What's a little boy to do when a goose and a duck think that he's their mother? Especially when they follow him around, doing everything he does!

Very cute story of a boy who shows compassion to a goose and a duck.
A boy becomes the mother to a goose because as soon as he hatched, the boy was the first person he stared at. Everything the boy did, the goose would do. Then the boy found a duck egg. When the egg hatched, the goose was the first to make eye contact with the duck so the goose became his mother. Everything the boy did, goose would do and everything goose did, the duck would do. When the goose and duck got a little older, they realized where they were supposed to be.
