A first-grader in Nevada is making adorable news after he insisted he wear his mask to a school photo.
The boy’s mother, Nicole Peoples, described the incident on her Facebook page and wrote that she was happy that her son listened to her, but should have been more clear.
“I’m so proud of him for sticking to his word, but I should have been more aware of my rules on this day,” she wrote under a photo of her masked son Mason.

Further describing the funny incident, Nicole said the exchange started with the photographer telling Mason to remove his mask for the photo.
In response, he told the photographer, “My mom said it should stay on all the time unless I eat and far away from everyone.”
Nicole said the photographer was trying to reassure her son and said to him, “I’m sure it’s ok to take it off for your photos.” But Mason refused, “No, my mother told me seriously to make sure to keep at it.”
When asked once more if he would remove the mask in just a few seconds, Mason stood firm and said, “No thank you, I always listen to my mother!”
While the incident may not have created the ideal photo, many on Facebook praised Mason for his sticktoitiveness.
“I love it! What an incredible memory from this crazy era we live through,” wrote one commentator. “You must be proud! It must be hard to stand up to an adult, but he had the confidence to stand up for it, he thought was right. Good work mom! ”another remarked.
In response to her and her son’s newfound viral fame, Nicole Peoples started a GoFundMe to raise money for Mason’s college fund rather than physical gifts, such as ice cream, which many wanted to send him. As of Saturday afternoon, it is raising over $ 10,000.
