"So this just happened," Ben texted his wife Stephanie, attaching a photo of their poor little son. "I just pulled over and am trying not to throw up myself."

The hopeless (yet hilarious) situation has since gone viral, garnering more than 13 000 views since the screenshots were shared online.

We can't help but wonder what Stephanie's reaction was when she eventually texted him back.
