Missing Q Cuddles

There are some days when I savor being at the office. I drink them up slowly and with relish, like the hot chai latte that I often treat myself to in the morning. Uninterrupted work sessions. Chatting with other adults. It almost feels like an indulgence.

Then there are other days, like today, when I do not feel at peace. Something is lacking. And I know exactly what it is. Q has been particularly cuddly and yummy lately, so to go for several hours without his presence produces a feeling of unease. To not smell his skin. To not feel his drool-y (yes, still) face pressed against mine. Oh, how I miss my cuddle buddy and all of his endearing qualities.

His contagious energy. Which I'm in desperate need of lately.

His endless charm. 
Flirting with our neighbor

It's days like this when I count down the hours until I'm kicking it with my Q. Until he headbutts me so hard that I get whiplash. And then it's back to wishing I was in my office, chai in hand.


  1. I remember feeling that same way when I worked in the office briefly when Nya was smaller. Some days, just sitting at my desk and having peace and quiet was like heaven. Other days, sitting at my desk without my little girl were torture. And, that's what it is, I think. Some days are good and others are bad. I wish I had some advice, but I don't. Sorry. Just be sure to cuddle when you can. Those moments are so precious!

  2. I do love when little boys are such flirts!

  3. Ahhh...the bitersweetness of being a working mom. XO. Hope you get lots of cuddles today :)

  4. Dang, he's cute. :)
