My six year old boy still loves his cuddles. He is a bit of a Mummy’s boy if I’m truthful, but that seems to go along with being kind, sensitive and not overly boisterous, so I’m happy with that. If I go away for a few nights he wants to make up for the cuddles he’s missed out on and he goes into cuddle overdrive.
His favourite type of cuddle is either the mummy pick me up and give me a great, big, bear hug kind or the cuddle up properly on a sofa or bed type. I’m surprised that sometimes he wants a cuddle in the playground before he goes into school, even though his school friends are there.
I love that I still get so many cuddles, but I do worry a bit about it. I worry that he is too dependent on me. I worry that he will get teased by his friends. I worry that there will come a day when he doesn’t want his cuddles any more.
