KETTERING, Ohio (AP) -- Saying their son's teachers deserve more than a coffee mug for Christmas, an Ohio couple decided to give them bottles of wine with the child's picture on the label.
Beavercreek resident Mary Sommers tells the Dayton Daily News she doubted the teachers needed any more mugs, but, she joked, "who doesn't need a glass of wine after teaching a kid like mine?"
She and her husband, Paul, gave the wine to the teachers at their son Jake's school in Kettering. In addition to a picture of Jake's smiling face, the labels carry a message that says, "Our child might be the reason you drink so enjoy this bottle on us!"
The gifts drew widespread attention after the couple's older son D.J. posted about the wine bottles on Twitter. D.J. calls Jake a class clown but says he is a good kid. "It does definitely give off the illusion that my brother is a big time troublemaker, and that's not entirely true, said D.J. Sommers. "He's definitely not the worst student in the entire world, but he's definitely not the best student in the entire world either."
