It's time to take a time out from all the news of COVID, vaccines, masks and politics with a reminder that there are still joys out there.

Let's all thank the family of Texas Rangers pitcher Jharel Cotton. His 19-month-old daughter, Zola, was watching her dad's team and got to experience cotton candy for the first time and the reaction is too cool.

The video was taken by Zola's mom, Emma. At first it looked like little Zola thought it was a pillow and wasn't sure what to do with the cotton candy, but she seemed to like the taste of it.

Zola's dad told mlb.com he's been "shocked" by the number of views and likes of his daughter's video .

“Her expression was priceless,” Cotton said. “Her expression, everything, it's infectious. It's amazing. When they come to the game, it's like a different energy that they bring so much. Having them around, I love it.”

Cotton said he was shocked that the video, which now has almost 800,000 likes and 3.5 million views on TikTok, was gaining so much traction. The account @MeettheCottons has 76.2k followers on the app.

So, what is your reaction to this cute video of the daughter of a Texas Rangers pitcher? With so much going on in the world, it's nice to get a reminder of little things and little children who have such a different perspective of a world that is brand new to them.
