26-year-old Trajuan Briggs, academic advisor at the University of New Mexico and father to cute-as-a-button toddler Isiah, recently initiated one of the most wholesome Twitter threads you'll ever see. Uploading an adorable pic of himself with Isiah sprawled over his chest, blissfully snoozing away, he suggested, just for fun, that other dads do the same.

“Fathers, we should start a thread of pics showing how our kids sleep on us,” he wrote, and it clearly resonated with people! Dads from all over the world joined in with their own pics, as well as exchanging opinions and tips on fatherhood in general.

“The thread started because I'm fairly new in fatherhood, I have a year in the game,” Trajuan told Buzzfeed News. “A lot of my friends are fathers so throughout the process no one ever told me about the crazy sleeping positions, it was never discussed.”

“So before bed, me and Isaiah watch Elmo on my phone and he just knocks out on my neck. As I'm laying there it hits me, take a pic because this is hilarious and send it to the bros. Then I thought how cool it would be if just fathers shared the craziness together. Sort of a 'you're not alone, bro' type thing for comedy. It just blew up.”

The caption rips my heart out. Poor sweet kiddo. At least he'll always have pics to remind him of how much his dad loved him.

What a picture of peacefulness, love and deep contentment. It makes my soul smile.

As the pics started pouring in Trajuan realized that he'd done something special, bringing guys together in a positive way and spreading the joys (and hilarious moments) of fatherhood.

“The general online responses are dope!” he said. “Like I said, I didn't think it would be big at all so it's amazing seeing the reactions and positivity. That's what it's all about. The best responses have been all the participating dads.”

Toe in the nose... toe in die ribs... toe in the crotch. The joys of co-sleeping :)

“Showing another side of fatherhood and having a community supporting each other. Just refreshing to see with a lot of good vibes. I just hope people take away the cool parts of life and social media. Twitter gives laughs, tears, motivation, arguments. I just want to provide a happy moment.”

What do you think? Did the thread bring the positive vibes for you? Does your child manage to find weird and wonderful ways to fall asleep on you? Let us know what you think in the comments!

She saw this painting by Salvador Dalí and she just hasn't been the same since then.

Older siblings are often like second parents. I call my sister my sister-mother-friend, she’s all of those things.

Beautiful picture. Some photoshopping to erase the person in the background would make it into an even better shot.
