And I didn't know this was coming. Like, it's kind of like you expect phases. You expect your kid to pick their nose for a couple of years. You expect them not to wipe their buck for a couple of years. You expect them to be obsessed with slime for a couple of years. But now it's like I had to I had to actually tell him that he can't kiss me, like on TV. And the other day no one was home.
And it was just he and I and I was actually, like, uncomfortable the way that he was looking at me. And it's the saddest thing because, I mean, I am like such a mom. Yeah. I can't imagine why he'd be looking at you like, oh, and it's a part of me is like really proud of him and like, oh always love your mother that much.
And the other part of me is like auto or auto. I mean there's no tongue. This is not a tongue. No, no.
But it is like a it's like a TV kiss. I mean I think it is a and like grabs my face and it's. Oh yeah. I mean have you guys been.
I well so I know it's a phase because I, I remember doing that to my dad, the guy I totally remember, I remember it so clearly, you know, same thing like I had watched something on TV.
You get to an age where you're starting to absorb what you're seeing and you see people kiss or you see your parents kiss. And I was in my room and I was standing like I was on my bed and maybe my dad was saying good night to me. I don't know. But I stood up on my bed, so I was like, same height as how old were you?
Oh, gosh, I don't know. Let's say let's say, you know about Tracy, let's say eight and under, just to be safe. I mean, had to have been young and they did this to give me a hug.
And I like leaned in and I tilted my mouth and did the thing where you sort of move your lips, someone else lips.
And he has never done this in his life. He literally just took his hand on my chest and just went and just pushed me. Oh, yeah. I mean, he was horrified.
Well, what's amazing is that that's your like you have that memory because it obviously was like your first sense that it wasn't OK. Right. Right.
And so how how can we gently without throwing our kids like I don't blame him for a second. I mean, but how do you when am I. I'm just going to break his heart.
I don't think so. I mean, I didn't you're not I am not him. Not as a friend. But I will be always I will love him more than any. I think he'll get it. I mean, it's just a he's just he's just it's just a phase. He'll get it. You just so you can't kiss mom like that. Yeah, it's pretty wild. It's new and it's kind of ongoing and and it's so much so literally.
My husband the other day when he did it in front of him, my husband goes, get a room.
Oh my God. I was like, oh yeah. Oh yeah. I don't know. I don't know how you how you shut that one down, but you might love the snuggle snuggle.
Oh sure. But then he grabs my face with his hands. And would you also love I mean admit it just everybody feels that way about their boys. I'm just amazing. I always say like I want my daughter to grow up and be president of the United States and I want my son to grow up and snuggle with me when he's fifty. And that's probably what's wrong with the world right now. That just sums it all up. It really does.
