Every kid loves giving their parents something they made themselves. They eagerly anticipate the response and judgment of their parents. And while most gifts that children give their parents are treasured, this 9 years old boy’s gift was exceptional.
He put a lot of time and work into his gift, and his father’s response made it all worthwhile.
Because of a cute thing he did, a 9 years old Massachusetts boy is all over the internet. The video of Aaron Gouveia’s son giving him a very thoughtful present was first shared online.
The video was uploaded by Gouveia to his TikTok account, @daddyfiles, and it received over 13 million views in just three days. The three-parent father was overjoyed to receive such a wonderful present from his son.
Gouveia revealed in an interview that his son was inspired to start this hobby by his great-aunt Vali after attending sewing classes for more than a year.
His distant auntie is an amazing needle worker. Everything is sewn by her. “She thought it was so great that she gave us gifts throughout her life,” Gouveia stated in an interview. She taught her how to do things for the past two years, to the point where she wanted to take it to the next level.”
At the Franklin Mill Store, a local shop, Sam has been learning how to sew. According to his father, the talented nine years old has made several scrunchies, a dress for his cousin, a pillowcase, cat pajama pants for his brother, and a shirt.
Gouveia stated, “I was so impressed and so flattered that he wanted to make it for me.”
“It’s excellent. It is unquestionably unique. It looks very 1970s. It almost has a lapel like a leisure suit. However, it fit and it was my style,” he said of the now-renowned naval force blue shirt, which has a lovely complex botanical print with roses.
As he tells his father how he made the shirt, the young boy can be seen beaming with pride in the video. As soon as he puts it on, his father gushes with praise for his son. He praises his son’s talent and expresses his joy at receiving the present.
The books “Men and Miscarriage” and “Raising Boys to Be Good Men” are written by Gouveia. He stated that he wore the shirt to his father’s birthday dinner the night it was given to him as a present and plans to wear it again soon.
Despite the fact that he is the only boy in the class, Sam does not let this deter him. He doesn’t care that he is the only boy present. He’s not stopped by that. Gouveia stated, “He just loves it.” The Franklin Mill Store is such a welcoming and instructive setting. We are extremely appreciative of them,” he added.
He makes dresses, shirts, pants, pillows, ruffles, and other similar items despite the fact that he is only nine years old. The proud father added, “It’s really amazing.”
Sam has been infected with this virus before. His reaction when he received a sewing machine as a birthday present won millions of hearts around the world on his 9th birthday. And earlier in 2018, he also went viral for wearing fingernails that made him laugh, but strangers flocked online to support the young lad.
Sam is currently working diligently on his stitching. Gouveia remarked, “He’s working on a shirt for his also since he doesn’t want his mother to feel left out.”
We wish the Gouveia family the best of luck! They seem like such wonderful people. Share this heartwarming story with your friends and family to make their day.
