Only those who have children know what unconditional parental love is. Mothers and fathers are capable of the craziest things only to make their kids happy. An unusual and fascinating gesture that took place in the city of Goiânia, Brazil, is a clear example of this.
With Mother's Day approaching, 33-year-old entrepreneur Daniel Correa, like many other men in his situation, was worried about one thing only: how to cheer up his daughter Luna from the recent loss of her mother.
He never expected the 5-year-old herself would find the way out. Rehearsing a song dedicated to all the mothers at school, Luna painfully remembered that hers would see her sing. What was her solution? She asked her dad to be her “mommy for a day” at the party. Daniel posted this on his Instagram account:
She asked, her eyes full of tears, me to be her mother for a day. She asked for the pink beard and blond wig.
Daniel than wrote that his initial reaction was to try to talk his daughter out of it. He even offered reasonable alternatives: she could invite her grandmother or one of her aunts. But she was resolute! Her insistence melted the father’s heart who would do anything for Luna to be happy.
I love Luna. I would do it all over again for her.

Priceless – that’s how Daniel described Luna's smile when she saw him as her “mommy for a day.” As soon as it landed in social networks, the unusual gesture got a tremendous response from the internet community. The post has already collected more than 420,000 likes on Instagram and endless praises in the comments.
How beautiful! What a nice gesture. You are a real man and an admirable father. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
You made me cry at work.
As a parent, I can openly say that you made my day happier. Cheers on the attitude!
