Some children have a blanket that they can’t sleep without…other’s have a little stuffed animal lovey that will comfort them in any time of distress…But Little Man? No not him. He has what we have lovingly termed, The Arm Cuddle. This is very real. In the middle of Walmart he will decide he wants a cuddle, and the thumb goes in the mouth and he will desperately reach for my arm until he is able to press it against his face and cuddle.
This, as you can imagine, gets some very interesting looks from strangers, but I don’t care! He’s my sweet boy, and I embrace his fun little quirks, The Arm Cuddle included.
P.S. Little Man does have a little Pooh Bear that he sleeps with at night and naps that does serve as a cuddly, so he is not all together odd.
