Every single day for as long as I remember, Emily has given me a kiss before we part ways and greeted me as if we hadn’t seen each other in weeks every time we are reunited.
We say “I love you” multiple times a day in both French and English.
She asks me “do you know how much I love you?” Than we try to always find something bigger.
I am a spoiled mom.
As she is now a teenager, I was expecting this change in attitude where she would suddenly be too old for love and kisses.
Well… I am truly spoiled as I get hugs, kisses and I love you still. She is not worried about being seen with us and couldn’t care less about showing us affection in public.
The day started a little bumpy today so I’m gonna hold on to this knowledge that although from time to time I have moments where I think that her constant challenges are a pain in the a**, that life is stressful and so on… I am blessed with a husband a child who love me. A Lot, big like an elephant 😉
Nice post.Thanks bro for share.Hope you will continue this type post.
These are the moments to treasure and remember. This morning (we had a sleepover last night) all she wanted to do was cuddle with Grandma. Allie always gives us hugs and kisses. And, when she sees us when we pick her up, you’d think we hadn’t seen her for weeks instead of just a few hours. It’s so sweet.
Emily is like that too and I love it. I try to never short change her when she wants hugs and kisses as I can’t take for granted that they will always be there.
totally something to hold onto! I love that recently my son has started wanting hugs again – after years of not wanting even a good night hug from me, he’s made a point to track me down and make sure he gets one. It warms my heart and helps keep me sane on the days that don’t always go well!
Hugs are the best. Even when we are rushing somewhere…. If Emily wants to hug me, I will slow down and hug her back. You can’t rush a hug!
No you can’t!
