A Boston dad is reminding parents that just because you're divorced, that doesn't mean you can stop being kind to one another.

Billy Flynn Gadbois wrote a Facebook post about how he woke up early to buy flowers, cards and breakfast ingredients so his kids could surprise their mom, his ex-wife, on her birthday.

"Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time," Gadbois wrote. "This annoys me. So I'ma break it down for you all. I'm raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships."
