Kids do the funniest things sometimes.

"She was walking around just making checks and looking at stuff. Literal checks," he said.

"In short: it's completely random, and she literally made check marks in a row. She kept saying stuff like, 'this place has a lot of check marks, so that's good.'"

"She said she doesn't know. It just came to her," Tony said. "The more checks, the better. That's all I could figure out"

He added that the store's employees didn't seem to mind.

"Nobody questioned her either, they looked and kind of smiled," he said.

Like any good dad, Tony snapped some photos of his daughter's new hobby. He posted them to Twitter to share with friends, and they have since been retweeted more than 24,000 times.

My daughter brings a checklist to stores now and just makes random checks. It makes everyone uncomfortable.

Everyone thought that Bella's new passion was super cute.

@bottlerocket13 she's sassy and adorable!

And said she clearly had a bright future ahead.

@bottlerocket13 @petty_marshall future grocery chain supervisor or secret shopper.

Good thinking, Bella.

@bottlerocket13 My mother has always insisted you can go anywhere you want to in this world if you just carry a clipboard.

Others also shared funny things their kids had done that were also pretty random.

@bottlerocket13 @ismat when my son was 5 he continued to wear his policeman Halloween costume for two months while writing people "tickets."

Kids and clipboards, man.

@bottlerocket13 My kid is doing TV same!! She's doing "roll call". She even tied a pencil to the clipboard for authenticity.

Tony said he's had a taste of online fame before, as he sometimes makes Vines with his family. However, he said that it has been nice to get such a nice response.

"[It is] all positive comments," he said. "It's cool."

He added: "[It's] not the most exciting story, but it's funny!"
