Yes, she L.O.V.E.S. Thomas the Tank Engine. He (and all his friends) are her favorite toys! But at the same time, she is starting to show an interest in Princesses, so I thought I'd run with it!
But the most exciting is her Santa gift! Let me preface this with a warning. If you think Santa is coming down your chimney on Christmas night then don't read any further. Now that that is out of the way, non believers--keep reading. She has been wanting a tricycle from Santa. Everytime she sees him, she reminds him that she wants a pink tricycle. Well, Steven and I did a quick google search a few weeks ago for "pink tricycle." Holy Crap! I had no idea tricycles cost so much. So then I did a "red tricycle" search and ah-ha! It's the pink ones that are so dang expensive. So in the following days, we tried to convince Brynlee how cool red tricycles are. This is how well that went:
Steven: Do you want Santa to bring you a pink (in a low, flat, monotone sort of way) or a RED (said in an exciting, varied inflection sort of way) tricycle?
Brynlee: Pink (as she walked away to play)
So pink it is. Steven says we are spoiling her and she would love a red one the same. I say no way...and think back to the Barbie house that I wanted when I was younger. (Mom, don't be sad...I do love the doll house I got instead! ;)
Here's a sneak peek at what Brynlee will see on Christmas morning, but if you run into her before then, keep it a secret!
