Kissing Match


HT and I have this thing we do with the kids. It’s a bit of a kissing match. We each take one side of a kid’s head, plant one on them, and then see who can kiss them the longest.

It looks like this…a kid in between us, and we’re kissing the kid, say, around the area of the child’s temple, and then we just hold it. 


I tend to win. I attribute it to chorus. Lots of breath control.

Once in a great while, HT will beat me. He’ll kiss the kid longest. I hate when that happens. I feel like I’ve let the kid down.

Sometimes, the kid who isn’t being kissed will join in from behind, so the kid being kissed will have a parent on each temple, and a sibling in the occipital region.

It must feel quite strange, the vibration.

Three family voices, Mmmmmmming into your head.

Oh come on. Like you’ve never done it.

If you haven’t tried it, you should.

  7. I’ll be doing that tomorrow when the boys get back! (Although it won’t work quite as well, since it will be one-sided!) Many blessings to you and yours for 2010! And lots of kisses! xxxxx

    I can’t get past the fact that you use words like occipital.

  9. We do something similar – my son named it “Family Hotdog” many years ago, DH and I are the bun. lol

    Enjoying your blog immensely. Have been toying with the notion of homeschooling for quite some time and its nice to be able to read part of your journey.
