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 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. But 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”. So this morning l 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!” We tried my best to let them know they are loved but I wonder a lot if I’m actually succeeding at it. 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. #sinqlemom #dadsanddouqhnuts
