Jaxon loves his toy car, and when his mother, Ashley Crawford, saw that a local police officer was tending to a small car wreck on her street, she asked if he could do her a favor and pull up with the lights on behind her son.

Officer Mayo, was happy to play along. "I saw this little boy who looked to be not much older than my son, and he was running up and down the street like my son does and he just made me smile," Mayo tells Yahoo Parenting. "He had this Little Tikes car, and his mom asked if she could snap some pictures. I would never say no to a boy like that. He kept looking up at me like I was some kind of Transformer. He kept smiling."

Jaxon and Mayo spent about 20 minutes together, playing hide-and-go-seek and exchanging high-fives and hugs, Crawford says. "He went above and beyond just so my son would smile," she says. "I think it's important to see that police officers aren't people you should be scared of. They are the people you should turn to for help."

But Mayo says he was the lucky one. "I probably got just as much out of the interaction as Jaxon did. It made my day complete," he says. "I'm just a big kid as it is. In a child's world, make believe and pretend is what it's all about. I would do it a thousand times over."
