Little Man has been sick for the last couple of days with the sniffles and a fever on Sunday night. He’s feeling better now and can actually sleep and breathe at the same time, which is SO much better for Teacher Man and I.
While I can’t stand to see Little Man sick and not feeling like himself, I thoroughly enjoyed the time that I had to snuggle with him. I was rocking him back to sleep in the middle of the night and I thought about how fortunate I am. I have an adorable little boy and now, finally, I am the one that a baby reaches for and snuggles into when he wants to feel better.
For so long, I would hold babies when I babysat, played with my younger nieces and nephews, and enjoyed babbling with my friends’ babies, but I was never the one that they reached for when they wanted to snuggle before bed. Now, I get to be the one that someone wants and leans toward.
It’s the best feeling.
