Meg Sullivan of Tacoma, Washington, might be 18 years old, but that doesn’t mean her dad Tom doesn’t still prepare her school lunches. He’s been doing it since Meg was in kindergarten, and he even peels her oranges for her, but when she opened her lunchbox on her last day of high school, it wasn’t a peeled orange she found inside, but a folded up piece of paper.

“It’s time baby girl,” read the note, packed into a plastic bag with two oranges with their skin still intact. “I thought it was just going to be a letter saying ‘Happy last day of school!’ or something,” Meg told Buzzfeed. “So when I opened it I couldn’t help but smile.” Why? Because inside the note was a printed page from Wikihow that contained complete instructions teaching Meg how to peel her own oranges! Meg tweeted a picture of the note and it’s since been shared over 110k times and liked by almost half a million people.

“I’m his last kiddo leaving for college this year, and you can tell he’s really really sad about it,” said Meg. “He has always gone above and beyond and is easily the cutest and most caring man I’ll ever know. It’s gonna break my heart to leave him for college, no doubt.” We don’t know about peeling oranges, but we definitely feel like somebody’s been peeling onions around here…
