Mommy Still Needs her Kisses

As I buckled him into his booster seat, his sweet face beckoned me to kiss it. Unable to resist, I placed a gentle kiss on one soft little cheek. He frowned a tiny bit, but I caught a glint of smile in his eyes. Knowing I need to take advantage of these moments when I get them, I cupped his face in my hands, looked deep into his eyes, and said "I love you so much, Bear."

"Yay!" he responded, which is our "thing." "Yay!" I answered back, burying my face in his soft cheek again and smothering him with kisses.

"Oh, Bear," I said. "Someday you're going to be big and you're not going to want me to give you kisses."

"Yes I will, Mommy!" he protested. "At least I think I will. I don't know. Maybe."

Oh, my baby Bear...please don't grow up too soon. Mommy still needs her kisses.


  1. "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be."


  2. Sigh...I hope he never tires of kisses from his mom.

    1. I hope he doesn't either, but I know the day will come. :-(
