Mummy Cuddles {The Ordinary Moments}

There is really nothing like cuddling your baby. Even cuddling them when they’re not a baby anymore – They’ll always be your baby. LP loves cuddles but she loves them on her terms, when she wants them and not when you want a cuddle – Definitely not if you ask for one – Unless you’re upset, then she’ll willingly give you a cuddle because, as everyone knows, cuddles fix everything.

There are times when LP needs a cuddles. When she’s hurt herself or when she’s been naughty and wants to be forgiven instantly. At these times she’ll say – 9 times out of 10 – “Cuddle Mummy” and come as quickly to me as her little legs will take her. I’ll crouch down and she’ll put her arms around me and bury her face in my neck, waiting for me to put my arms around her before she’ll climb up on my lap, her legs around my waist, clinging on so that she gets as much of the Mummy Cuddle as possible.

At these times LP becomes a limpet. She won’t be prised away from me for anything and the only thing to do is cuddle and be cuddled. I stand up and she stays there, legs around my waist, arms around my neck, clinging on tightly and hugging me for all her worth. When we’re at home I’ll usually go and sit on the sofa until she’s all cuddled out and she’ll face one way with the cuddle then do a huge sigh and turn her head to face the other way, repeating this and snuggling in until, eventually, she’s done with cuddles. LP then climbs off my lap and carries on with whatever she was doing before.

The cuddle finished until LP next chooses to give you a cuddle.

  1. This is such a lovely post! My little boy is 15 months and he has just started coming to me to give me cuddles and kisses (rather than it being me smothering him because he is so darn cute….) It makes my heart melt and I hope they continue for as long as possible! xx

  2. Aww, cuddles are lovely – and great photos too 🙂

    I’m enjoying all my snuggles from Isobel at the moment because although Sebastian and Daphne constantly request ‘mummy hugs’ they usually only last a second or two – they stop being cuddly so quickly x

  3. Awww… limpet cuddles are definitely the best. One of the lovliest things to hear them say is “I want a cuddle”. Such a lovely post.

  4. Oh so lovely. It’s so nice you had this moment captured on camera, too. My little boy loves his mummy cuddles too, but also only on his terms. I cherish every single one because you never know when he’ll next be in the mood! That little head in your neck is just the best feeling, isn’t it.
