Golden Cuddles

Children say funny things

I have written about the terrible twos toddler in two articles, the tiny terror and the tiny terror trapped . She has an older sister, aged 4 years. Children can say the funniest and most profound things. Her older sister told her grandad a few weeks ago that she made golden cuddles in her heart and that her heart never stopped working to make them.

Rainbow Cuddles

The other day, we were asking her about the golden cuddles and she said she didn't have any more but they were now rainbow cuddles! Rainbow cuddles are obviously more valuable than golden cuddles but in her case, a rainbow cuddle is something you have to wait for. The tiny terror wants lifted and cuddled all the time but rainbow cuddles only gives them out occasionally. Last night, I put the two to bed and got offered a rainbow cuddle, so of course, the tiny terror wanted one too. Her big sister told me that THAT was a butterfly cuddle!

Rainbow Diamonds

Today, she was tired and had no rainbow cuddles left but that rainbow diamond cuddles were coming soon!

I just want you to know that these posts do my heart good. They have more to that story as to why, that maybe someday we will share. But for now, please keep these stories coming because they make me feel good, even though they make me cry

I will have a think about some more stories and include some from my children's and niece's childhood too.
