"Stop, Drop, and Roll."

Rotten is a snuggler. This is a nice way of saying "Rotten wants to be held all the time and freaks out a little if put down." It's made a dent in my productivity and housekeeping. I've had to establish a "Stop, Drop, and Roll" policy. As soon as he's out, I stop rocking/bouncing, drop him off in his swing, car seat, or bassinet, and roll on with cleaning, cooking, or time with Stinky. Without this rule, I would not get a single thing done all day.

But sometimes, nothing is okay, too.

He is so cute. I just love that little face.

My kids were like that, too. Just wanting to be held. Of course when they were really new, I just wanted to hold and cuddle them. It will be interesting to see what happens with our next, since I have two older kids who are mostly independent, but still need help from time to time.

Definitely doing nothing is okay sometimes. Make sure you enjoy it, too, and don't waste time feeling guilty.
