I could not get through watching this video without laughing.  It's so sad because this 2-year old little girl from Bridgewater, N.J. is just trying to wish her mommy a Happy Birthday.  But halfway through she gets really emotional thinking about how much she misses her mom sometimes.

The blonde cutie, named Claire, lists the reasons why she loves her mom, like “You’re beautiful,” and,  “You’re the best cook.”

But Claire threw her dad Dan Konkel, who was behind the camera, for a loop when she started thinking about the days her mom is at work.

“I started talking about when Mommy’s not here,” Konkel tells ABC News. “I said, ‘She works so hard, doesn’t she?’ She was like, ‘Mommy works so hard,’ almost on the verge of tears, and I was on the other side of the camera in the living room like, ‘Oh my goodness.’ It just poured out.”

Good luck topping this gift next year.
