Dad's Calming Trick Makes Toddler Wake Up With A Beaming Smile

No screaming here.

A dad managed to wake his toddler up with a smile on her face that reached from ear-to-ear thanks to his calming alarm clock technique.

Instead of abruptly disrupting the child's peaceful sleep, he slowly walked his fingers across her chest, gently tickling her.

Each time he did this, she smiled before finally opening her eyes and beaming happily up at her dad.
