I often write about how funny I think Brynn's imagination is. The girl could sit by herself at the kitchen table with a tiny teddy bear and a shoe and create an entire fantasy world around it. She turns just about everything into a plaything with a name and personality all its own...toothbrushes, pencils, she even turned a foam noodle into a pirate she named Buddy (I could have sworn I took a picture of Buddy, but couldn't find one anywhere...my apologies).
Here are a few recent examples of Brynn's imaginative play:
Buttons, right? Nope. It's a button family. Clockwise from left, there's "the mommy, a kid, a baby, and a kind of baby kid." They sleep on her bedside table.
Here are Brynn's fingers, stuck inside Strawberry Shortcake's shoes. She calls it the "shoe bandit." I can't make this stuff up.
One of my favorite things Brynn does is care for inanimate objects as if they were pets. Case in point:
Here is Brynn's piggy bank, reading "Happy Birthday, Little Pookie." Apparently, the piggy bank "likes to read about pigs because she's a pig." And she's wearing glasses because "she can't quite see." Brynn puts a sleeping cap and a blanket on her piggy bank every night. She also likes to wear these glasses, and while I hope her perfect vision stays with her well into adulthood, bespectacled Brynn is pretty darn cute:
I love getting down and playing with Brynn, but sometimes it's even better to just be a fly on the wall...with a camera!
