Christmas is just around the corner, and kids the world over are wondering if they made it onto Santa’s nice list. And then there’s Tina Fey’s 4-year-old daughter Penelope, who Mama Tina thinks is a shoe-in for the naughty list.

While visiting with Ellen yesterday, Tina shared that while her older daughter, Alice, is extremely well-behaved, Penelope has a naughty streak.

“I struggle because I worry she will be on the naughty list,” Fey told Ellen. “There are times where I feel she should be on the naughty list, but then if that happens then there will sort of be hell to pay for mommy. I don’t want to be the one there on Christmas morning, be like, ‘Guess what happened? Coal. You got nothing.'”

And to make things worse, Penelope isn’t one to take punishment lightly.

“She is smart. That’s the problem, too,” Fey said. “When she is mad at you, she will just take you apart.”

Penelope! You’ve got less than 10 days until Christmas! It’s time to rack up some nice points before it’s too late!

Tina also dished about maybe-not-legit mall Santas and hosting SNL with her bestie Amy Poehler. Here’s the full interview, and we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that Santa comes through for Penelope.
