Now that I'm a parent, I realize that I will never be able to kiss my babies enough. I think, on the conservative side, I probably give them around 1000 kisses a day, each. They never seem to mind, but they don't usually ask for it either (as if I'd give them a chance...). And I'm noticing that I'm starting to have to fight for some of those kisses as they get older.
Lately, Penn has not wanted to go to bed without "a snuggle." Our deal is that if he and Jude lay down quietly for a few minutes without playing, knocking on the door, or turning the lights on, I'll come back in for a kiss and a snuggle. Usually, they are both asleep by the time I get back in there. So, reminded of my sweet mom, I started going back in and planting a set of fresh, pink lips on their foreheads or cheeks so I have proof that I actually kept my word.
