Brown Family

A 5-year-old girl from Maine is taking her role as mom very seriously. Just ask Kylie Brown and she will tell you she feels like she is her pet duck Snowflake's mom. After you see the adorable video, you'll see why the internet is falling in love with these two.

"I'm his mom," Kylie tells CBS News. When she was reminded that she's not really Snowflake's mom, she disagreed. "Yep, I'm his mom."

Snowflake agrees with his new mom. After meeting Kylie last summer, Snowflake hasn't left her side since. Kylie's mom, Ashley Brown, tells ABC 13 "We brought him home, this little yellow furball is squawking in a box, and Kylie walked over to the box and leaned in, and he was quiet. Everywhere she went he was quiet. And if she went missing, he would squawk and panic."

Snowflake made it very clear he and Kylie would not be separated and refused to stay in the backyard. So Kylie's parents say they had no choice but to make him a house duck. They even fashioned him a diaper.

Now these two are inseparable. The family has shared pictures of the two at the beach together, at soccer practice, at sleepovers at friend's houses, even sledding this winter. For Halloween, this duo went trick-or-treating as their favorite pair, Elsa and Olaf from Frozen.

Kylie's dad tells CBS News "It's special, even at 5 years old, that I know that that's the type of person she's going to be."

Here's a video of this unlikely duo and it will probably be the cutest thing you see today.
