An Ohio couple took an unconventional route to thank their kid's teachers during the holidays.

WHIO reports as a joke and a thank you, Mary and Paul Sommers gifted their son Jake’s teachers with bottles of white wine with personalized labels reading: “Our child might be the reason you drink so enjoy this bottle on us.”

Photos of the gifts went viral when their older son, Ohio State University student DJ Sommers, tweeted about the gifts involving his little brother.


Mary told WHIO her son is not a bad kid, but he is “that kid” at school. She admittedly said when she attended the same school, she was "that kid."

“My four older siblings were good kids and it was hard to live up to that, so I didn’t try,” Mary recalled. “(Jake) always has something to say. He’s that kid.”
