There’s a super sweet new cuddle your toddler challenge hitting the socials, giving us all the warm, fuzzy feels and boosting our parenting egos!

Ever wondered how do you compare to your tot’s favourite television show? Do they break concentration to cuddle or (eep) are you swiftly dismissed, delivering a low blow to the self-esteem? Luckily we know bribes can turn this around. Ice cream anyone? #toldyouso

#CuddleChallenge : the toddler edition

Seen on TikTok (yes, I’m still there) and Instagram, more and more videos are popping up of parents stealthily recording themselves creeping up on their kids while they’re fixated on watching TV. The challenge is to lay your head in your kid’s lap. And then await their reaction. If any. Good or bad. Gulp.

A true test of their love if you will. I joke. Sort of. #itsatest

@tayandthetwinsReally didn’t expect this reaction 🥺 ##cuddlechallenge ##toddler ##mom ##parenting ##challenge ##MyBFF ##fyp ##ChiliDogYum ##foryou♬ original sound – jamesblake

It’s a super cute and refreshingly harmless challenge (unless you cop a swat to go away) which reminds us that parenting isn’t always like Groundhog day. It’s not all spilled drinks, changing nappies and wiping sticky fingers. It’s warm and fuzzy (kinda sticky and hairy) cuddles too. Which is what we need right now when the days seem 36 extra hours long while stuck at home.

@mommamoon17I needed this today. Time is fleeting. Stay awhile. ##toddlersoftiktok ##toddlerchallenge ##cuddlechallenge ##momsoftiktok ##momlifeiscrazy ##butworthit ##oc♬ original sound – jamesblake

Your turn!

We dare you to have a go with your kids. How do you think they’d react? Will there be a warm and tender embrace coming your way or an arched back tantrum that your big mum-bun hair is blocking their view of their much-loved Bluey?

@rachlynnrogersShe’s our best blessing! ##toddler ##cuddlechallenge ##momsoftiktok ##toddlermom ##toddlersoftiktok♬ original sound – jamesblake

So without further ado, saddle up and go in for a sneaky cuddle – you might just be surprised!
