She’s the World’s Best Mom AND Dad.
Single moms have a lot on their plate, and some of them feel like they have to be both mother and father to their children. Yevette Vasquez – from Fort Worth, Texas – decided to go one step further, and dress for the part!
Last week, the single mom of three was dropping off her son Elijah at school and noticed an unusually crowded parking lot. When Elijah told her all the commotion was because of the school’s ‘Donuts with Dad’ breakfast event, Vasquez knew she wasn’t about to let him miss out.
The duo returned home and found the perfect – and hilarious – disguise: a baseball cap, Elijah’s fake mustache, plaid shirt and a dash of cologne. In her Facebook post, Vasquez writes: “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 single mom says she was nervous, but happy to show up at her son’s Sue Crouch Intermediate School dressed as a man. She adds: “Most of the dads thought it was really cool. They thought it was really supportive and sweet. I did feel the energy of a few men who weren’t as comfortable with it though.”
Since September 1, Vasquez’s post has been shared more than 5,600 times, and garnered 15,000 likes. She concludes: “Me and my little ones are grateful because it was definitely a moment we will never forget.”
