My son is ferocious, I mean look at him.
Lately, he has developed an stunning allergy to kisses. He arches his back and howls when I sneak a kiss. He swats his puffy hand at the imprint and yelps, "NO KEESE, NO KEESE!!" And I don't care, I can't help but kisses and noogle his cheeks. I mean, come on!
So, we have started a system that I began when my daughter became allergic to the kiss. We touch fingers, ET style, and do finger kiss.
And when he asks for something (juice, sammich, pbs kids) I say, KISS first! and he kisses, without the howl. He leans in, all ferocious and makes a large smooching sound.
Ya see, it's all about the art of supplementation.
