I read a friends’ blog the other day and she talked about how cute and clever her little boy was. I laughed because I know exactly where she was coming from (along with thinking “If only she could see MY kids right now!).
I know I have rose coloured glasses on when it comes to my kids. I’m not blinded to the fact that they both have tantrums and fight, but I suppose I prefer to look at them in a positive light.
Megan is three and a half now and is “Miss Independant”. She amazes me with the things she can do and the complex thoughts she talks about and conversations we have. Alex is almost two and I gush when he talks about things I can actually understand!
So any opportunity I have to give them a kiss, I take it! At the moment, they dont mind. I get the odd “Muuuuuummmm!!” while squimring away from me, but most of the time I get big sloppy, dribbly (in Alex’s case!) kisses right back. I know when they are 12 or 13, it will be SOOOOO uncool to kiss mum, so I am building up the kiss bank now!
