- Single mom dressed up as a father so her son won’t miss the “Dads and Doughnuts” day
- Whitney Kittrell said she promised herself that she will do everything to give her kids a normal life even if they don’t have a dad
- Kittrell shared how happy she felt when her son introduced her to his friends; saying she is both his mother and father
A single mother, who once promised to do everything to give her kids a normal life, dressed herself up as a father so her son won’t miss the “dads and doughnuts” day.
On Facebook, Whitney Kittrell shared that when she became a single mother, she promised herself to do her best to give her children a normal life even if they don’t have a father — and she could say that she succeeded in her goal.
“When I became a single mom over three years ago, I made a promise to 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 and the same experiences as other kids. We have accomplished a lot. Trips alone, teaching my son how to play catch, killing bugs with minimal screaming, countless memories, and a normal life,” she said.
But one day her kindergarten son asked her to go with him to the “Dads and Doughnuts” day.
“When my kindergartener came home with a paper saying that they were having ‘dads and doughnuts,’ my heart kinda sank. I finally sat him down and asked if he wanted to ask his grandpa to go. He just smiled and said ‘no. I want you to go. You’re my mom and dad,'” Kittrell narrated.
The loving mom then gathered up her best dad outfit, painted on some facial hair, and went with her 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!'” she said.
Later on, she got the greatest reward for what she has done.
“When I went to leave, he ran after me and hugged me tight around my neck and whispered, ‘Mom, I know that you’ll always be there and do anything for me. Thank you. I love you,’ kissed my cheek and ran off. I hope he remembers this day cause I’ll never forget it or his sweet words,” she wrote.
