Single moms often find themselves playing both roles, and a Texas mama took that to heart when dropping her son off to school last week.
When Yevette Vasquez pulled up to her son Elijah’s school, she noticed the parking lot was busier than usual. The 12-year-old explained it was a “Donuts with Dad” morning, where dad-son pair up and eat breakfast at the school. With Elijah’s father out of the picture, she was determined to make sure her son didn’t feel left out. “I wasn’t about to let him miss out,” she wrote in a Facebook post that has since gone viral. “I know seeing other dads with (their) kids isn’t easy for mine, but it’s life. At least I can do whatever it takes to put a smile on that face.”
The creative mom headed home, where she changed into a plaid shirt, Rangers baseball cap, wallet chain, mustache, and she topped it all off with a spritz of cologne. Elijah even helped her pick the outfit. “He kept saying, ‘No, you still look like a girl!’” Yevette said.
From the moment she arrived in her new wardrobe, Yevette says she was met with nothing but love and support. And from the looks of it, it’s something Elijah will never forget!
