Your kids are going to do things they shouldn’t. It helps if you married someone with a sense of humour. pic.twitter.com/VVTstejBJO— Eric Massicotte (@DrMassicotte) November 14, 2017
When kids do something completely cringe-worthy, most parents' initial reaction is to completely freak, but Eric and Kim Massicotte's response to their 6-year-old son, Ryan, drawing a house on the wall is all too hilarious — and frankly deserves a standing ovation and bonus points for creativity. The dad posted a hysterical photo to Twitter showing his son's handiwork with the caption: "Your kids are going to do things they shouldn't. It helps if you married someone with a sense of humour."
So how did this brilliant parenting hack come to fruition? It all started when Ryan decided to fulfill his duty as the oldest kid by showing his little brother Peter exactly how to draw the perfect house . . . on the wall. Eric discovered just what his wife Kim to commemorate their son's artistic expression after getting home from work one night, and you could say it's certainly museum-worthy. Right next to Ryan's drawing was a sign that read: "Interrupted House, 2017. Marker on latex paint. Gifted to his parents, by surprise. Nov 13th." And to top it all off, Kim went as far as to frame it. Nice touch.
So far, the tweet has amassed 228,000 favorites and 113,000 "likes" with no signs of slowing down. And as expected, other parents are bowing down to the couple's creativity:

Full disclosure: we totally wish we thought of doing this first.
