Tony Wood, the father of six children, decided to joke and responded to the stranger:
I believe this message was intended for someone else. My wife isn’t home, so I couldn’t get her opinion, but the kids and I think you look stunning in your dress! You should definitely go with that one!

Sydney decided to tell this funny story to her friend. But it didn’t end here. She chose to share this hilarious moment with her followers on Twitter. Not surprisingly, this post instantly became an internet sensation.
Tony saw this tweet on the web and attached a photo of his sixth son to him, who was giving his thumb up. In the comments, he explained why he wasn’t there when the first picture was taken.
It turned out that little Kaizler was in the hospital with his mother, as he was undergoing chemotherapy. In 2015, the boy was diagnosed with leukaemia. His father was working hard to feed his family and help Kaizler.
You're very kind. Here is a thumbs up from Kaizler! pic.twitter.com/hHbl48Zkc7
