For most 3 year olds, trying to dress themselves, making a mess of the peas and carrots at the dinner table, and throwing tantrums when things don’t go their way are things that they would probably be known for. Although the age of 3 is an ideal time for toddlers to start showing basic skills, it’s fair for parents to jump in here and there to lend their little ones a hand.
But, a hand is far from what this 3 year old needed when delivering a baby lamb! With her mother busy recording the entire scene the toddler took matters into her own hands (obviously with some instructions from mom). Watch out for how seamlessly she delivers the animal?
Children are known to show care and compassion because they act on instincts and interests—put a set of building blocks in front of them and they’ll ambitiously build you a castle. So, why not try them with an animal in need? The little girl patiently follows her mother’s instructions on ensuring that the baby lamb is delivered healthy and unharmed.
There was no disgust or distaste at the sight of the insides of the sheep let alone any blood she may have gotten on herself in the process. She does mention that “it’s a bit slippery” but then again, which kid doesn’t speak his/her mind?
The best part of the video comes right after the delivery, when she says, “I got it!” and gets busy cleaning the animal. You see the child genuinely excited and happy with the work she’s done without an expectation of a reward or even a congratulations.
3 year olds may be known for raging tempers and making messes, but they’re definitely some of the most compassionate little humans you’ll find around; and this toddler proved just that. Here is the video of the precious moment!
