Parental love is a different kind. It is a love that would make us give up our most favorite thing in the world for our kids.The love is so pure that makes you give up doing what you love just so that the person you love can do it.
Ajit narrated this beautiful incident to me which proves that this kind of love exists at any age.
A little back story, as the star of this narration is Elmo. I am sure you all know who Elmo is. He has been Avy’s favorite for as long as I can remember. He has an Elmo shaggy toy that he keeps on his bed and sleeps with. During certain conversations about relationships like father, mother, son etc, Avy was always curious on where his “son” was. He once told us “Avy has no son becowse he has no wife”.:)
A few days back he decided that Elmo is his “son”. He would hug him, kiss him, play with him like we play with Avy, sleep next to him, read to him etc. So, couple of days ago, Elmo went to daycare with Avy.
Avy loves picking the mail from the mail box everyday. During the weekend he will make multiple trips to check on the mail and would be crushed if we ever touched removed it from the mailbox. As is his usual routine, when he gets back from daycare, he walks to pick up the mail. But he let his “son” pick it up as it is so much fun.
There, that love, truly comes at any age. The love that makes you give up anything you love doing so that the person you love can.
p.s Just a pic of him fitting a tail for Eeyore!!!
