Snuggle Time

This morning at 6:00, Briggs came into our room saying he wa scared. Normally being woken up really bothers me, especially at 6:00 on a Saturday when I can sleep in. However, this morning as he snuggled in with his "dee-dee" (blankie) I realized how precious this time is that I get to snuggle with my children. They are growing up to fast that I need to savour this time. Briggs has always been my snuggler. Even at 5, he still loves to crawl in my lap, push his soft little face into mine and give me a kiss. He still lets me pick him up and smother him with hugs and kisses and just rub his baby smooth little cheeks. He still has that sweet child smell (he hasn't quite reached the sweaty boy stage!) so now, instead of sending him back to bed until I decide to get up, he and I are downstairs watching Tom and Jerry. Here's to snuggling your kids as long as you can!

A MEN!!!!!!!!! My time went by too fast and I was in too much of a hurry to make them all (my kids)so independent. I did a good job, but missed out on some sweet moments that I now regret.

Yes, good point. Two snuggle posts in a row!
