When Twitter user Natalia (@_mommanat) posted an adorable video of her daughter Clarissa meeting the challenge of properly stacking colorful nesting cups together on March 4, she couldn’t have expected that the cute video would go viral. The wholesome video represented a milestone for Clarissa that was far more important than simply stacking cup, and A LOT of people on the Internet, including celebrities, were quick to show shower the little girl with a delgue praise.
She Did It!
In the video, Clarissa is playing with a set of nesting cups. It takes her about thirty seconds to get it right. At first, she stacks a few of the smallest cups into the biggest cups.
When she tries to get the medium sized cups to fit, she realizes that she put the smaller cups in too soon. She rearranges the order several times before she finally gets it right. When she does, Clarissa and her mother erupt into celebratory screams. Clarissa even does a little jig.
Why It Matters
As Clarissa’s mother explained, the toddler has failed to reach a few developmental milestones. She has been going to therapy to help her catch up with average two-year-olds. In addition to the therapy, her family has been working with her at home. Obviously, everyone’s hard work has paid off. Watch the victory for yourself!

As can be seen in the video, Natalia didn’t help Clarissa at all. She reached this thrilling milestone all on her own. While having lots of fun, Clarissa is developing her critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
