|Attempting to steal a kiss from the Lilahbility|
Sunday, November 7, 2010
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!
