Five-year-old Sadie loves her baby brother, she just doesn’t want him to ever grow up and stop being a baby.

Her parents caught her on film bemoaning the disappointment of aging, wailing, “he’s so cute,” as she delicately kisses her baby brother. He looks on smiling, unaware of the cruel fate time will bestow upon him.

Furthermore, Sadie doesn’t want to grow up either, and, as she puts it, “I don’t wanna die when I’m a hundred-e-ee-ed!” It’s no secret that people love to film their crying kids, but it’s much more watchable when we all sympathize with little Sadie’s plight. We feel you, Sadie.
