Thmooches and thnuggles

30 Mar

Sometimes I get more than a little annoyed when Gemma comes out of bed 8 times an evening…even though I know it is a side-effect of me wanting her to continue napping for my own quiet time, since napless days see her totally out by 7 pm at the latest.

But she sure knows how to work me, that one.  After managing 3 more bathroom trips and an extra song, when she knows I am about to lay down the line, I hear her little voice from her bedroom doorway.

“Mom? Moooooom? Mommy?”

“Gemma, if you have to go to the bathroom do it yourself.  Otherwise GET BACK in bed.”

“But Mom, pleathe…I just need a thmooch and a big thnuggle.”

“Oh. Ok.  And then you can come sit on the couch with me and watch TV and eat ice cream and candy because you are my favourite girl ever.”

Parenting may not be my forté.

But I do love my thnuggles.  I better take ’em while I can.

    That sounds all to familiar. It’s the same story in our house. Would you really trade anything for those moments. They may be frustrating, but i love them.

    Haha!! Lucas’ line is “I want to snuggle with Mommy in the living room!” Goof!
    Before you know it, she’ll be slamming the door in your face 😉

    Josh’s is pretty close to Gemma’s and Lucas’ lines too. “I want to cuddle with mommy on the couch”. Aw, melts my heart 🙂

    Awww, she is adorable! And I’m not a parent but I think it’s a credit to your parenting if your child wants to thnuggle with you. 😀

    She’ll turn out just fine. My boys all did that at that age and still love hugs AND all sleep a full 9-10hours a night. Enjoy it. Not sure that ice cream would help her fall asleep though.:-)

    Jeremie has a habit of calling downstairs or interrupting and when you say, “What??!” she sweetly goes, “I love you mommy.” How can you get mad at them?
