Now the adorable fun begins! Julie leads Sarang by the hand to her first manicure appointment. She lets Sarang pick out whatever color she wants. Sarang chooses the most vibrant hot pink on the chart of color options. While getting her nails done, Sarang sits patiently and nods that she is happy.
Once she’s done, Sarang runs down the street screaming, “I winner!”
Now back in bed for the night, Sarang cannot stop staring at her new, beautiful nails. “I love you,” says Julie. “I love you,” Sarang replies, still transfixed on her manicure.
The comments section could not hold back their adoration for Sarang and the Children’s Day date.
“Oh she’s so precious,” wrote one touched user.
“Omg she’s grown up so much I can’t handle it,” lamented a longtime follower.
Some commenters mentioned that their countries also celebrate Children’s Day.
“I LOVE KIDS DAY WE HAVE IT IN POLAND TOO,” commented an enthusiastic user.
“It was Día del Niño a few days ago. I had no idea other cultures celebrated it,” marveled one commenter.
