WHAT I LEARNED THIS WEEK
It's one of my greatest joys as a mom..... snuggling my little one, laughing, tickling on the bed, smothering him with little kisses all over. Including those soft, shiny little lips.
These days, I almost feel like a silly, nervous girl on a date when I'm with my little John Boy. After having my kisses turned down several times, I still haven't given up. Will he let me kiss him? Will he say "eeeewwwww!" Will he relish every kiss and ask for more? At what point will I get my last sugary kiss on the lips?
The other day, we were laughing our heads off, snuggling, giving each other butterfly kisses. The shiny little smiling lips were beckoning me. I just couldn't resist. I leaned in, got him right on the lips, and made a long, sqeaking sound, then proclaimed... "I SMOOCHED YOU!"
He thought this was the funniest thing he'd ever heard.
And. He. Wanted. More.
Apparently in an almost 3 year old's mind, there is a huge difference between a kiss and a smooch. Umm..... ok. You can bet you won't hear me complaining!
