Brilliant video shows mom dress as giant unicorn to surprise her daughter at the bus stop
Embarrassing your kids is all a part of the parcel of being a parent, but one mom is celebrating the fact that her daughter is still young enough to love her dress up antics.
A video of the mom in question has gone viral, after she dressed up as a pink unicorn with a glorious rainbow-colored horn to meet her daughter from the school bus. She captioned the brilliant clip: "When your daughter is young enough to think you're still cool and not embarrassing."
To see the little girl's heartwarming reaction, check out the video below:
The woman featured is Somer Scandridge; a mom of two from Texas who describes herself as a "big kid for life". She'd ordered the costume online and decided to give it its debut while meeting her six-year-old daughter Madison at her school bus.
Eagle-eyed viewers will realize how good a decision this was; not only was Madison delighted to see her mom in costume, she was wearing a unicorn hairband and had a unicorn backpack, so her love of the mythical creature was apparent for all to see.
After the surprise, Somer shared the video on her Facebook page, where it quickly garnered a lot of attention.
"You are my inspiration. LOVE IT," one person commented.
Another gushed: "I love everything about this!"
"This is just adorable," wrote a third viewer.
While a fourth added: "Oh.my.gosh. I FREAKING LOVE YOU AND YOURE [sic] THE BEST MOM EVERRR!!!"
Somer explained why she'd bought the costume in the first place to local news outlet KTRK - it's all part of a family tradition.
"Every year, my 4-year-old son and my 6-year-old daughter pick out their Halloween costumes, and whatever they pick, we match them. My husband matches my son and I match my daughter," she said.
Needless to say, Madison is dressing up as a unicorn this Halloween.
"We're a super close family and do a lot of stuff together," Somer added.
