Shoveling snow is the worst part about winter and a 14-month-old in Canada learned it the hard way as he was helping his dad shovel snow in Clarenville, Newfoundland.

In an 8 second video uploaded to Facebook by mom Samantha Burke-Balsom, toddler Rory is seen pushing a snow shovel along the driveway in front of the house. However, the tiny boy quickly encounters a snag that, if it happened to any of us we would probably stand up and start cussing.

While shoveling, Rory hits a hard patch of snow, causing his shovel to stop moving. Rory dramatically tips over and lands head-first on the ground.

Though, not to be defeated, his dad comes up right behind him and effortlessly lifts him back onto his feet. Rory grabs his shovel and continues on his path.
