The Power of Snuggles

I just don't think there is anything in this world more calming and therapeutic than baby snuggles. Heck, any kind of snuggles are great, don't get me wrong, but baby snuggles are definitely way up in the ranking. So, when I woke up in a funk this morning, my schedule all thrown off by not actually having to get out of bed (yay T was home!) and not feeling quite up to par healthwise, what did I do? I snuggled the dickens out of little K. I pulled him into bed and we just snuggled and nursed and snuggled and nursed and napped and cuddled and... ok, you get the point. I think he may have even been completely snuggled out by the end of the morning. However, when that baby boy looked me in the eyes, sighed, cuddled up against my chest and drifted quietly off to sleep it made me feel so awesome. Like nothing would ever make me sad ever again. It also brought up that fierce instinct that says "you are my world and I will never let anything hurt you". Its not a feeling you can explain to someone that doesn't have kids. I didn't ever want to move again, just lay there and snuggle. Of course I had to get up eventually but at least we got that time. I know it made me feel worlds better and I imagine in his own little baby way he appreciated it too. Snuggle time really should be part of our daily routine. If only I had the time. Now to go snuggle attack D while K is napping..


  1. Snuggles definitely have a special place in every moms day! They can brighten up even the gloomiest of days. I'm so glad that your little one had all of that awesome mommie time!

  2. Yeah Snuggles are the best I can't get enough of them. I'm pretty found of the Toddler snuggles though, they come with hugs and kisses. I can do without the back talk though...tee hee
