I don’t always have my phone nearby to take a quick video of my kids, but I wish I could capture what it’s like to pick up my little man in my arms. It’s not a hug or a cuddle, it’s more like getting mauled!
Tonight I scooped him up and held him close, he leaned way back for me to kiss his neck, then he leaned forward to give me a kiss. The only thing is, he kisses with his forehead! So after he headbutts me on the lips he starts grabbing my hair and a smile flashes as he pulls my head towards him. Suddenly I feel like a strong ocean wave just crashed over me and my face is getting pulled under by a pile of arms and hands clawing and grabbing at my eyes and ears. But he’s giggling so I humor him and start pretending to chomp on his chest. Giggles erupt into laughter and he suddenly flails backward and almost out of my arms. I have to react fast and catch him and pull him close to me, which invites another headbutt kiss.
Man, all I wanted was a hug…
In training news, I actually jogged for about three miles tonight. It was 38 degrees out, but I went with a friend who really was able to keep my mind off the pain and push me through it! So the 5k Erica and I will be running in May should be a success. We’ve also already been sponsored for $355.00 so we are over a third of the way to our $1,000.00 goal! If you would like to sponsor TEAM LEE (or TEAM ERICA) leave a comment! Thank you to those who were eager to sign up! Your support means a lot!
