Little Buddy Kisses and Sub-plots

It's time for Viclit's Celebrate the Small Things!

Today I am celebrating chubby little arms wrapping around my neck and sloppy kisses in my hair.  After two years of cuddling my youngest son, kissing his fuzzy head and telling him "I love you" he is returning it to me in the sweet way only a toddler can.  He even says "uv you" in my ear.  Two may be a challenging age in some aspects but parts of it are just wonderful.

My second celebration is that I have an idea for a sub-plot that makes me want to sit down and write it now (even though I have a mile long to do list..).  I think it will add some depth and intrigue to my main plot and the idea came just in time.  I have a week to figure it out before JuNoWriMo starts.
Now I am off to make some of my favorite coffee and start tackling my to do list!

  1. My four year old (who is the cuddler) is starting to grow out of it. He still gives me hugs and kisses but they're not the same, they're much quicker and he rarely climbs into my lap for a snuggle anymore. While I enjoy seeing him grow up, my heart is breaking a little.

    1. It is bitter sweet when they get bigger. My oldest is starting to be all boy and less cuddly.

  3. During your breaks, sip coffee and write down subplot ideas, and grab as many hugs as you can!

  5. A child's reciprocal love and first words of endearment are indeed things to celebrate! As are great ideas!

  6. I remember teaching my son to squeeze my hand three times, our secret way of saying "I love you." Those early years a precious and go by too fast.
