With the 2016 election comes the exciting prospect of electing the first female president of the United States. But it also signals the end of Barack Obama’s presidency.

On July 26, Oregon mom Andrea Tomlin posted a Facebook video of her 4-year-old daughter Abella crying at this realization. When the mom asks why she’s so sad, Abella responds, “Because I miss Barack Obama.”

Tomlin explained in the caption that her daughter overheard her listening to the speeches at the Democratic National Convention. “[S]he is pretty devastated that Barack Obama is leaving the White House... who isn’t?!” the mom wrote.

In the video, Abella agrees with her mom that Hillary Clinton would also make a good president, but that still doesn’t stop her tears.

Don’t worry, Abella. It’s been a difficult election season for all of us.
