Everyone Should Take A Lesson From This Adorably Grateful Kid

The little boy in the video above was super excited to open his present for "Día del Niño," or Children's Day. The present was flat and rectangular -- a package that, while still wrapped, could have been easily mistaken for an iPad or another high tech gift.

But when he opened it, it was just a wooden cutting board. Probably not what he'd been expecting, and definitely not something he'd been hoping for. His parents were pranking him -- and even though he didn't know it yet, his spirits didn't waiver.

He remained the grateful boy that his parents had raised him to be.

First, he read his card. According to Uproxx, it read, "For you to eat barbecue with your knife. We love you a lot." He completely lit up.

Then he inspected his new board, giving it the attention due a present purchased with him in mind.

He gave his family a hug, thanking them for thinking of him. You can really tell how much he appreciates them.

And then, the jig was up -- and his expression when he realizes what his actual present is is pretty amazing.

This is how you know you're raising your kids right. We're sure his parents are very, very proud.
