This was the first image that popped into my head when I read the word "cling" over at Penelope's. Little kids are always in search of their mama's love and attention even if it means clinging for dear life!
I remember hanging onto my own mother's legs or purse as a child, and I would bury my face into her thigh. Now I find history repeating itself as my own kids like to cling like little monkies on my legs. (And, um, no that's not my arse in the illo! Hee hee) While this clinging is bothersome at times, there's nothing like the feeling of being the source of comfort and protection for your own babes!!!
