Being 5 years old is tough, especially when you learn about the circle of life. In this moving video, a young girl shares her angst over realizing that her little brother won’t stay a baby forever — and it’s quickly going viral.
The YouTube clip was posted on July 28th and at the time of this post, it has already garnered over 4 million views. It’s simply titled “Sadie Doesn’t Want Her Brother to Grow Up,” and it features a doting little girl named Sadie, who is talking about how much she doesn’t want her baby bro to grow up.
Over her choking sobs, we can just make out that Sadie is completely distraught that not only is her bro going to get old, but she is too. “I don’t want him to grow up,” she cries. “I don’t want to die when when I’m a hundred.”
So how does the little tot respond? He simply smiles at his older sister. “Oh, you’re so cute, I love your cute little smiles,” she says in between sobs. After she leans over to give him a kiss on the head she adds, “Oh my gosh, I want you to stay little!” #Sob.
Aww…no wonder why so many people can relate! Who hasn’t wanted time to stand still as we admire the beauty of life, only to raise our fist to the sky and curse its passing?
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we could use a tissue...
