Nothing More Comfy Than Daddy {The Ordinary Moments}

Katie’s just got back from holiday so I’m hosting this week’s Ordinary Moments again to give her a chance to unpack and get sorted before getting back to the computer! If you’d like to link up you can do so at the end of the post.

Often when the children are at home their Daddy is at work but, depending on his shifts and the day of the week they can grab a couple of hours together in the morning or after he finished work in the early evening. Seeing the children’s faces light up when they see Daddy for the first time that day is always so lovely – he really is one of their favourite people and they save the best cuddles for Daddy.

Often, after school on for the last couple of hours on a weekend afternoon, we’ll watch TV, let the children play on their tablets and just relax. It’s our quiet time, where we each do our own thing but together.

During this time LP and Little Man will often choose to snuggle up with Daddy, have a cuddle or, in Little Man’s case, try to occupy the same space as him, laying on his like Daddy is part of the furniture.

I love how close the children are to their Daddy, how much they clearly love him but how they only realise they’ve missed him when he comes in from work, they rush to him and jump all over him. The best part for us, as parents, is these times of togetherness. Happy together, just being. But, for the children, they love nothing more than being as close to us as possible – and we can’t complain. I hope cuddles are part of our lives indefinitely – although one day Little Man may get too heavy for cuddles like this!

  1. That’s a fab picture! My girls are the same when daddy gets home, they can’t get to him fast enough. Holly won’t even give him chance to pick him up, she just wraps herself around his leg. I love seeing little ones with their daddies, they are special moments. I hope that cuddles stay forever too. Thanks for hosting this week x

  2. I love the bright colours in your room and Daddy’s socks certainly add to that. Great photo. I love pics that capture real life moments. My two love climbing on Daddy too ????????x

  3. Brilliant photo, they both look so chilled out. Mine are the same with their Dad, when he sits down they all go sit on him or next to him, they sometimes do with me but they know I don’t sit still for very long! Its lovely that you are hosting for Katie so she can get back to normal, its always so crazy after an holiday xx

  4. Its like this with Daddy in our house too. I love how the kids light up at tea time when he gets home and they can’t wait to chat about their days and find out about his. Its so nice isn’t it to know there are amazing dads in this world x

  5. Lovely post 🙂 I feel like it’s because they do have the time apart from him, (it’s the same with my other half) it kind of gives them the chance to miss him! It’s not that they want their daddy more, they just probably see you more! 🙂

  6. Oh that’s so adorable, he looks so comfy! I think my husband misses out on things like this a little bit because of his injury. Still plenty of cuddles but the climbing on him and playing together has to all be a bit more careful.
