This is a question for people with older or grown up kids: do you miss them?
I’ve been hyper aware lately of how delicious it feels when Love Bug wraps herself around me – whether it’s her baby koala clinging onto it’s mumma snuggle when she’s first out of bed, or the full body throw into my arms at kindy pick up, or when she just sidles up to me wherever we are and cuddles my leg or kisses my hand or just generally makes contact with me and showers me in love.
I know I have many more years to soak it up. We are a very affectionate family too so I’m pretty sure she’ll always cuggle me … just not as much as she does now.
Do you miss it? Do you miss them?

My younger person isn’t so young anymore and he came back home after college so I don’t miss him at all. He’s still here. But my person says if he gets a job where he has to move then she will miss him. I guess me too.
Oh I can’t even think about when she’s that grown up Bongo. I’m just going to soak up all the little girl loves I can!
Peanut is 20 now. She came home from college this weekend “to do her wash.” Or did she just need a “mommy moment.” Changing from a adult child relationship to adult adult is weird, but wonderful. I miss the baby cuddles but live the big girl conversations. She will always cuggle you, just in a different way.
I meant “love” not “live”. But that works too. Lol.
I was hoping you’d respond! 😉 x
My daughter was never a cuddler, the boys loved to cuddle until they became teens. I’m really not sure you could have called me a cuddler either. Those were my young years and I was always busy.
