The Adorable Video
The video is about thirty seconds long altogether. Little Clarissa is playing with nesting cups and trying to set in one another by order of size. In the beginning, she stacks a number of the smallest cups into the biggest ones.
It’s in the middle where she makes a small mistake. But don’t worry – she notices and rearranges them several times until everything fits together perfectly. And when they do, both little Clarissa and her mother erupt into joy. It’s heartwarming to see the small girl so happy that she dances, while her mother can’t contain her happiness.
Why this is A Big Milestone for Clarissa
The child’s mother has gone on to explain that her toddler has failed to reach a few developmental milestones. She has been attending therapy to catch up to her average two-year-old peers. Along with therapy, her family has been giving her a helping hand back at home.
And the hard work has paid off. As you can see in the video, mom Natalia didn’t have to help her one bit. She’s done it all on her own, and reached an important milestone. While having lots of fun, she’s working on her problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Way to go, Clarissa!
The Internet Reacts
The internet, for all its flaws, has a huge soft spot for stories like these. The cute cup stacking video has gone viral, with over 900 000 likes on the post. It seems like the entire internet is united in celebrating the achievement of this adorable, hard-working little girl.
