Remember that terrifying feeling of looking up at your parents after making a big mistake? It just recently happened to a little boy from Minneapolis who spilled a slushie all over the floor of a Target store. The way his dad reacted, however, is making the entire Internet slow clap with utter respect.
Though the boy and his father remain unnamed, the story of their touching moment made it to Facebook via Kalynne Marie, a Minneapolis mom who witnessed it all from a table at Starbucks. “As soon as the father started helping his son clean up, I opened the Notes app on my phone and wrote what he said word for word, because I was so inspired by how he was handling the situation,” Marie told Babble. Her post has since gone viral, and has been shared more than 58 thousand times.

We even got a selfie together to share! Thank you so much!”
