I’m positive that the only reason that kids actually get sick is to give us Mommies a little cuddle time, without the force or bribery.

My munchkin has come down with a bacterial infection, which will be his 3rd in the last 4-5 months. I’m not sure what’s going on, but we’ll be visiting the specialist to figure it out.

As much as I hate to see him running fevers, coughing and generally not feeling well, I have to admit that I relish these times. These are the only times since he’s turned 2 that I can get cuddles from him that last longer than 2.5 seconds. And it’s the good kind of cuddles, you know where he snuggles up and holds on and I didn’t even have to mention cookies or candy!

But that was Friday.

And well, today the antibiotics have kicked in and basically I’m back to bribing and forcing. But I’ll take those moments anytime I can get them.
