Dec. 22 (UPI) -- An Ohio couple brought Christmas cheer to their son's teachers by gifting them bottles of wine bearing photos of "the reason you drink" -- their son.
Mary and Paul Sommers of Beavercreek had special labels printed bearing the image of their son, eighth-grader Jake, and affixed them to the bottles of wine they gave his teachers at Ascension School in Kettering.
"Our Child Might Be The Reason you Drink So Enjoy This Bottle On Us," the labels read.
The wine bottles went viral after a photo was tweeted by Daniel Joseph "DJ" Sommers, a sophomore at Ohio State University and Jake's oldest sibling.
"My parents always get our elementary school teachers a present around Christmas. Typically something small like a candle or flower to say thank you. This year they got them bottles of wine & replaced the labels with their own with my brother on them... Happy holidays," DJ Sommers tweeted.
Mary Sommers said the wine bottles seemed like an appropriate gift.
"How many coffee mugs does a teacher need," she told WHIO-TV. "But who doesn't need a glass of wine after teaching a kid like mine?"
The mother said Jake isn't a bad kid, but he is "that kid" -- a trait he received from his mom.
"My four older siblings were good kids and it was hard to live up to that, so I didn't try," Mary Sommers said. "[Jake] always has something to say. He's that kid."
She said the teachers appreciated the gift.
"None of the teachers were shocked by it," she told Buzzfeed.
Jake Sommers acknowledged his role in making his teachers work a little harder.
"I guess my teachers deserve [the wine]," he said.
