A Kiss

Kaitlyn doesn't hand out kisses left and right so when we get one we make a big deal out of it. We do the same kind of song and dance parents do when a child finally uses the potty. Yesterday Kaitlyn came up to me with her lips stuck out. I quickly turned my cheek to her for the impending kiss I was about to receive. As soon as her lips made contact I broke into my normal praise and excitement over receiving a kiss. It goes something like this which is repeated with clapping and happy moves until the point has gotten across, "Oh, thank you, thank you. I got a kiss, I got a kiss..." As soon as I was done with my victory dance Kaitlyn looked at me and sweetly said, "spit". I put my hand on my cheek and sure enough... She didn't kiss me she was spitting on me. Here I had made a big deal about a kiss I never received. Spitting is her new thing; it's blowing bubbles until they slide down her chin usually, but she is working on perfecting her technique.

That's so funny. They seem to love to slime us more than love on us. Kids are awsome!
