Picture this: It's after bath time and my squeaky clean little girl who smells like shampoo and baby lotion is curled up on her bed with her blanky and stuffed giraffe. We've already read through our tried and true favorites and she looks up at you with her big green eyes and says, "Mommy, will you snuggle with me?" You think your heart would just melt with love right? Well it shouldn't because snuggling in our house is serious business and when she asks me to snuggle before bed I get sweaty palms and rapid breathing.
Don't put your arm there mommy. Hold me tighter. Not so tight. You're on the wrong side of the bed. I need more room. Ugh, you're in my way. Nooooo, not like that.
I swear there is more anxiety centered around snuggling than there was around potty training. God help her poor husband.
