Mckenna snuggles are very rare. She doesn’t like to be touched. The most we typically get, is a type of haphazard head lean where she might touch her forehead or shoulder to us in her a form of a hug. We take what we can get.
Lately, she has been instigating this above scenario with Jeff. This is how it goes down.
Jeff is working on the computer.
Mckenna comes up and leans her head against his right shoulder.
Keeps leaning until he has to swivel his chair out from under the table and fully recline to accommodate the way she leans and climbs and folds up onto him.
Folds onto his lap and curls up with her head on his chest.
Sometimes they talk, but she likes the silence.
He makes her laugh.
He sits like this with her until she is ready to get up. He would sit like this for hours.
I get jealous (not really) and want her in MY arms. He knows it and being the tease that he is, has to rub it in, just a little bit.
Then she gets up and shuffles off, leaving us wondering why she came to connect. And why she left.
We know that when moments like this arise with Mckenna, we have to stop and give them to her or we miss out.
She helps remind us to live the way we want to live.
