Make believe villages and curly haired children.

2 Apr

This is Brynn (and my friend Tobin).


I have babysat Brynn for almost her entire life. Her parents some how trusted me enough to leave me with their six week old almost seven years ago and I have jumped at the opportunity to hang out with this wild mess of curls and energy ever since.

She always amazes me with her imagination and story-telling ability. Brynn LOVES to be the center of attention. She dances and sings and creates these elaborate tales that always have her as the leading lady.

Last night, while I was helping her get ready for bed, she informed me that there was town in Arizona called Brynnville. She proceeded to show me a map of this little town that she had drawn. This imaginary place had a giant pink castle in which Brynn and her gaggle of friends lived in, an ice cream parlor within walking distance, a water slide and heart shaped pool, a stable for ponies and a giant Home Depot.

Me: “Why do you have a Home Depot in Brynnville?”

Brynn (with a heavy sigh and a roll of her eyes): “So my daddy can fix things, Faryle.”

Well, of course. Silly me.

    One of my favorite Brynn stories to tell. I often find myself quoting that at very inappropriate times.

    “We were at the pool… WHAT?!”
