Meet Erika Biga Lee.
Earlier this week, the teacher at the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University brought her son, Max, to one of her classes. And the 7-year-old – who is off for spring break – decided to make his visit a memorable one: by dressing up in a Godzilla costume.
Lee explains: “His school has parent-teacher conferences once a semester, and his dad works out of town, so he has to go with me to my university course that day.” As Max paraded around the class – much to the delight of students – undergrad instructor Nathaniel Ferguson snapped some photos and shared them on Twitter.

His post quickly went viral: it has been retweeted more than 83,000 times and garnered over 261,000 likes. Ferguson says: “Max is a big Godzilla fan. Last year for Halloween Max went as Godzilla and he has been in love with the costume ever since.”
As it turns out, Max has a thing for dressing up for his mother’s work. Last year, he visited Lee’s Web Design course dressed as an adorable T-Rex.
