“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”


Vivian \v(i)-vian\ as a girl’s name, is pronounced VIV-ee-en. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Vivian is “lively”.

“Lively” certainly describes my three-year-old niece, Vivian Kenley Brazell. She packs heat and has a menacing stare that would make Clint Eastwood tremble.

Do ya feel lucky, punk?

Vivian is helpful. She was so willing to assist me in blowing out my birthday candles last Friday.

Brax, Tra, and Vivi making wishes.

But a girl’s got her limits.  When Uncle Brad asked if he could have some ice cream, Vivian matter-of-factly replied, “No,” with a look to back it up.

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

She isn’t wasteful.  Not one drop of ice cream left to spoil. Or for Brad.

Goldilocks and Baby Bear’s porridge?

Vivian really wants to mind her parents. Who am I kidding? No, she doesn’t.

Sneaky Diva

But what a charmer!  Vivi looked at me and said, “I love you to the back of the moon.”  That’s way more than to the moon and back.

Tricked out for ‘Toddlers & Fedoras’

Oh, yes, there’s plenty of spice preserving that spunk!  But for those times when the sugar melts, so does your heart. Auntie loves you, Vivi-Kenz!
