Snugglebug


In all of the rushes of my life, I simply cannot express the joy that comes from having a snugglebug morning with my little guy. This morning, all of us woke up late...so chaos ensued. Thinking of the crazy-hecticness of the morning, I was not excited to get started. As I staggared to my coffee pot to pour myself a cup of ever-living-energy...darn half-caff...I noticed a white blanket on the evergreen bushes out my kitchen window! It snowed! YEAH! Finally some relief to the dryness here. Anyways, as the morning moved on, all my little guy wanted to do was snuggle! He got his Thomas the Train blanket I made for him at Christmas, and drug it over to me and said, "Mommy, can we snugglebug?" WELL OF COURSE WE CAN! So we snugglebugged together on the couch, watching kid-shows, reading his new books, and talking! What a morning! Then, looking up I realized that we were going to be late to EVERYTHING today...no matter...I cancelled some stuff...you know...due to the 1/2 inch snow on the ground ;)...and Aidan and I have planned out our morning together...
Ahhh...I should totally do this more often...take time away from my "TO DO" list and do something on my "NEED TO DO" list!

I love this!!! What a great way to spend the morning!!! I'm usually in such a hurry in the morning that I'm sure I miss out on many opportunities like the one you had this morning! This was a good lesson for me to read!

A fellow blogger!!!! Great blog and great insights. It's all about what's most important. It defines what our life is about and what people talk about when we die.

Were you a great parent or always punctual in your appointments? I know which one I want to be!

Great. Look forward to reading your blog.

That's so sweet! My boys are often too "busy" to snuggle with their Mommy, but when they do, it totally makes my day! I'm glad you got to enjoy some snuggle time with your little man.
