I was recently spending the day with my Grandson. I just love to snuggle him up and squeeze him when he does the cute things he does. Yesterday I realized he really doesn't like to be held so much. My mind started questioning if we didn't rock him enough or hold him enough as a baby. I wondered what was "wrong" that he didn't want to be held.
He's a busy active 2 1/2 year old with so much to do and explore that he doesn't sit still for too long. Today I realized Physical Touch is MY primary love language so I love to hold and snuggle him up but that's probably not his primary love language!
He does love for you to hold his hand when your walking and may want to be carried but if I were to guess, I would say his primary love language will probably be quality time. He loves it when we sit with him while he plays or makes a painting. Yesterday he wanted me to go down the slide with him and be close by as he played on the playground. Even though he's still at the parallel play stage, he seems to be happy when he knows he has our attention. He never stops asking questions and telling us what he's thinking.

But what about YOU? What is your primary love language? Is Quality Time somewhere on the top of your list?
Quality time is in my top 3 but I don't always make the time to spend with my friends. I've actually been working on it and scheduling to see friends I haven't seen in a while and that's what I would love to do for you!
