To get a laugh out of his dear mother back home, college student Dalton Ross sent her a life-sized cardboard cutout of himself while he was away studying at Belmont University in London.
And while we're sure his mom, Susan Talley, got a kick out of seeing her "son" arrive in the mail, she also decided to have a little fun with the whole thing. (Go, Susan!)
We're so glad she did! Hilariously, she began sending him photos of her own, like this one of his alter-ego reading before bed...
...and of him spending time with his other family members, who we're sure missed the real Dalton.
She also took him on errands, and for a visit to his doctor.
Susan even made sure he had a good Easter Sunday...
...and some fun nights out, including a basketball game. (See him there in the stands?!)
Dear Dalton: You totally just got one-upped by your mom!
Jokingly sent my mom a cutout of myself while I'm studying abroad. She seems to be entertaining herself with it.
