“So close you can almost taste it.” Perhaps never has this phrase been more appropriate than in this hilariously adorable video of a toddler coming so close and yet so far from getting a sweet, sweet taste of dad’s ice cream.

We feel this tot’s struggle, because if there’s one thing you don’t mess around with, it’s ice cream, but clearly pops has absolutely no shame.

Her dedication to snagging the tasty treat is what has us in stitches, as her face brightens up with each passing spoonful only to have it just out of reach. “It’s cool, I’ll just get the next one,” she seems to say. But no, you won’t, little one. You won’t get that next one. Because dad’s just a big ol’ jerk.
