Last week, a fan video went up called “Why is Rylan on less videos than the other girls | Here is the truth…”. The video was a wonderful attempt by this fan to confront rumors that some viewers were making about Rylan in our family.

You can watch the original fan video from the “All about Brooklyn and Bailey” channel HERE!

First, Shaun and I didn’t think much of the video until Rylan came home last Wednesday saying that many of her friends were asking her about it. Then the twins came home saying the same thing! Before we knew it, that video had 1 Million views, meaning that fans were obviously taking an interest in it and that that maybe it was something that we needed to address.

That day, I asked Rylan what she thought about what was said in the video, knowing what our family dynamic is truly like, and was relieved to hear that she thought it was SUPER funny that fans would feel that way! (As a mom, you always worry about negative comments other kids will make about your own child, and how it could affect them and their self esteem.)

Rylan wanted to film a video, which is something she doesn’t normally want to do, in order to address the thoughts and feelings of viewers and to express her own as well. Bailey had a great idea to make this a reaction video, where Rylan can react to the rumors and and the positives of the fan video. Shaun and I added our own comments as well.

Rylan has never really liked having her hair done, on camera or off, so we accommodate her on that. She isn’t sure if she wants a YT channel, so we are respectful of that as well. Rylan has an amazing personality, with a super funny sense of humor, and a very talented singing voice. She’s has a lot of confidence, is a straight-A student, is an awesome volleyball player, and holds a special place in my heart!

Let me end with this. Shaun and I love Rylan and all of our children equally but in specific ways, unconditionally, and without exception. We do not force our children to participate in videos, or to be who we want them to be, or because fans are asking for it. While B&B and Kamri have chosen to make YT a part of their lives, Rylan isn’t sure that’s what she wants and we are respectful of that. Therefore she spends her time having played club and school volleyball, taking voice lessons, gymnastics, and spending time with friends.

I love my Ry-Ry, who I still think has the most beautiful blue eyes in the family, adorable freckles, and the cutest nose!
