Bonus Snuggle


When my firstborn was new, she and I wiled away the hours sleeping snuggling and bonding in the recliner, and on the couch… and in my bed.

My middle child; another snuggler.  I’m pretty sure that when Lance would arrive home from work he’d wonder if we had done anything but sleep all day.

And then my busy little girl came along.  This one nursed in record time and wanted.  her.  space.  She was born a teenager, I do believe.  Not much snuggling to be had, which probably worked out for the best since I was now a very busy mom of three.

But I miss the snuggling.

I miss being crushed under the weight of a sleeping toddler (middle child liked to sleep on top of me until he was nearly two years old).

I miss the sweet baby breath whispering in my ear.

This morning my girl woke up early.  Too early.  With a cough.  “Mama!  Maaaammmmaaaa!”  Normally off to the races the moment I lift her out of her crib, this morning she laid her head on my chest.

“Blankie.  Nigh Nigh.”

And we snuggled.

  1. How sweet. I love the rare snuggles. I am a busy mom to 4 now and I will take a snuggle anytime I can get one!

  2. So sweet! I love the snuggles, too. My 3rd child is actually my biggest hugger, giving and requesting them several times each day. I love it!

  3. Awww! I think that’s why I haven’t quite weaned my little one just yet – she doesn’t snuggle much otherwise.

  4. Snuggling is the best thing ever!!!

  5. I love snuggles. My 10 y.o. ds still likes to snuggle. 😀

  6. Awww, how sweet!

  7. Our youngest was like yours—off and running from day 1. He didn’t like to cuddle or snuggle. Until he was 3. Now he loves it. And has become the sweetest little kisser in the house! Enjoy it while you can!!! I do!
