Not everyone got to spend their day with a special someone this past Valentine’s Day. For one recently divorced mother, this day was going to hurt deep.

When 4-year-old Max found out that his newly divorced mom, Emma Schofield, might end up feeling sad on this day, he was determined to be the best Valentine he could be for her.

During a routine trip to the grocery store, Max picked out a teddy bear for his mother and asked if she would be willing to go on a date with him.

“All of the shops make such a big thing about Valentine’s Day and I was secretly dreading it as I am recently divorced with a beautiful little 4 year old boy.
I have always brought my son up to be thoughtful, kind, caring and appreciate even the smallest gestures.
After a quick grocery shop, my son told me to close my eyes (which I kept partially open to see what he was up to) and he proceeded to chose me a Valentine’s card and a small teddy bear in a gift bag. My eyes welled up as we continued to shop.
Today he took me to Pizza Express (of course I was the designated chauffer) and wanted to treat me to a special meal. He also brought his jar of pennies with him. After a delicious 3 course meal, we went to pay. We were greeted with a waitress in tears who had watched our special ‘dinner date’. Looking at her eyes welling up, I also began to shed a tear. She gave us our meal free of charge as a gift from Pizza Express in Torquay as she was so touched by what my 4 year old son had done.
This extremely kind gesture left me crying with happiness and holding onto my son with pure joy! “- Emma Schofield

At the end of their 3-course meal, Max was preparing to pay the bill with his jar of pennies that he was saving up. The waitresses were so touched that they just had to give them their dinner for free!

Way to go little man!
