Grumpy Snuggles {The Ordinary Moments}

Moo is at an age which is quite testing, she knows how to throw a paddy and typically they always happen at the wrong time.. I kind of get why she does it, but then in reality I think, just stop, its over..

This weekend was a full on weekend, I hosted a little dinner on Friday night and an over tired Moo let us know she was around. Stomping and scowling was on the cards and it wasn’t much fun to watch..

But along with those moments I tend to get “grumpy snuggles” and although i shouldn’t give in, I just can’t pass up a moment like this.. She was well passed tired and although there were still moments of scowling, I kind of enjoyed these little cuddles.. Even if I could sense a grumpy little 6 year old..

These are the hard bits of parenting which I can tell you are no fun. These are the parts I struggle with and find really testing, but after the storm had blown over all was calm and I had that gorgeous smiley girl back..

    She’s so cute, even when grumpy. I know the feeling about the grumpiness- we are getting our fair share of it here as well. It’s just her testing the boundaries and figuring out her feelings, and more often than not happens when she is tired, but it’s quite tiring at times. x

      Oh I agree.. When things like this pop up {Easter, Christmas, Birthdays etc…} I always see a change, it’s like children can’t handle it!! Haha! It’s very testing, but the good always weigh out the bad! xx

    Aww poor little love she does look tired and a little overwhelmed with all the feelings and not knowing what to do with them! Kitty has moments where she just can’t cope and has a little melt and yes you do get lovely cuddles when she just needs that reassurance!

    We seem to be seeing a lot of a little grumpy face at the moment too, and it’s draining. It is very sweet that despite being in a grump she stills wants Mummy cuddles. xxx

    I do secretly love the grumpy snuggles. Z is going through a huge emotional phase right now where you say no and he bursts into tears instantly. He did it twice in the place we went to eat and I could only whisper “shhhhhh” – the cuddles are great though 🙂
