Forced to slow down

Don't get me wrong, I would never want my kids to be sick. However,yesterday was a good day. The baby had a fever and was pretty much only happy if he was laying on my sleeping. With the frantic pace we have been going ever since this whole move thing became a reality it was nice to have an excuse to go much slower. It was also nice to have him content to just lay on me. There is nothing like a little person melting into your body sleeping. Since about August when he became mobile he has been awfully busy, so I soaked up the snuggles yesterday. Tennille's (my sister) little girl Eleison will snuggle all the time. My kids seem to require a drug induced state to snuggle for more than about 2 minutes. As great as yesterday was, this morning as I wait for him to wake up, I'm hoping he is better. I have lots to do.

I can relate to this. My girls won't hold still long enough to snuggle. Little Eli likes to hug and snuggle right before bed, which is nice. Eleanor was sick today, too, and she was much more loving and snuggly. We have to take it wherever we can get it!
