My Darling (6yo) Daughter has been super affectionate lately. Several events have conspired to create this I believe.
First, in an attempt to save some money and time, I’ve been sleeping in my truck between shifts. This means I am away from home for about 40 hours at a whack. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Next, we went camping last week and that was a lot of fun, and a lot of quality time together. Third, I’ve been working on slowing down, stressing less, and listening more – I think everyone benefits from this. And finally, I promised to take her to the store this afternoon to get a birthday present for her soon to be four year-old brother.
I’m not sure which part of the store excursion most excites her most. Could be the opportunity to have some one-on-one “Daddytime?” Maybe it’s because I promised to give her some money to buy some gifts? Maybe it is just the opportunity to do something special for her Little Brother – she loves to give!
Either way, before the Fam left to run an errand today, she kissed me, cuddled with me, and loved on me – over and over and over again. She was all smiles and cuddles. It was the cutest thing ever.
I feel loved. I am loved.
