  • ‘It helps if you married someone with a sense of humour’, wrote a dad who was so amused by his wife’s reaction to their son drawing on the white walls of their home, that he had to share it on social media.

    Eric Massicotte is a neurosurgeon, Associate Professor and Medical Director who lives in Toronto, Canada.

    One of his tweets has gone viral this week, and won his wife praise from thousands of strangers, after he shared her reaction to discovering their young son had drawn on the white wall of their home in permanent pen.

    Taking to Twitter earlier this week, Dr Massicotte tweeted: ‘Your kids are going to do things they shouldn’t. It helps if you married someone with a sense of humour’, along with a series of three pictures.

    The first shows a white wall in his home with a drawing of a green house added to it by his six-year-old son.

    The second reveals his wife’s reaction to the drawing. Instead of trying to scrub the drawing away or paint over it, Dr Massicotte’s wife turned the doodle into a work of art by framing it and even adding a description label as you would find in a museum or gallery.

    The label states that the work of art was done by R. C. Massicotte, born 2011, and has been named ‘Interrupted House’.

    An additional comment at the bottom reads: ‘Gifted to his parents by surprise. Nov 13th.’

    The tweet has been shared over 100,000 times, and received 279,000 like to date. Many people have praised the witty response to a classic parenting problem, while others shared their own stories on twitter in response.

    Other parents share their own experiences and photos of times when their children had decided to draw on the walls of their home.
