Being a mom is a tremendous blessing. Of course, like anything else, sometimes in the busy day-to-day, it is all too easy to forget that. But then, your child (or children) will do something to remind you.
This morning was one of those times for me.
I woke up about 3:45 in the midst of a coughing fit. It’s Spring, which means my sinuses are draining. Blech. So I hacked and I hacked until eventually I just got up.
I was eventually able to go back to bed about 4:30 and was not looking forward to my alarm clock going off at 7 a.m.
But something really sweet happened as my alarm started going off. Alaina came into my room, closed the door and walked to my side of the bed. Then she told me, “Mommy, I want to snuggle.”
So I pulled her onto the bed and we proceeded to snuggle for 5-10 minutes. Normally if she wants to snuggle, its a minute or two, tops. But not today.
Today she apparently needed that snuggle time just as much as I did. As Alaina gets older, snuggle time happens less and less, which made today’s wake-up cuddles all the sweeter.
