Sister loves baby brother too much to let him grow up

July 29, 2014 at 9:16 PM ET

Little Sadie, 5, is grappling with the big questions at an early age. In this YouTube video, she heartbreakingly tells her family she doesn't want her little brother to grow up.

"He's so cute!" she sobs, giving him a hug. (And she's right.)

Video: A 5-year-old girl was captured crying on video, saying she can’t stand the thought of her brother growing up. “I want him to stay little,” she sobbed. Carson Daly reports from the Orange Room.

She's also thinking about just how short life is for all of us, big sisters included. "And I don't want to die when I'm a hundred!" she sobs. 

Fortunately, little brother's cuteness just about saves the day, as he gives her a little smile and she can't help but give him one right back.

We asked TODAY viewer to share their examples of #BrotherlyLove or #SisterlyLove on Facebook, and the response was overwhelming — and adorable!
