Yes, Certainly :)

Yes, he’s 5, but he’s my baby.
Yes, he’s 5 ½ actually, but I’ll jump at the chance to rock him in the eve ~ to hold onto that little boy-ness as long as he’ll let me.

Yes, he may be one of the only big boys in his kindergarten class to have asked to fall asleep against mama’s breast tonight ~ but I affirm he’s one lucky boy to have a mama who says Yes.

    That made me smile. :) Is my little boy really going to be 5 1/2 someday!? I hope he'll still want to snuggle.

    I feel exactly the same way.
    My boy is also 5 1/2, and I still jump at the chance to cuddle him (he still likes to nurse too!). I find it so wonderful with the closeness and I will nurture him this way for as long as he wants me to.
    I'm sure a lot of the parents of his kindergarten classmates would find this strange, but we find it completely natural…the way it is meant to be.
    He still sleeps with his Mama and Daddy, and I wouldn't change a thing!
    Hold onto your kids.
