Kids grow up too quickly, don’t they? One moment they’re safe in our arms, fully dependent on mom or dad, and the next minute they’re out conquering the world.
Anne Frank is credited as saying, “Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.”
Still, we worry who our children will become. Will they grow to do right? To be kind? To show love and forgiveness?
Will they help their fellow man? Will they meet a spouse worthy of them? The anxiety over our kids never ends, even after they pass the 18-year mark and head off to college.
One mom from Texas can rest assured that her little girl is growing up to be quite the little defender. When it comes to saving the day, Julianna has her mom’s back.
A video shared by Storyful shows 3-year-old Julianna marching around her kitchen with a spatula in hand. Her mother, Jessica Wynn, is behind the camera.
At the video’s onset, it’s almost difficult to understand what the little girl is saying. But her passion is perfectly clear.
What in the world could she passionate about? Why, protecting her mama, of course! “See bugs!” she says. “I gonna get you!”
With the most serious expression ever, Julianna tells her mother not to jump. Jessica can be heard in the background, holding back giggles and interpreting what her daughter is saying.
“Okay, I won’t jump,” Jessica says. “Are you gonna save me?” It is then Julianna who jumps backward. It’s only when Jessica pans the camera around that we see what is to fear.
A little cricket beside a trash can. And Julianna is determined to save her mother from a horrible fate — death by cricket.
This is too adorable and funny not to watch more than once. You won’t be able to get enough of little Julianna and her superhero spatula-wielding powers.
“You got it, Ju Ju?” Jessica asks. Her daughter’s response is priceless. “Don’t worry, Mom. I got this,” the 3-year-old says.
Jessica is certainly correct when she calls Julianna her “hero.” While this video is hilarious, it also shows that this little girl has been taught some good values early on.
“Julianna is a tough and spunky girl who tries to take care of it herself as I watch in the background,” Jessica told Storyful.
There’s no doubt Julianna loves her mother so much. Why else would she put herself in the line of cricket, and risk being jumped on? Well done, Jessica! You’re raising a superhero of a girl!
