My oldest is loves snuggling just as much as when he was small, but then again he is only turning 5 next week.
It's funny though, because my two are both affectionate with dh and I and also with each other, but in very different ways. For example, ds#1 looooves to snuggle early in the morning, at storytime and at night. I mean, he is cuddly other times, but he especially loves to snuggle at those times.
My youngest, however, loves to be held and will just jump into my arms often throughout the day for hugs and kisses. But, he jumps out of bed in the am after a long nurse-- no dillydallying for him.
Anyway, I was like ekblad, ther was little or no affection in my family growing up. Oh, maybe when we were younger, but certainly not as we grew.
I agree that it is wonderful that you are aware and making the effort to be close with your children. I remember knowing a few families that just seemed so comfortable and ease with each other. I hope and wish for this with my family and hopefully it will continue on and on and on...
I will bet that you are doing a great job Kel!
And that you and your kids are all very connected. You are probably just at a busy time right now with the little one being a toddler and all.
