I just want your extra time and your....KISS

The May Queen has decided, as is her way, that we are having a contest. Well, to her everything is a contest or a race, but this is one I am actually happy to participate in. She has decided that we are having a contest to see who can kiss the other one more times before she gets to be an adult. This means that I am in for marathon kissing sessions. Often involving giggles. Tonight she was kissing me to the tune of Jingle Bells (which turned into this very funny little hand patting game which only seems logical in the dark folds of a twin bed post lights out and after being kissed to the tune of Jingle Bells). I kissed her back to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Anytime I give her a kiss she insists on giving me dozens to match it. It's awful, I tell you. By all appearances I am losing this contest.

Although I don't think there IS a loser in such a contest.

And shhh... don't tell her, but I think of all the times I kissed her when she was a baby and couldn't kiss back.... and well, she still has a long way to go to beat ME.

Kiss on! She'll never win. Soon she'll be turning her cheek and getting it on the brain. Ornery, they become. But on second thought, I'm not so sure about yours. She might just be determined enough to win!

I suspect there are going to be two winners in this contest.

Chantal said...

Awe that is so sweet. I just might challenge my boys to that contest tonight!

Furrow said...

No, she'll never catch up with you. But how wonderful that she wants to try.

i - perhaps foolishly - started this very game yesterday. Oscar didn't believe i could give him 20 kisses. i made him count. then he gave them back. then we kissed Josephine 20 times.

then we did it all again today. and it may get old, but like you say...there are no losers in this game. :)

You are right, everybody wins. Too bad the game's over when the teenage years begin.

oh, ok, you got me back about the Julio Iglesias song-- now I'll have Julia Robert's image in a bathtub for the rest of the night and that's just..weird.

Enjoy your loss, it sounds like a marvelous contest :-)

Awe, PM, this is the sweetest thing, ever!

Have been on hiatus, but I sure hope that you're having a good spring. It's so nice to be reading again!

Kyla said...

That is so sweet! I love hearing about little inside games like these.

and then there will be those teenage years, when she'll mostly want to kiss other people :)

jen said...

oh man. hold onto this tight.

alejna said...

That is so sweet.

My girl is getting into a stage where she sometimes denies me smooches. It's rough for me.

Oh, how sweet. :)

My youngest is my extreme kisser. Long may it last!

Kisses are valued commodities around here. Boo will often ask me to do something for him and when I take too long because I am busy (well, actually probably blogging) he says, I know a way to convince you. And starts giving me lots of kisses. How can I resist such die hard persuasion techniques. I am putty in his hands.

May your kissing game be long lived.
