“When I became a single mom over 3 years ago I made a promise with myself that I would do anything I could, even if it meant going out of my comfort zone, to give my kids a “normal” life,” wrote Utah-based Whitney Kittrell on Facebook recently. and so when her kindergardener came home from Arrowhead Elementary School kindergarten class with an invite for “dads and donuts” day, she did the only thing she could: she threw on her best “dad outfit,” complete with false mustache, and accompanied her son to school! “I gathered up my best dad outfit, painted on some facial hair, and went to breakfast with my sweet son. I was so embarrassed but I couldn’t help but smile when he introduced me to his little friends saying “this is my mom… she’s my dad too so I brought her!” Her post has since been liked almost 200k times and shared by over 100k people. Mom of the year? She’s certainly got our vote.
