Single Father Goes To Mother's Day Celebrations Dressed As A Woman

Parents often get a bad rep if they don't pull their weight. Rightly so you could say. But instead of slating the mother of his kids, this guy decided to take matters into his own hands and dress up as her instead.

Chatchai Parnuthai, 32, was so intent on not letting his little LADs miss out on Mother's Day celebrations that he turned up to their school Kanchanaburi, Thailand, with a pale pink lace dress on and hair clip to match.

To be fair, some would say he'd over dressed for the occasion but it is pretty adorable.

Mr Parnuthai's sons, Ozone, five, and Imsome, three, faced a pretty lonely afternoon with their fellow classmates and all their mums - something their dad didn't want to happen.

Unfortunately for the youngsters, their mum walked out on them three years ago to move to Europe leaving the three of them behind.

But Mr Parnuthai, a motorbike-loving mechanic, surprised them when he borrowed his own mum's clothes and pinned up his hair to attend the event.

Mr Parnuthai said: "I'm a single dad so I just wanted to make sure that my two sons were happy.

"I was a bit embarrassed, but it meant that they could take part like their classmates."

What a LAD.

Fellow parent Kornpat Sukhom, 36, who also attended the event with her own children, said Mr Parnuthai was the 'best mother'.

She added: "In Thailand if it's Mother's Day, every mother has to join in activities with their children at school. The children's parents are divorced and the mother is now living in Europe.

"This is why he showed up to the school wearing a dress to take the place of her in the celebration.

"He wanted the children not to feel left out because their mother had left them."

Fair play, Mr Parnuthai, we're sure the school would have let you attend wearing whatever you wanted but we love the pure dedication to your boys.

And we're sure they will remember it for many years to come.
