— -- One little girl got herself out of hot water after explaining to her father in an adorable video why she broke the household rule of painting her Barbie with nail polish.

"Sophie is one of those fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-girl, where she's not worried about getting in trouble," dad Joseph Nagorski of Parma, Ohio, told ABC News. "She just wants to make her story heard."

Nagorski, a father of three, said it was over a month ago when he came home from his teaching job to his wife telling him his daughter Sophia, 3, had a story to share.

"[My wife] pulled me aside and said 'You are going to laugh hysterically when you hear it. Joe, you should tape this,'" Nagorski recalled. "I said, 'No, this is silly.'"

Nagorski soon found out that Sophie had broken his rules and painted her Barbie using her non-toxic nail polish in her bedroom, instead of outside where she is normally allowed to use it.

When Nagorski asked his toddler why she did what she did, Sophie, with tears in her eyes, passionately responded: "Because she told me to! She says it 100 times. All my dolls say that want me to paint all their nails."

"When I said 'Who should get in trouble?' right away, she said 'Me,'" Nagorski said. "But she had a rebuttal as to how she understands it's her fault, but she's trying to change the blame. She's very smart. She's as quick as a whip."

After some coaxing from family members, Nagorki's wife April uploaded the video of Sophie to YouTube on Sept. 30.

Since then, it's racked up over 890,000 views.

"Something coming out of a simple video is just mind blowing to me," Nagorski said. "I just think that overall, my daughter is one of the best things that's happened to me in my life. Without her, the day would be boring. She's got this diva mentality. She's whatever you see in the video multiplied by 10 and it's something I'm very, very lucky to see everyday."
