Watch this brother comfort his little sister, who’s scared of the car wash

We’ve all been there—the floor is lava and car washes are scary. This 2-year-old little girl became very scared as her mom’s car approached the car wash but, thankfully, she had her big brother (4 years old) by her side to reassure her that everything was going to be all right.

Their mom, Alyssa Price, caught their adorable exchange on video, and it has since gotten over 28,000 views online.

Apparently, the family goes through car washes rather frequently, so this was nothing new to Declan. But Raleigh is typically asleep when they drive through to get the car cleaned. This time, however, she was very much awake and ready to go back home and avoid the car wash entirely. But with a line of cars behind them, that was not an option. So through the car wash they went! Declan was there for his younger sister Raleigh in her time of need. What are big bros for, after all?

Watch as Declan expertly handles this situation:


Declan tries to calm her by saying, “Don’t cry!” Then he tells her, ““We are going to get home very fast — we won’t die.” How sweet!

As for their mom, she’s just glad she caught the moment on camera. “It was just one of those moments,” she told Today. And it really was, as she puts it, “Too cute not to post.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Raleigh and Declan have been absolutely adorable. Their mom frequently films them in the car, playing and more, so be sure to check out the pair on YouTube.

The mom even has a funny video of what happens when you give a child a Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks. The moms out there will definitely understand this.
