Bespectacled buddies

Yes, I too often bemoan cold weather, but if I were forced to find something nice to say about it then it’s this. This huddling together on the couch underneath a blanket to get warm. This doesn’t ever get old. I’m sure you cook healthier meals than I do and pack better lunches and can fold a fitted sheet. I have many shortcomings as a parent. But you do not want to challenge me when it comes to cuddling with my kids. When they’re older and are telling stories about me they’ll probably always begin with, “UGH. What was it with Mom and all that cuddling?” And if I’m nearby and can overhear them I’ll be all WOULD IT HAVE KILLED YOU TO MAKE ME A HOT DOG?
