What Trumps a Kiss?


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!

So what have you learned this week?

Cute post. Going to remember this b/c I'm dreading the day my 3 y.o. runs away from my kisses.

My 3 yo son is so there--I'll have to try this. He does let me kiss him sometimes but he won't kiss me back or say "I love you."

Ha! Kids. I'll keep that in mind for the days when my 3-year-old says, "No kissie!"

Oh, so sweet. My Bubby turned down a kiss today. I just told him the deal is that moms always get kisses. No matter what.
