Mommy's Helper

We had some friends (FRIENDS! I know! I lured them with strawberry shortcakes) over the other night, and as one of them was indulging Nora in her extensive cuddling habit, she said, "Oh, it must be so nice to have a cuddly baby!!"

While it is nice sometimes that Nora wants to cuddle, it's not nice that she needs to be plastered to me ALL THE TIME. I think I was trying to cook dinner when I took the above pictures.

As I type this, she's at my side, pulling at my arms. And, I've already paused 3 times to play patty-cake.

I realize this is every mom's lament (well, every mom of a toddler), but does she really have to follow me around and undo everything I've done 1 second after I do it? This is what it looks like when I try to hurry and load some dishes in the dishwasher.

Ah... this too shall pass and you'll be begging her for a hug or to speak to you at all. Also, I bet it keeps her busy for several minutes in the dishwasher and only takes you 30 seconds to fix it again. Hang in there.

I think today I might have told Mia to stop touching me. But I know that one day I will wish that she would.
