(RNN) - Ah, children. As the old saying goes, "When they're little, they step on your toes. When they're grown, they step on your heart."

Also, when they're little, they might walk through wet concrete.

"This little girl was trying to go see her mom and dad, so she came from upstairs to the basement to find them," leaving her footprints behind her, Porter Concrete Construction Co. of Cleveland, TN, said in a Facebook post on Friday.

The 2-year-old girl wandered down from upstairs amid her parents' home remodeling project.

Johnathan Porter, owner of the construction company also works with a search and rescue group. He said he had just returned to the job from a car accident and wanted to check how the new concrete in the basement was firming up when he encountered the little girl.

"I looked and about 25 feet away from me, I see this child standing dead center,'' he said. “She had a look of awe on her face like she didn’t know what to do.” 

 Porter said he's seen where dogs, cats, bugs and even a few adults have walked through wet concrete on accident, but what he saw on Friday was something different.

"I’ve never seen anything quite like that. That was just a priceless moment,” he said. 

Though her mom and dad were understandably a little upset, Porter told them to just take a picture.

The girl was retrieved from the concrete and washed off using some dishwashing detergent and soap. 

Brad Millaway said on Facebook that it was his home's basement that was being poured, and his daughter, Izzadora Millaway, age 2, walked through the concrete.

The concrete company repaired the trail of footprints.

"They were still there. They hadn't finished it completely yet," Millaway commented on Facebook.

He also said that they left a set of footprints of the girl and her 5-year-old sibling in the concrete as a memento.
