Awaiting your loved one's arrival from a different country, a different state, from work or from school is a heart-pounding moment. Once they arrive, we can expect our hearts to be filled with thrill, love and excitement. Eventually, one would assume this feeling to either die down with time or only get ignited when we see a loved one after a very long time. However, this wasn't the case for one little girl. Since her youngest daughter learned to walk, Robin Whitsett has been posting videos of her youngest daughter, Loxley Whitsett, waiting for one or both of her older sisters, Lily and Lilah. The videos show how, whenever her older sisters came home from school, the little one would run through the driveway towards the school bus and hug her sisters.

She has been anticipating their arrival regardless of whether the weather is hot, rainy or cold. One particular video has gained more than 49,243 likes since being reuploaded on June 10, 2022, on Instagram. She wrote over the footage that her young daughter "waits for her sister no matter the weather." Whitsett shared with Newsweek that the tradition helped Loxley cope with the return of her older siblings to school after summer vacation.

"Lox had a hard time adjusting to her older siblings going back to school after summer, so her waiting for them every day sorta just helped her cope with missing them so much," she said. "She started watching for their bus as soon as she could walk." Despite her daughters' age difference, she says they "genuinely" enjoy spending time together. She expressed surprise that her videos had become so popular and "touched the hearts" of so many people.

"It touched my heart so much the first video I took when Lox was a baby walking out and the girls were still on the same bus, I just needed everyone to see that family bond and cry with me about it," Whitsett added, "I'm so fortunate they are all so very close and it is such a beautiful real reaction they have seeing the love they have for one another. I was shocked to see how much people valued the videos. I knew they were sweet, but it's also everyday life for us," Whitsett told The Epoch Times.

Viewers did in fact, adore this relationship and this ritual. "The tuck under the mini umbrella and running together after the most adorable hugs bless them," commented @deekamel. "That's truly what family is all about," wrote @anon.

Before Loxley could walk properly, she would watch from a window or be carried by her mother. She went outside as soon as she could walk. Lilah and Lily were both delighted to see their younger sister waiting for them when they returned and Whitsett began filming their heartwarming interactions because "it was so sweet."

"Her personality is so loving; she's very interactive with her older siblings. To cope with missing them, we began to watch them get off the bus. If it's raining or snowing, she's even more excited to be waiting outside since she can use an umbrella, wear rain boots, or play in the snow," Whitsett shared. "Their favorite activity is having a 'dance party,' where my middle daughter makes a snack board for everyone, and they turn on a disco light and dance to music."
