How my three boys all face the day so differently. My oldest (5) he would really like to lay in bed and cuddle with us as long as there are cartoons on television. The three year old wants to be fed. Right Away. Not even a few minute delay. If he's forced to endure lots of cuddles, then he waits, impatiently for the presentation of food. And the baby does not want to cuddle. At 18 months old, he wants to be taken downstairs and given a drink so he can go play right away.
Their mommy? She'd like ten more minutes of uninterrupted sleep.
