors, the wisdom-givers, the joke-makers and the adventure-takers. These men, with their arms and hearts wide open, are always there for their little ones, day or night. It’s no wonder why kids take so much comfort in just being near their fathers… Plus, they make the best pillows.

Trajuan Briggs is one such dad who can often be found with his son, Isiah, napping atop him. He recently tweeted a photo of the cuteness and asked other fathers to do the same. What followed turned into one of the most wholesome Twitter threads out there. Get ready to do a ton of smiling when you see how these 20 kiddos like to get their snooze on with Dad.
