But after opening the box, he called his mom to find out what was going on. Instead of baked goods or detergent, the box contained garbage. 

"[I said] 'Did you send me the wrong package? Why did you send me this?'" Cox told ABC News.  

Terri informed her son that the box held the trash he was supposed to take out. 

Cox appreciated the prank and tweeted an image of the "care package" contents. 


Cox told ABC News the prank was not unusual. 

"She has a good sense of humor," Cox said. "She's always really caring and she knows what to say at the exact time she should say it. She's a good mom."
