What I Hope My Daughter Is Like As A Mom

I Hope She's Affectionate
I am all about loving on my little ones. Children need eight to 12 touches a day to feel bonded to a parent. Demonstrating affection doesn't come naturally to everyone, but these connections can be as simple as a pat on the back.

If her current desire to snuggle is any indication, this won't be a problem for my kiddo at all. Her children will know her love through hugs, kisses, and in grand family tradition — boops on the nose.
