I can't believe I'm even writing about this. My son is 4 1/2. Why on earth would I need to be breaching this subject with him?
I don't know why, but we are. In the last 2 days, I've had 2 moms come to me and tell me that my son was kissing their daughters.
I don't even know what to say.
My boy doesn't go around kissing people (or does he!?) He is pretty affectionate at home. But it always seems to be with Mommy and Daddy not his sister or brother.
Seems it always starts with some sort of pretend play. House mostly. He's always the Daddy and the girl is either the Mommy or the baby. It's hard to determine why kissing enters the picture. The real story is somewhere between his story and the little girl's story. I wish there was a way to know exactly.
Then there's the task of explaining why kissing isn't appropriate. Yeah, that's really easy. As he's crying uncontrollably because he thinks he's in trouble. He doesn't want to talk about it! He says he doesn't want to get in trouble! He says that the kissing didn't start with him but with "her". (I wouldn't blame the girls at all...he IS darn cute!)
This is just the beginning of things to come. I'm not looking forward to Jr. High.
Girls, my boy is off limits. He's my sweetie. He's saving his kisses for his Mommy.
Son, girls are off limits. The girls are saving their kisses for their Daddies.
Let's keep our lips to ourselves...can we please?
