Single mom dresses as a man so she can attend 'Dads and Donuts' event at son's school

One single parent from Texas went the extra mile to spend more time with her son at a school event this week.

According to a Facebook post, Yvette Vasquez of Fort Worth, Texas felt bad that her son Elijah didn’t have a father to attend a “Dads and Donuts” event at school. So she did what any single mother would do — put on her best dad face.

Vasquez donned a flannel shirt, a ballcap and even a fake mustache to pass as Elijah’s father for the Dads and Donuts event.

“I know seeing other dads with there (sic) kids isn't easy for mine but its life, at least I can do whatever it takes to put a smile on that face,” Vasquez said in her post.
