Golfergirl walked up to me today and said her Hug Meter was low. I asked her what she meant by that. She looked at me and said "I have not had enough hugs today and the meter is low" It was so cute. Of course I hugged her. She was really limp in the beginning and the longer I hugged her the less limp she became. She said "As the hug meter got full she got stronger" It just made me want to cry. I told her anytime her "Hug Meter" was low just let me know and we would fill it to the brim.
I love these times with her. I know the days of the tween years are coming since she just turned 9 but boy do I love these times. I am so glad that I became a SAHM. It has made the budget kinda hard to meet some months but I would not give up this time with her for anything.
So don't forget to hug your child today because their Hug Meter could be low also.
