My man is in the military. He left for more training, today. So--I'm a little blue. I always get sad when he leaves but it's nothing like how miserable I feel when the babies go away. I know that they're 11, 9, and 7... But they are my babies, regardless of their ages.
So--the man is gone and the children remain. Which is preferred to the children leaving while the man remains. This is because the children consistently do adorable things and walk around the house with happiness vibes, frequently. Hubby does not. My love has a habit of complaining that I find irritating. But that's his only problem, these days. Not that it matters, at present, because he's gone!
I have to remind or coax the man to do the things that I like to do--like cuddle. Luckily, my man enjoys cuddling. You can't be my man unless you do. This fact is usually brought up on a first date: "Do you like cuddling?" and the guy frequently says, "Not really." This forces me to say, "I don't think it's going to work out. You'd hate me."
Because of the man leaving and a considerable amount of my cuddle time is now removed; I'm tempted to employ a mandatory 5-minute cuddle session out of each child per day. I think they will tolerate such a request for the betterment of mommy's overall health. If they protest, I can merely site the various documentaries that I've forced them to watch on the importance of being loving. Then, they will surely offer the cuddle.
The kitty-cat cuddles with me, frequently. I'm convinced this is why she has lived so long. She gives and receives a lot of love to/from me. The littlest child likes to cuddle--but if she and I cuddle for too long, the other kids gets pissed. Then I have to remind them that they can cuddle me at any time--then they say that they're too old (so what's the problem, then???)
However--if I make the cuddle MANDATORY--each child getting the same amount of time--I could get in some needed cuddle time PLUS I get cuddles from more people. I prefer to love many over one or two (but I made certain vows--so I have to stay merely a cuddler... especially with regard to the kids).
I'm going to cuddle right now with Tater (my cat--I got her second hand! I'd never choose such a stupid name!)
I WUV YOU VERY MUCH! I'd put a l33t cuddle here--but I don't do l33t speak very well. Much better with Spanish (and I'm crap at that, too),
