Affection is the glue that keeps families together. I feel lucky that my children are so affectionate with one another. For the most part… but now when I really think about it… maybe all of those hugs aren’t quite so sweet and loving.
Maybe those hugs aren't tender embraces at all! Maybe this is really a head lock. (Look at that grip!) Maybe this is why she screams so much?
Like the song says, "Love hurts..." Apparently, in more ways than one.
Even if it is indeed a head lock, I'm going to continue to believe it's a hug. Just a really tight hug.
