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.
