(Scroll down for video) A mother went through great lengths to make her son happy.

The single mother of Fort Worth, Texas, posted photos to Facebook, showing her dressed up in a baseball cap, plaid shirt and fake moustache.

The mother soon became an Internet sensation after she explained that she did so to be at an event at her son’s school.

Yevette Vasquez said that she took her 12-year-old son Elijah to school when she realized that there were more cars than usual.

She asked her son what was going on. At first, he brushed it off, but when she insisted, he explained that the school was holding a special event called “Donuts with Dads,” where fathers come to spend time with their sons while eating donuts.

Yevette asked her son why he did not tell her about it. She said that she joked and said that she could have dressed up as a man.

The sixth-grader liked the idea and told his mother that she had 10 minutes before the bell rang to change. The mother and son went home and soon came back as “father and son.”

Yevette walked into the room with her son with all the other fathers and sons. Her disguise didn't fool the other fathers, but they did congratulate her on being a very creative single mother.
