One dad out there is in serious trouble: A video of his daughter accusing him of stealing her money is making the rounds on YouTube and Reddit.

Complicating this family squabble even more is the fact that the daughter in question is only 3 years old.

In this adorable video, Nova desperately tries to explain to her father that he took her money—all “twenty-eight-nine” dollars of it. Ever the multitasker, she makes sure to punctuate her polite yet firm accusations while paying attention to her coloring set. Of course, she could be doing this just in case dad decides to swipe that as well.

Young Nova certainly has a bright future ahead of her. We’re just not sure if it will be in espionage, accounting, or painting. Perhaps all three.
