We often condemn our restless children for not being respectful during family dinners, long ceremonies and extended trips, which frequently encourages choruses of “are we there yet?”

For this young girl, a Passover dinner at the White House with President Barack Obama is no exception. Obama began an annual Passover dinner at the White House back in his 2008 campaign, and has made it an ongoing tradition ever since.

On the eve of the Passover dinner this past year, Claudia Moser, two-year-old daughter of journalist Laura Moser, threw herself down on the White House’s Red Room carpet right beside Obama.

The Commander-in-Chief cleverly (and luckily) snapped a photo of this monumental moment, which was released by the toddler’s uncle, Benjamin Moser, on Thursday.

Moser, a New York Times columnist, tweeted the photograph out with the caption, “This might be the best picture ever: my niece Claudia throwing a fit at Passover.”

The photo has obviously gone viral, and has garnered a significant amount of responses in the twittersphere.

Obama, however, appears unfazed by the event. This could potentially be because of his experience dealing with temper tantrums with his own daughters, Malia and Natasha.
