We'd bet that a lot of parents out there are bound to relate to this hilariously wholesome accident. Apparently the whole family ended up getting accidentally "sleeptrained" by a strangely adorable little stuffed worm toy thing. Whatever works, I guess.

This parent had a rough night of sleep, and proceeded to fall into such a mental fog that they forgot what day it was, and literally forget that their kid was at school.

Dad Gives Kids Cash For Christmas In A Creative Way

This dad wasn't going to settle for giving his kids cash in the old fashioned way of slipping a few dollar bills in a card, or maybe even just giving them cash. No, he insisted on getting more creative with things. Queue up the awesome packaging that made these cash gifts look like gifts he bought in the store.

There's a lot of ungrateful and toxic behavior on display in this lover's quarrel. The poor guy claims he's been supporting his family, while hard at work through this historically difficult time, and then when he buys his love a nice ($3K) engagement ring he gets chewed out by her family for not spending enough.
