Caryl Family Headcanons #1
- when sophia was a toddler she’d wait every evening by the big window in the living room for daryl to pull into the driveway of their house. when she spots the family car she starts squealing and waving and doesn’t stop until he waves back with a big grin on his face. then she bolts for the door and launches herself on him, throwing her little arms around his neck.
- when carol was pregnant with sophia one of their daily rituals was daryl reading a short story every night in bed to her and their unborn daughter. he always rested his head close to her belly while he read and she ran her hand through his hair and couldn’t stop smiling. after sophia was born she had a lot of nightly crying fits and one of the things that immediately calmed her down was hearing daryl’s voice.
- sophia loves it when carol does her hair and teaches her new ways to style them. she owns more glitter hair clips and bows than she can count and she loves to use them on daryl as well. she needs someone to practice her skills on she told him one day in a very serious voice and he can never tell her no when she looks at him with big puppy eyes.
- since the day carol found out she was pregnant she started writing in a diary and over the months and years it turned into a huge scrapbook. she put pictures in it, sophia’s first baby socks, her drawings and one of the pressed cherokee roses daryl had given her the day they left the hospital with their baby daughter. sophia loves that book and all the stories hidden in it and she often asks carol to snuggle up on their couch in front of the fireplace to hear them all over again.
