Cuddle Buddy

I seriously think they make these days to remind you that your single…


Apparently today is National Cuddle Up Day. Yes, like it’s a real thing. The crazy thing is that this is the coldest day of the year thus far for me. Just earlier there were snow flurries. Probably still falling. I mean it’s ice cold. I literally looked at my phone and of course it’s more dry than Don King’s hair!

Meanwhile, I cuddled up with my fleece Five Below pajamas (the best $5 ever spent on Christmas Eve), and watched “Blaze and the Monster Machines” while sipping hot cocoa and marshmallows! Funny thing is that this was while my son slept in my arms!

Certainly, it is the best feeling being a mom, and I especially love the giggles and cuddles with my little boogie! And it is nice that he just wants to snuggle. Such a Mama’s Boy! Sometimes it can be excessive, I mean let me be honest, my kid is clingy!

I wonder where he gets it from?

Oh well…I have a little boy who taps into his emotional brain and is responsibe to touch! Sandbox babes…this is the making of a good man! You will thank me later but Mama Bear still won’t approve!

But on this day, I didn’t mind the cling. The snuggles were so needed to make me feel better after the long, stressful week. Isn’t it amazing how you get all those feel goods (endorphins) released from the touch and affection of a hug and cuddles!

For my couples….cuddling also releases oxytocin, the warm fuzzies that are great for stress release and heart health, and dopamine, that pleasure zone in your brain that instinctively gets you in the mood!!! And the snow is falling. Oh boy…cabin fever = baby making session!

Before the clock strikes midnight, grab you a cuddle buddy and celebrate #nationalcuddleup day! And, if you are cuddled, share how you spent your day!

Hugs 🤗
