Dad Posts Ad for 'Toddler Alarm Clock' So That You, Too, Can Be Awakened at 5:30 a.m. Every Day

Dad jokingly lists toddler for sale as

Little kids are great and all, but sometimes, they can really be a pain in the you know what. Kevin Davies is a UK dad of three who knows firsthand just how tiresome it can be to keep up with tots. His "toddler alarm clock" ad -- featuring his 1-year-old son for sale -- has gone viral for the funniest reasons.


 ... It's a joke, and one that will likely resonate with parents of toddlers everywhere!

Archie might look super cute, but this little boy is only a year old, and he doesn't let his parents sleep past 5:30 a.m. Like clockwork, he gets up at the crack of dawn and heads to the kitchen, where he hopes to score his daily slice of toast. Too bad Mom and Dad aren't up just yet, but honestly, people, what toddler cares about his or her parents' sleeping schedule?

Hoping to gain a few laughs, Kevin posted an ad in the Liverpool Bargain Bay classifieds that's received a ton of laughs.

Here's what the ad says:

Priceless alarm need to set ur alarm for work at 6am because u will already be up at 5.30 am with this little one. Breakfast? No problem, he will have you making toast at 5.35 am to start your day on a nice full belly.

Obviously, Dad isn't being serious, and doesn't want to sell his kid. All he wants is a good night's rest that doesn't involve making breakfast super early in the morning.

But, just look at Archie. He's such a cutie pie! A face like that might make me go to bed early so I can have his toast ready, haha.

Do you want jam or jelly, baby?
