Good Night Elmo

I realized today that my daughter Allie made me a grandfather. My three year old daughter's child is ELMO! I've watched Allie carry Elmo around for over a year now and their relationship has grown to the point that Allie (aka Elmo's mommy) has put a diaper and pajamas on Elmo, rocked her to sleep, fed her and even sang happy birthday to Elmo. Today I witnessed Allie expand her motherly duties by putting Elmo on the potty!

I pulled two other Elmos from storage today and Allie adopted them as Elmo's mommy and daddy. Later in the day I was able to capture Allie and Anna giving goodnight love to the entire Elmo family. Too cute.

I am amazed by your little girl, brings back memories of my little mommy days. They say children model after their parents. To me it seems you are doing a great job. I can say that she has a good mommy and will be one herself. I have been following the elmo journey on your wife's blog, brings a smile to my face.

Thanks. It is gratifying to know Sarah's efforts to capture the girls brings a smile to others!

Holy cow, those girls are so cute! Love them. :) My boys would be more likely to swing Elmo around and chuck him across the room. ;)
