It was meant to be "something silly and fun" to make her son "smile and laugh."

One single mom from Texas decided to make sure her 12-year-old son didn't feel left out on “Donuts with Dad” day at his elementary school. Yevette Vasquez was dropping off her sixth-grade son, Elijah, at school a few years ago when she noticed "more cars in the parking lot than usual."

"I asked him, 'What's going on? Is there some event that I'm supposed to be here for?' and he tells me, 'No, don't worry. It's just Donuts With Dad.'" Vasquez told ABC News. "I told him, 'How come you didn't tell me?' and joked I could've dressed up as a man for him." Instead of laughing it off, her son actually perked and seemed to enjoy the idea. "He was like, 'Well, Mom, we got 10 minutes before the bell rings!'" Vasquez said. "When I saw how excited he was about it, I decided to follow through."

The dedicated mom took to the cause and quickly went home and changed into a plaid shirt. She also put on a baseball cap, a fake mustache, and cologne, and then went back to her son’s school. "When we walked into the library, there were a whole bunch of men, and a lot of them were cheering," Vasquez said. "Elijah was just smiling really big. It was a lot of fun, and of course, we got doughnuts."
