Our little Thomas is typically too busy for snuggles anymore. He's an active 2 year old...we're lucky when the kid slows down enough to EAT!
He does enjoy a nice long afternoon nap every day though (thank the Lord), so when our little man was rudely awakened the other day by his older siblings the other day, he was Cranky (yes, that's "cranky" with a capital "C"!).
My wonderful Luke is a wise daddy. He could see that the problem was that Thomas just needed more sleep, so he rocked and snuggled him back to sleep while a football game played in the background.
I'm not sure who enjoyed it more...me, to see the two of them so sweet...Luke, to be snuggling with our busy little guy...or Thomas, who needed the sleep.
We never know.
We never know until days or weeks or months later...when will it be the last time that he snuggles like this? When will it be the last time that this little person will hold my hand? Call me "Mommy"? Enjoy talking with me? Want to spend time with me....heck, want to be seen with me at all?! Kiss me on the cheek?
I'm doing my best to soak it all in and not take it for granted.
