Kids are hilarious. Especially when they aren’t yours. This poor mother probably isn’t laughing about her son’s incredibly cruel-but-honest birthday wish.

“Make a wish!” you can hear her saying after he blows out the candles. Then, without missing a beat, her son makes his wish.

“I wish … for a new mommy!”

Awkward laughing ensues. His mom, who probably just spent days planning that birthday party, tries to play it cool. If you listen closely, though, you can hear the sound of her heart shattering into a million pieces. (Yes, that can happen.) For her sake, we hope she wrapped things up and ended the horrible day with a tall glass of wine.
