Love, Hugs, and Kisses Galore



“What Kyle?'”

“I love you.”

“I love you too, Kyle.”

Kyle and I have this conversation at least 15 times per day. He just likes to let me know how he feels. It sure is nice to hear.

He has also been excessively cuddly lately. In saying he is excessively cuddly, I mean excessively cuddly for him. Usually he is going 90 miles an hour every which way, so to see him take the time to sit down and snuggle is very sweet. He just wants to be with us, even though he is always with us. Silly boy.

Also, we have a nightly routine when he is going to bed. He climbs in bed after telling Daddy goodnight and Mama tucks him in. He gets his blanket and waits for his kisses.

Oh, the kisses.

It started out with a ‘real’ kiss, which is on the lips, and one on the forehead. Now he gets an Eskimo kiss, a ‘cat’ kiss (where we rub cheeks), a ‘real’ kiss, a kiss on each eye, and a forehead kiss. It is quite the production.

Apparently, this is no longer enough.

In the last week he has tried to slip in an ear kiss, a chin kiss, a hand kiss, and a hair kiss. You would think that this kid does not get enough kisses or something. It is something else.

I guess I should take all I can get before he turns 3 or 4 or 5 and no longer wants any kisses from Mommy because it is icky.

Oh, he had better never do that. I will simply not allow it.

New conversation to have 15 times per day:


“Will you always give your Mama kisses?”




I am going to hold you to that Kiddo!



  1. Precious!! He is such a sweet boy!!

  2. What a gorgeous boy!! He's really growing up! I swear boys are way more cuddly and free with the I love yous! but what do I know? I just can't get enough of the hugs, kisses and "I love you mommy". One day he won't want to do it as much and it will break my I'm cashing in NOW!!
