The woman can be heard in the background saying, “What’s the matter? Are you ready to go night-night?”
Jacobs’s daughter started to grumble slightly and soon became distracted by her shadow.
What started out as fascination soon became an annoyance for the kid. Supposedly, she didn’t like what she was seeing.
She became cranky and tried to run away from her shadow by heading in the other direction. Although, with the sun blazing at the time, she had no escape from her dark friend.

Seconds later, as she ran, she suddenly tumbled backward and fell on the ground, which even prompted louder bawls and screams.
The poor little girl was probably scared and irritated by her shadow, but online users couldn’t help but find her actions very adorable.
