When single mom Amy Peterson got the school's note about a father-daughter dance, she couldn't bear the thought that her daughter Gracie, 6, couldn't go.
"When the flyer went out about the dance Gracie came home and asked me to be her date," Peterson told TODAY, "I gladly accepted and filled out the form and sent the money to the school. Four weeks passed and finally the dance came. Gracie and I came up with the idea for me to dress up as a man so I did just that."
But the crafty mom's plan was foiled when the school learned that she planned to cross-dress to attend the dance, and forbid her from attending.
