When my son was a baby, I would snuggle with him in my arms and on my lap. When he got older, sometimes he would be tired or stressed. When this happened, we had what we called: a "gentle moment".
This is when we would both stop whatever we were doing and hug each other. Not a quick hug sissy hug wither! It was always a special time when either of us need it. He's 18 now but I guarantee if I asked him for a "gentle moment" he'd remember it. It means, I'm running on empty and I need to be filled with your gentle love.
