Today my maternal side got a real workout. First we had a 1-year-old join us for breakfast. She let me hold her on my lap and peel orange segments for her to feed on - what a treat. And my two nieces, 6 and 9 years old, stayed the whole day and were cuddly and ticklish and chatty and just loads of fun. And during the day, our big kid bent down to give me hugs once in a while, and the small kid and I had an afternoon nap together. So much cuddling, such a special Christmas.
