One day last week, I asked this sweet boy for a kiss. He shook his head no, so I asked him for a hug. He said no again.
I put a teasing pout on my face, looked at my little guy, and said, “You don’t love me?”
Alex very seriously replied, “I do love you, Mom, but I don’t want to give you hugs or kisses anymore. I’ll still snuggle with you, though.”
He’s getting bigger. Maybe he’ll change his mind, but I’m a little sad that he’s not too interested in kisses or hugs anymore. It’s good to know he’ll still snuggle – even request a snuggle – but it’s sad to think he’s getting so big.
I guess that means we need to enjoy what’s left of the snuggly days and make the most of it! Kids grow way too fast, don’t they?
