Danny is four, and he has always been my little snuggler. The last of the line, and always wanting to "cuddle buddle." Well, today we were watching Zaboomafu (sp?), and I pulled him up on my lap for a cuddle. He looked me in the eye and said "Mom, I just really want to be alone right now." When I asked why, he said "I don't know, I'm just really tired of talking to you today." Um, ok.
Well, at least he was honest about it. So I grabbed a book and layed down in my room with the door open for a little while.
So I guess he is setting healthy boundaries. He was not at all harsh about it, just very matter-of-fact.
