Photos of President Obama playing with children were on everyone’s TL this weekend, reminding us why it'll be hard to see POTUS leave the White House.

President Obama is a pretty lovable guy—this we know. A Twitter hashtag gave us a million and one more reasons to think he's simply the best this weekend. 

Activist and writer Michael Skolnik said he was feeling nostalgic while sitting with his two-year-old so he asked followers to post feel-good photos of POTUS to celebrate Black History month.
