Mom decided that her son shouldn’t miss the event and dressed up as dad.
In Texas, single mother, Yvette Vasquez, dressed up in men’s clothes and glued his mustache to go with her son for the morning meeting of students and their fathers.
One morning, Yvette, as usual, brought her 12-year-old son Elijah to school. But that day there were more cars in the parking lot than usual. When she asked her son what it was, he replied: “Today is donuts with dads”.
Donuts with Dads is a morning meeting for schoolchildren and their fathers. Schools also hold cupcakes with mothers and meetings of students with grandparents.
Yvette decided that her son should not miss the event, because she is raising him alone, and offered to dress up with dad. “I know that my son is not easy to see other children with their fathers, but this is life, and if I can do something to make him smile, I will do it,” Yvette wrote on Facebook.
“I thought Elijah would be shy or embarrassed, but he supported my idea,” Yvette said. – He said: “It would be great, we have another 10 minutes before the start. Will you go home to change clothes?
At home, Elijah glued his false mustache to his mother, gave her a baseball cap and a chain from her trousers.
Participants in the school assembly positively perceived the Yvette masquerade. Students and their parents approached Ilya and his mother and even photographed with them.
“First, we approached the administrator and asked where the donuts were. Our appearance caused a violent reaction: the children were ready to ride the floor from laughter. And many dads approached and told me that I am a great mother and I have a great idea. ”
None of the teachers and administration condemned the act of Ivetta.
Under the post of Ivetta on Facebook, which scored 20 thousand likes and more than six thousand reposts, comments from single parents from different countries began to appear.
According to Ivetta, she hopes that her act was able to draw attention to the fact that children who do not have one of their parents experience every day.
Meetings such as “donuts with dads” would have caused them less pain if children could bring their relatives without gluing their false mustache.
