Four-year-old Andrew Macias was putting on a brave face on his first day of pre-kindergarten in Los Angeles: He had his hair just right, his backpack on and a smile stretched across his face.

Then a TV reporter caught him in a weak moment.

Courtney Friel of KTLA was interviewing parents and their kids on the first day of school when she asked Macia a simple question.

“Are you gona miss your mom?” Friel asked.

“No!” Macia answered.

And then the tears came.

“This breaks my heart and now I’m anxious about sending my kids to school!” Friel posted on her Instagram. “He was trying to be so brave!”

 

This breaks my heart and now I'm anxious about sending my kids to school! He was trying to be so brave!
