Clingy klingon

Lately Emily's been rather lovely-dovey and huggy-wuggy.

I understand all kids go through a clingy phase and this must be hers. However, at some points the constant neediness can be quite distracting.

The last couple of nights I've had to put a DVD on for her, so I can steal away long enough to put the dinner on. Although, she generally doesn't stay in her chair when she eats as she reaches out for a hug and before toppling over, I end up feeding her from my lap.

I know I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, as when she's a moody hideous teenager I'll be wishing for any acknowledgement of my being, let alone a cuddle or a hug. It's just that too much is sometimes a little too much.
