My First Kiss

Some kisses you remember, some you’d rather forget and some you really do forget.

Today, I had a first kiss that I will never, ever forget! It was bath time, a time we both enjoy. She was playing with her Gladware and rubber ducky (I’m too cheap to buy any REAL bath toys!). She pulled herself close to me. I put my forehead to hers, which always gets a smile. She pulled back and then came in and planted one on me!

Granted, it was more like a lip suck with more tongue than a highschooler. That runny nose didn’t faze me, either. You see, this is the first time that Ely has initiated a kiss. She’s given me one when I pester her repeatedly ask, but this time it was all her idea. She may not speak English or Spanish yet, but those eyes said, “I love you, mom” and my heart melted right then and there.
