He is growing so fast, but sometimes he still needs his mama. Last night, with the new lockdown regulations in place, he wanted or needed to cuddle with me. Hours past his bedtime, he managed to settle in to sleep, and you had better believe that I enjoyed every single second of his small, deep breathing body curled up next to me. At his age, I don’t know when he will ever fall asleep in the crook of my arm again, so these small moments comfort me just as much as they do him.
2020 is hard on adults and kiddos alike. Sometimes it shows up as acting out, sometimes it shows up as not being able to sleep, sometimes it shows up in a need for extra cuddles, and those are not just for the adults.
