Every afternoon, 4-year-old Carter Lawson of Knoxville, TN, waits for his best buddy, Mailman Mike. He tries to pass the time until the postman's arrival by playing ball and doing other things, but he's always on the lookout.
Originally, Carter was more interested in the mail truck than the guy delivering letters, but the two struck up a friendship when Carter began bringing Mike water and snacks on very hot days.
Hand in hand, the two walk around the neighborhood--Carter asking questions, Mike keeping him safe from the not-so-friendly dogs.
Carter even has his own pint-size postman's uniform. "Oh, I just couldn't believe he got a full mailman's costume," Mike told the local NBC television station, WBIR. But Carter tells everyone he wants to be a mail carrier like his idol when he grows up.
He especially likes helping Mike put letters and magazines in the mailbox.
"Every letter carrier has stops he looks forward to and this is the one I look forward to every day," Mike told WBIR. "He's the end of my day, and the best part of my day. Not just because it's the end, because he's such a cute little guy."
It's safe to say that it's the highlight of Carter's day, too! Watch the two together below and revel in their heartwarming relationship.
