a little mush, a little gush

As I do the dishes, I am suddenly aware of an absence in the kitchen. I turn from the pan I'm scrubbing and walk to the bedroom. "Are you sleeping?"
He grunts at me from under a tornado of blankets, twisted around him just the way he likes. "Come snuggle with me."
I hesitate for a moment, pondering the work I'd be prolonging by joining him. There are always dishes to be done, always a house to vacuum, always a bathroom to scour. But there he is, all bundled up, and I know if I decline I'll regret it for the rest of my existence, dramatic or not.
So I sneak through the tangle of comfort he's barricaded himself inside, and he tells me with serious eyes, "this is a nap. You know what's different between sleeping together and napping together? When you're sleeping, you just sleep. When you're napping, you cuddle." And then he wraps me up in his arms and hums the 12 days of Christmas in my ear. 

And I swear every day I think I couldn't love him more, but that would be a sad thing, wouldn't it?


  1. OH my gosh this is precious! Love your blog!

  2. so cute!!! :)

    i totally feel the same way. whenever my husband Brady, does something and I'm thinking of something else less important, I always remind myself I would regret it if I didn't just give him one more kiss or let him snuggle with me, or hug me as soon as I walk in the door.

    always a good reality check!

  3. definitely fallen victim to the same thing in my house. but i've always got time to do the dishes, but my boo's not always around to cuddle.
