Why You Shouldn't Cuddle Your Kids

Tonight, I crawled into bed with Miguel to cuddle for awhile. He told me all about the difficulties in being a kid, about how hard it is to fit in when you are in elementary school. He said that, sometimes, he misses being little because it was more fun and I told him that I understood that because as you get older your responsibilities increase. He nodded knowingly. Then, he said: Sometimes I feel sad for you. You've done everything worth doing in life. You're done.

Kids...they say the sweetest things.

He went on to say that my best years were probably behind me because the only thing I had to look forward to was being a grandmother and THEN?! He followed up all that with, "Mom, that zit on your chin is big."

I hope he doesn't freeze to death outside tonight.
