Cuddles and Nap


#1 is totally Miss Independent. She wants to do everything herself. Repeatedly, she tells us “leave me alone,” “let me do it,” and “don’t touch me.”

But yesterday?

Yesterday. She was having a hard time taking a nap. She asked me to rub her hair. I did.

Then, on a whim, I scooped her up and cuddled her. Wrapped her up in my arms and laid down with her.

And the little girl that hasn’t let me take a nap with her in over 2 years? She passed out. She was snoring.

And I Was.In.Heaven! I fell asleep, too.

So, for that one moment. That hour or so, my numero uno was still my baby.

Will you go and vote for my girls here, please? We’re number 7! Of course, I’m partial, but they are too cute:)
