After praying with the kids tonight, my son looked at his dad and very sleepily told him that "mom is the bestest snuggler in the world!" (thus ensuring he had an extra-special snuggle tonight). Then, just before our nightly ritual of kisses and hugs (this comes after praying and before snuggling - rather complicated......), he always says the phrase, "we can snuggle after kissing, 'kay?", to which I usually respond, " 'kay". Tonight, however, after he said his little phrase before I could say my usual response, he said, "mom, you can say that you would be delighted to snuggle me!"
I was delighted to comply.
My heart is like putty.
