My kids will tell you that I am extremely affectionate with those I love. I have been that way for my whole life. When my kids were “littles” I loved those special moments when they would crawl up in my lap and snuggle with me; their little heads nestled in my neck, and a warm blanket wrapped around us, keeping us warm. To this day, when I am around someone holding a baby, I will find myself rocking back and forth…in fact, I am rocking back and forth as I write this, just thinking about holding my children. I miss those times. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed watching my children grow into amazing adults. They are beautiful, kind, funny, witty, talented, amongst other things, and I love being around them. But, what I wouldn’t give to have a few moments with them both as “littles” again. Their sweet innocence, precious personalities, and overall little lumps of sweetness that I could snuggle. I am truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to be their mama. I cannot express how much I love them each.
“Snuggles With My Littles” was painted to capture those precious moments with my babies (yes, they are still, and always will be my babies). While my babies are grown, I now get to snuggle with my grand babies. You can’t imagine that you can love anyone like you love your children…and then grand babies come along. They are amazing…and even look a lot like my kiddos, so it’s a lot like snuggling with my babies all over again. Yes, I am truly blessed.
