‘Love is an expression. For kids to know that they’re loved, they need to see it, they need to experience it so then they can show it to others as well.’ Children get ᴇɴᴠɪᴏᴜs and ᴊᴇᴀʟᴏᴜs sometimes. Especially when they are little and ᴇxᴘᴇʀɪᴇɴᴄᴇ ᴀ ʟᴀᴄᴋ of attention. Oftentimes it ʜᴀᴘᴘᴇɴs with siblings, but sometimes love between parents can ᴀFFᴇᴄᴛ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴏɴᴇs in strange ways too.
But recently, a clip of a girl ʙᴜʀsᴛɪɴɢ ɪɴᴛᴏ ᴛᴇᴀʀs every time her ᴘᴀʀᴇɴᴛs ᴋɪssᴇᴅ was sᴜᴅᴅᴇɴʟʏ sᴘʀᴇᴀᴅ ᴡɪᴅᴇʟʏ and ‘sᴛᴏʀᴍᴇᴅ’ the ᴏɴʟɪɴᴇ ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴜɴɪᴛʏ. When one baby saw her ᴘᴀʀᴇɴᴛs ᴋɪssɪɴɢ in Fʀᴏɴᴛ ᴏF ʜᴇʀ, she ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ ᴅᴏᴡɴ ɪɴ ᴀ Fɪᴛ ᴏF ᴛᴇᴀʀs. Thankfully, the ᴛᴇᴀʀs sᴜʙsɪᴅᴇᴅ when 5-month-old Ella’s ᴘᴀʀᴇɴᴛs ᴋɪssᴇᴅ her on her cheeks. The video of this little lady ᴄʀʏɪɴɢ has reached more than 4 million viewers after her dad, Matt Hanneken had uploaded it on youtube. We all know that babies are cute and their videos have the potential to go ᴠɪʀᴀʟ, but the sᴇᴄʀᴇᴛ here is a little less obvious.
Ella is not just a cute baby, she is a baby whose feelings get ʜᴜʀᴛ ᴠᴇʀʏ ᴇᴀsɪʟʏ. Accordingly, in the clip, the girl smiles brightly and brightly when her parents hold her. However, when the two parents were cheek to cheek and lips to lips, ‘Fᴀᴛʜᴇʀ’s Fᴏʀᴍᴇʀ ʟᴏᴠᴇʀ’ immediately changed his face and ᴡᴇᴀᴋʟʏ ᴘʀᴏᴛᴇsᴛᴇᴅ by making a cute smile. The most interesting thing about this is that the moment her ᴘᴀʀᴇɴᴛs ᴋɪssᴇᴅ her, Ella absolutely forgot about the tears. And then again, she ᴄʀɪᴇᴅ when her ᴘᴀʀᴇɴᴛs ᴋɪssᴇᴅ each other. Ella’s parents repeated this trick 3 times in the video and her reaction was a little bit different each time. The first time they kissed, Ella seemed confused and it took her some time to understand what was going on and then she started crying. The second time, she just whined a little and burst into tears immediately after the third.
Proud father Matt Hanneken said that it’s a ʙᴇᴅᴛɪᴍᴇ ʀɪᴛᴜᴀʟ that he and his wife, Krissy, have with each of their kids. The two are also parents to Tyler, 8, and Carter, 5. They would kind of ᴋɪss them at the same time every night before going to sleep, and [the boys] would get ᴀ ᴋɪᴄᴋ ᴏᴜᴛ of it and they’d laugh and they’d love it . The Glen Burnie, Maryland, father noted that his daughter Ella also seemed to love the routine, ᴇxᴄᴇᴘᴛ for on this FᴀᴛᴇFᴜʟ day on Oct. 3. The caption to the video says, ‘Our baby girl got very sᴀᴅ when Mommy and Daddy shared a ᴋɪss in Fʀᴏɴᴛ ᴏF ʜᴇʀ. She’s ᴊᴇᴀʟᴏᴜs for sure!’. And this is most likely the truth. Children this young need all the attention they can get. That means you can’t look in another direction without talking, spending time together, or ᴋɪssɪɴɢ ᴇᴀᴄʜ ᴏᴛʜᴇʀ!
Matt Hanneken said he’s glad the video of his daughter went ᴠɪʀᴀʟ because it’s important that parents teach their kids how to love. “Love is an expression. For kids to know that they’re loved, they need to see it, they need to experience it so then they can show it to others as well.”
