just you wait, miss sugarpants...



Something happened to my sweet little sunshine princess that made her not want any more "kissies". She still wants hugs, but no kissies. Now if you know me at all, you'll realize, this? Is unacceptable!

What has she resorted to in order to prevent me from kissing her? She sucked her big toe (thank Hera it was clean)!!! Excuse me while I go yak, toss my cookies, call ralph (I knew a Ralph once, he was vomit inducing so, heh, a worthy slang term indeed) on the big white phone, bark at the ants, etc. (On a side note... While I was looking up nifty ways to say vomit on the interwebz - cause that's what the interwebz is all about, eh?- my Chicklet asked me why I was laughing. I told her I had found new ways of saying vomit... She said: Simon Cowell? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah! My child!) Maybe she has a disorder like those people that eat dirt. I'll have to look that up on WebMD.



I used to spend hours kissing her sweet face when she was a baby. Her breath smelled like Granny Smith Apples. And she would give me those big open mouth, wet and drooly, baby eat-your-cheek kissies. I let her drool kiss ME... and now? She turns on me!

"Chicklet, why don't you want kissies?"
"Because, kissies are wet and disgusting."


You know I'm totally reminding her of this when she starts dating, right? Totally.

You might catch fewer bugs.

I hadn't heard the one about ants, or cookies. I quite like "rainbow yawn" ;-)

Desert Songbird said...

That's why we all get ill when a bug comes around; we all kiss ALL THE TIME. We're a very kissy family.

When she starts dating, ask her if she remembers to suck her big toe before going out. *grin*

Desert Songbird said...

Oh, and those baby cheeks? Too irresistible!

Anndi said...

Brian: The kissies are worth it.
The "ants" one is the one that made me laugh out loud!

Songbird: I still get kissies FROM her, but I have to kiss non-skin parts. *sigh*
We mommies are evil, aren't we? *wink*

I know! I think it came from breastfeeding.

Akelamalu said...

No more kisses????? No way!

Anndi said...

Akelamalu: Yeah, that's what I told her.

Charles Gramlich said...

Maybe it's just a phase.

Casey said...

There's nothing like a good toejam smooch, even if you have to pin her down and steal it. I'm in a similar boat, my toddler is so squirmy that I rarely get kisses anymore. Every once in awhile he obliges. His sister is still too little to know better so I kiss her all the time.

DeeMarie said...

Thanks for delurking! :)
Sorry about the kissie thing, but I gotta admit sucking her big toe? You've taught her some fancy defense mechanisms there!!

Anndi said...

Charles: I hope so, that toe sucking thing will.. oh, wait, you meant the kissies didn't you? Yeah, that too! ;)

Casey: Luckily she didn't rub her toe all over her head! Ha! Foiled her!
I find distracting a toddler with something that makes noise will capture their attention long enough for stolen smoochies.

Deemarie: My pleasure! Thanks for stopping by! :)
She is crafty, isn't she?

Turnbaby said...

I'm buying the BIG case of pop corn to munch while I watch this little dance over the next few years;-)

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

A passage of sorts. Although, this too WILL pass. Have a good one...

Anndi said...

Turnbaby: You're just mocking me now... harumph!

Bud: Thanks for the encouragement! *sigh*
You too buddy!

Dianne said...

she'll get over it ;)

my son used to push me away in public if he saw his friends coming lol

Sprite's Keeper said...

I personally like the "vomit comet" and the "choo choo spew express", although the second term is more an inside joke thing from my teenage days. Looking at it now, not that funny. So, redact the second thought, and hold onto the first.
Sprite has just started rejecting kisses, at two. When I ask for a kiss, she gives me her cheek. Rude, I tell you!
Thanks for delurking. I'm grabbing a flashlight and heading for your archives soon!

Captain Dumbass said...

No kissing? Totally unacceptable. And after the wet drool kisses? Aren't those the best? I started sniffing my youngest's (no that's not correct, but I'm not fixing it) ear recently and whispering that I could smell his brain. Zombies. He does it back but screams. Huh? What was that?

Anndi said...

Dianne: Yeah... I did that too when I was a kid :)

Sprite's Keeper: I think they know how much we like it and do it to torment us.
Bring a whip too, there may be unruly creatures in there.

Captain Dumbass: It isn't acceptable. I've told her everyone in the bloggosphere thinks it awful! The drooly baby kisses are great.
ZOMBIES!!! LOL

Travis said...

Gonna have to come down on Chicklet's side here, unless there's a guarantee of no lipstick marks from these Mama kisses.

Heheheheee

Turn! Save some of that popcorn and a seat on the observation sofa!

ciara said...

oh, just do it anyways. i would! lol luckily, my girls still love to give me kisses. we will see how long that will last. they are nearing 12 and 10. when my son started 2nd grade i was no longer 'allowed' to give him kisses up in the school yard only outside the fence b4 he entered or in the car. hugs was o.k. then by 3rd grade i was not allowed to do any of those things anywhere near school LOL he's 21 now and he surprised me this summer by saying 'i love you' first to me. :) hehe

ciara said...

p.s. thx for stopping by my blog the other day & commenting on the synth showdown video. i put a funny one up w justin timberlake & beyonce

Bond said...

Grabbing a seat near Travis and Turn and waiting to burst into laughter at any moment.

Anndi said...

Travis: PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT! Mommies give NO guarantees!

Ciara: I keep finding new ways to catch her unawares *evil grin*
She kisses me, I however am not allowed to kis her on any part where there's skin. So what did I do this morning as I left her at school in font of a bunch of other kids? A BIG WET SMOOCH on the forhead! HA!

That synth showdown was way cool!

Bond: Yeah, yeah, yeah! PFFFFFFFFT to you too. No kissies for you!
Wait, what do you mean waiting to laugh? Was I not funny? Harumpf!

Anndi said...

Man, Ciara, I must be sick.. I dropped a bunch of vowels... ack!

ciara said...

ciara said...

Anndi said...

Ciara: Oh. My. God! That was all kinds of funny!

Meribah said...

I didn't like giving kisses when I was a little puppy either. Now, I'm a big puppy...and I still don't! The only thing you're getting from me is glomptackles and earlicks! LOL :P

Dana said...

Bethany's turned into that now (she's 12). :(
