snuggle up…yes please

mamma can daddy come and snuggle? yep, this paints the portrait of my lazy monday morning.  i am not going to deny it.  on a wintry day with the promise of rain, rain and more rain there is nothing better than a good snuggle.

my husband was prepping for his day…snuggle time over…but  that little voice calling  —“daddy” must have been pretty convincing.  next thing, we were all snuggling…then the tickle monster visited and we were laughing and giggling our way into monday.

a 5 minute snuggle can do wonders, it brought a little something to a grey day and probably a little something more to a monday.

it’s a rare thing where we don’t have to rush, multitask or by-pass the luxuries of a long shower—a full newspaper read instead of a skim.  i suspect, it is more commonplace to be running late, rushing around, and on a deadline.  who’s with me?

but it’s the moments we take to snuggle up, take a 5 minute real break, stretch, connect with someone who makes us happy and whole, that make us real, happy and better.

i’m always going to strive to take up that offer to “snuggle.”

About ithinkinwords

i love common sense and innovation. the trails, mountains and oceans are magic. i run a little, have recently taken up mountain biking and find bliss in yoga. getting outside everyday and moving is a must! sometimes when i am driving i look into the rearview and think how did i get here? -- last time i looked i was 17 and crossing my fingers my VW had enough gas. well it got me here.

    Yesterday, I parked as far away as possible and let C ride his bike to the Superstore. We even made the trip 4 times because I needed to borrow a loonie for the cart. He was so much happier than when I rush him, and I was so much happier not hearing myself say “no” once again. : )
