As we were sitting on the couch earlier, Emma Shea had this smile on her face. She looks at me and says, "Today on the bus I kissed Casey." Of course the smile quickly left her face when she looked at my expression and I proceeded to tell her she is not allowed to kiss boys. We discussed--or rather I spoke, she listened and hid her face crying--that kisses are saved for mommies and daddies. I am dreading the day Michaela has a boy call and she is 12. I certainly was unprepared to have this "conversation" with my 5 year old !
She comforted me by assuring me, "It was JUST ON THE CHEEK."
