When Kittrell, of St. George, Utah, became a single mom three years ago, she made a promise to her kids that they would always have a normal life.
"But when my kindergartner came home with a paper saying that they were having 'dads and doughnuts,' my heart kinda sank," she told Fox 5. “I finally sat him down and asked him if he wanted to ask his grandpa to go."
And she was surprised to hear her son say "no."
