This Single Mum Has An Original Approach For ‘Bring Dad To School Day’

This creative single mum is winning at life after dressing up like a man so her son didn’t miss out on Donuts with Dad day at school – what a legend.


Yevette Vasquez rushed home to transform into a dad outfit after she realised Elijah’s classmates had all brought their fathers to school for the day.

In the humorous but heart-wrenching gesture, she explains how days like that can be hard for Elijah as he does not have a dad.

Here’s Yevette, post-transformation:

Good morning, today at my son Elijah’s skewl as I was dropping him off i ask him why there was so many cars… He said…

The post reads:

Today at my son Elijah’s school as I was dropping him off I asked him why there was so many cars… He said Donuts ? with Dad, so we quickly went back home cause I wasn’t about to let him miss out….. 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, so here it goes….. and please don’t hate I know I’m a woman and so do my sons.

She sported a fake moustache, checked shirt and baseball cap to complete her look.

And here’s Yevette without the dad outfit – quite the difference:


Yevette said to CNN:

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.

He [Elijah] was really excited. He was shaking and said, ‘Thank you.’ I told him, ‘I did this for you so you can have fun.’

Her awesome quick-thinking resonated with loads of people, with the post getting over 15k shares on Facebook. Good on her!
