Young Paislee Harper of Kentucky turned four recently, and the milestone was kind of a big deal for the little girl, but not in the way you might expect.
Her mom, Andrea, filmed Paislee and her twin brother, Hudson, talking about their upcoming birthdays, in the hopes of preserving some cute memories.
Four. The gravity of that number can be too much for a girl to take.
It became apparent in discussion the event that Paislee is having a hard time grappling with reality of aging, plunging herself into an existential crisis:
"I don't want 4," an overwhelmed Paislee lamented through tears.
She also doesn't want a new car seat, or a new bike. Those aren't going to do a whole lot for her mood. She loved being three years old. Just loved it.
She wants to keep being three, and is so distraught at the concept of no longer being three, she rebuffs her brother's attempts to console her.
Unfortunately for Paislee ... she will also turn 40 someday.
