LOVE IT!!! I too hate the make the most of it they won't want cuddles when they're however old. So what!? They will still be around to love us even if they don't hug us!

Yep! I seriously wish I'd read this when my DS was a newborn/infant...

Oh no they won't cuddle us in bed?
Who would want that with a grown son or daughter anyway? how creepy..
The thought of sprawling out in my own bed, going out whenever I want, sleeping in on weekends (I'm looking at you DS3) and having all that freedom back sounds like heaven to me- and they still love us! Just as grown adults who are now not only our children but (with luck) some amazing life long friends
I can so relate to this article: I get what they're saying to appreciate your children- but there's a time, a place and a way to word it that is so much more pleasant! Like perhaps while having a coffee together when they're playing nicely- "oh look at those beautiful babies! You must be so proud/appreciative to have such lovely children!"
Not "appreciate your kid when you haven't slept in days and are elbow deep in ****, one day it won't be like this!"
Of course we appreciate them and enjoy them- but that's just not the kind of emotion to be felt during the hardest of moments- as if these people weren't crying on the toilet some nights all those years ago

You been stalking my Facebook?
I posted it last night
It's so relatable! I can't treasure the here and now always because my kids do my trucking head in some days!!

Ha ha no I haven't :-)
But nomsie, you know you really should enjoy those little moments. They are only tiny parasitic life-sucking poo-exploding tantrum-having creatures for a moment! Blink and you'll miss it, even though you don't have time to blink :-)

I saw this on facey this morning. Bloody awesome. Wish this article was floating around when DS was a newborn and I was drowning.
