A Toddler's Love

Just this evening we were sat as a family of 3.
A family of 3 snuggled up on the sofa.

Mummy, Daddy and Leo snuggled up in the middle.
A position he chose so that he could be in the center.

Daddy's arm was draped around us both and comfortably resting on my shoulder.
All was perfect until Leo saw Daddy being way to close to his Mummy. 

He chose this moment to push Daddy's arm off my shoulder and shouted protectively at him.

Daddy kept his hands to himself after Leo's sudden outburst but Leo kept glancing up to make sure that Daddy had learnt his lesson.

It was then that Leo did the most un-expected, and most loving thing.
He lifted his arm and draped it over my shoulder. 

He snuggled me just like I snuggle him.
All the while he snuggled me, he looked up at his Daddy as if to tell him that I was his.

A toddler's love truly is the most beautiful thing.


  1. Beautiful! Oliver does this with his big brothers, he puts his arms around my neck so tightly that I can't breathe x

  2. So sweet! I can't wait for my little man to be old enough to give cuddles. What a beautiful story :)

    1. It is so special when they start giving you independant cuddles because they want to :) x

  3. Awww, that's such a cute little story. Our little man pulls the funniest face when Daddy kisses me. It's hilarious! X

    1. They really don't like it do they! Parent's need to learn to keep their hands to themselves in front of the kiddies apparently hehe x

  4. So cute! Looks like you have yourself a little gentleman there! x


I love hearing your thoughts, so please feel free to leave me a comment :)
