Summer’s over, which means kids are heading back to school and mommy gets to enjoy some time to herself—but not everyone’s ready to let go.

Meet 4-year-old Andrew Macias, who was interviewed by KTLA 5 News on his way to the first day of pre-kindergarten. The youngster looks ready to go with a smile on his face, exclaiming “Yes!” when asked if he’s excited for school. But when he tries to deny that he’ll miss his mom, he did what most of us still do when we have to say goodbye to our mothers—break into tears.

Never in my life have I felt more in sync with a 4-year-old. But don’t worry about Andrew, the youngster apparently got a hug from his mom off-camera after realizing how much he was going to miss her.
