Littleman has discovered a new favourite thing: group hugs. We’ve always done a lot of hugging around our house. I suppose there’s been even more of it in the past couple of weeks. One day, D was holding Littleman and they came over to give me a hug together. D said, “group hug!” and they gave me a big squeeze.
Ever since then, Littleman has been asking for group hugs. He wraps his little arms tightly around each of our necks and hollers “group hug!” in his high-pitched voice. It’s awesome.
This might sound a bit cheesy, but sometimes this community of blogs and forums I’ve found feels a bit like a group hug. Even though we’re strangers and dealing with a multitude of difficult situations, it’s nice to get some online hugs from supportive people who understand what I’m going through.
