No matter how far little Kayla reaches -- or how high she tries to jump -- she just can't catch the moon.
That doesn't make her attempts any less endearing.
In this swoon-worthy YouTube video, the pink-clad, stuffed-animal-toting toddler converses with her dad, who encourages her to reach for the moon before eventually agreeing with her that it's a lost cause, and she should say "goodbye."
Since being uploaded on Friday, the clip -- which denmoff77 posted alongside links to the Lunar and Planetary Institute and its moon-themed site, MyMoonspace.com -- has racked up almost 300,000 views.
"She will go on and on about the moon and not being able to get it whether I ask or not. I usually just 'okay' her until she stops. But this time I played around with her a bit. She enjoys it. She's 2."
He also thanked other Redditors for their lunar picture book and gadget suggestions -- not to mention the apparent offer of a NASA facilities tour. It's not a trip to the moon itself... but hey, it's something.
