Needy Mama

I have become one very needy mama.  Ever since Lilah stated giving kisses on a reasonably reliable basis, I find myself constantly asking her, "Can I have a kiss?" and, "Give Mama a kiss," and "Lilah, Lilah, Mama wants a kiss!"  There's a good chance I may sound like a creepy mom stalking my own baby.  But I can't help it.  And occasionally my begging pays off, and she throws a little love my way.  Those two seconds where she grabs my ears as if they are handles, pulls me in close and plants one on me with a big flourish of "Mmmmmwah!" are totally worth the rejection my requests are met with the other 75% of the time.  And I'm totally willing to overlook the fact that she's a sloppy kisser with bad aim and I usually have to wipe her slobber off my entire face.  Her kisses are only marginally less welcome when she has a runny nose or food all over her face.  Man, the things I put up with - I must be one smitten kitten!

Attempting to steal a kiss from the Lilahbility


  1. I know this seems to be a super-cuddly huggy, mmmmwaaaaah phase. I don't want it to end!

  2. I don't think Juju does kisses, but just a few days ago I said, "Juju, can I have a hug?" and out of the blue she have me a huge bear hug! I think she learned it from her grandma, and it was a lovely surprise. :)

  3. I smother my 2yr old with kisses all the time. I say get all the kisses in that you can because the non-stop kissing time ends all too soon.


Comments: I love 'em. Tell me what you think!
