So this might be the strongest case for wanting to have a daughter over a son. This little girl is Mana Ashida, a child actor in Japan who came into prominence after starring in a popular television drama called Mother. I haven’t seen all that but this gotta be her best work yet. Seriously, the cuteness in this video could make the hardest, most cold-blooded criminal want to go out and plant seeds for flowers with smiley faces on ’em.

Oh, look, a compilation of her commercials.
