5-Year-Old Girl Forms Unbreakable Bond With A Duck –
Kylie is going to make a great mom some day. Mostly because — she always has been.
Ever since Kylie’s parents brought home a duck named Snowflake, the two formed a close bond.
Now, the two go everywhere together.
Snowflake sincerely believes that Kylie is his mother, and the duck is not alone in this delusion.
“I’m his mom,” Kylie told Steve Hartman of CBS News.
“You’re not really his mom,” Hartman replied.
Kylie disagreed. “Yep, I’m his mom.”
As a duckling, Snowflake imprinted on Kylie and just had to be by her side, no matter what the hour.
When Snowflake refused to stay in the backyard, Kylie’s parents had no choice but to give him a diaper and make him a house duck.
Snowflake waits at the bus stop for Kylie every day. He goes on beach vacations with the family. He even attends her soccer practices.
“He goes everywhere that ducks are allowed and almost everywhere they’re not allowed,” Kylie’s father, Mike Brown, said.
“I don’t know if you’ve ever had a 2-year-old or a 4-year-old that wouldn’t leave home without its blanky — she would not leave home without her duck. And at that point, nothing is negotiable.”
