The Ultimate High

I've found it.

The ultimate high.

It's better than drugs.

Better than fame or money or seeing your name in print.

Better than sex or chocolate, or sex and chocolate.

Better than Starubucks Caramel Frappuccinos with whipped cream.

Better than a three-some with McDreamy and McVet.

Better than 1,000 comments on a blog post.

And it's free, and I have an unlimited supply.

My baby has started giving me hugs.

I love the hugs! You are so right, hugs are the ultimate high. Even better than a foursome with McDreamy, McSteamy and McVet. With chocolate.

Enjoy them!

But if you had 1000 comments AND the hugs.

Oh shit. Now that's a high, right?

I love this! My baby (he's 2) started telling me he loves me and giving me kisses while he holds my face. Better than crack...well, not that I would know what crack is like, but I'm sure you get my meaning!

I hear ya, the best drug ever! Just wait until baby starts saying "I love you". You will be as high as a kite. BTW, you look so young and skinny. If I didn't like you I would hate you!

Blogger PunditMom said...

What a great pic! And the hugs get even better as they get older. And then words start going with them, like, "Mommy, I love your face!"

Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Oooh, I cannot wait to hear him say "I love you" AND call me "mommy" AND give me a hug! Oy, motherhood!

And to those who said I look young and skinny, you are so sweet, but I should tell you that I like to use a body double for pictures in my blog posts.

Hugs are priceless!

My four-year-old still loves to climb in bed with me in the morning and cuddle (when I'm not working). But on the days I have off, it almost makes our time more special because it isn't an everyday occurence.

Get all the hugs you can - I'm told they stop from about age 11 - 25 :)

Blogger Christina said...

I love baby hugs. They really are the best.

Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Linus: I hear they stop giving them around the pre-teen years too. But I'm still in denial!

The only thing that can pull me out of a daydream with McDreamy, McSteamy and McVet is the sound of my son's voice saying, "I wanna hold you, Mama."

There is nothing like it. You are so right.

My son, at about 4 1/2 years old, told me one night as I kissed him before bedtime:

"Do not kiss me ever again. Not on the day I die, not on the day before I die."

I sneaked in some sideways hugs and snatched a few quick kisses on the top of his head in the next few years but it has been a loooooooong time since I got a good hug out of him. Now, I think my kid is an extreme example but soak up all the lovin' you can while you can, MotR!

(I do still have a huggy little girl who I am quite thankful for!)

P.S. This is a TOP SECRET story everyone. My son will not be happy when if he ever realizes I told the entire blog'verse that story! ;)

Oh, that is the sweetest thing and the other thing that struck me is that you are SKINNY girl - who needs a gym?? certainly not you or did the phone calls from what his name? Rick?? get you to going? You look fantastic!!!

Oh....there is nothing more redeeming than the hug from your wee one. Frame that photo. It speaks volumes about love.

You're right, that is an amazing high.

Blogger lildb said...

if I didn't adore you quite as much as I do, I might admit to being a wee bit jealous of the hugging.

but you prolly guessed I might say something of the sort.

I'm so goddamn predictable. how do you stand me? gah.

but the photo, minus my jealousy, is swoon-licious.

Damnit how cute.

When I first started reading, I thought you might just be on drugs thinking that anything is better than Starbucks or chocolate....but Jeez! That really is the best high in the world. I agree...

Hugs from your baby are the bestest hugs in the world!!

PS - I'll post a link this Fri for a free sample of the Sunsilk shampoo for US residents! :)

I couldn't agree with you more on this one! Snuggle Bug gives the best hugs. He's even started to pat on on the back as he's hugging us. :)

I have to agree, there is nothing better in the whole world, until he starts saying I love you without you saying it first. I can't decide which made me cry more, lol.

Awwww...I wish I knew where I could nominate you for the "cutest blogging moment." this is too sweet.

The other day I woke up and my baby was sleeping with her head on my chest..I didn't feel her move to that position, but my heart just melted when I woke up to it.
