Single Mum Becomes Dad For The Day So Her Son Doesn’t Miss Out On School Event

Three years ago, Whitney Kittrel found herself as a single parent. She vowed to do everything in her power to give her kids a ‘normal’ life, and knew she’d go to great lengths to do so.¬†“Trips alone, teaching my son how to play catch, killing bugs with minimal screaming, countless memories, and a normal life,” she writes on her Facebook post, describing her life with her children.

After her son was finished with class at¬†Arrowhead Elemantary School kindergarten one afternoon, he came home with a flyer for the school “dads and doughnuts” breakfast event. “My heart kinda sank,” wrote Whitney, not wanting her son to be disappointed.

The two of them sat and talked. Whitney asked her son if he’d like his grandfather to accompany him instead, though he politely declined. “He just smiled and said, “No. I want you to go. You’re my mom and dad.”

So supermum Whitney quickly concocted an ingenious plan.

“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!”

This isn’t the first instance of a mother donning a father’s clothes to make sure that their children didn’t miss out on a school event. Kittrel’s post on Facebook has received an astoundingly positive response, with 9500 plus likes and over 4500 shares.

And it’s more than evident that her son appreciated the gesture, too:

“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”

Whilst it can sometimes be difficult being a single parent, Whitney has fully embraced all of the challenges and has undoubtedly achieved supermum status!

TEST: What Kind Of Student Are You?

University is back in swing for most students, and for the Freshers among you, you’re probably just recovering from Freshers’ Flu and still getting drunk every night.

This test will tell you what kind of student you are. Are you showing up to lectures every morning with a hangover? Are you the student who lives in the library and has no social life? Or are you the one student everyone envies because you somehow manage to balance everything? This quiz will reveal the type of student you really are!

Have you ever listened to teachers explaining that everyone learns differently and acknowledged it as fact, but you have never quite figured out what your learning style is? So you just stick to reading notes and hoping you will magically memorise them? Me too. But this quiz will tell you your learning style, and you can test it out and see if it really helps you to learn! (It doesn’t count as “not working” if you try while hungover, guys).

University reading lists and school work can be tiresome and intense, so any potential help is a bonus, right? Might as well give it a try!
