Welcome to Week 51 of Friendly Debates With The Danielles!
Each Sunday Danielle from “We Don’t Have It All Together, But Together We Have It All” and I will host this awesome meme and we would love for you to link up and join us. There will be a question each week that will require you to think about how you feel about a certain topic and to decide where you stand regarding that topic, then of course share those thoughts!
We do have a few rules… or rather guidelines… that we would appreciate being followed:
1.) Please follow the hosts via FaceBook: Danielle B. & Danielle H.
2.) If you link up please leave a comment so we can visit you.
3.) This is a meme, so you MUST answer the question in a blog post.
4.) Link directly to the blog post in which you answer the question.
5.) Grab the button and place either in your post or on your blog.
(You can find the html code in my right side bar).
6.) At the end of your post leave a suggestion for the following weeks topic.
If we choose your suggestion you will be mentioned and linked to in the following weeks post.
AND THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE
Please respect each others opinions. This means no bashing of other bloggers in comments on their posts. Kind words and genuine questions are encouraged. If you strongly disagree with someone else the place to address your view point is in a post on your own blog. If we find that you have blatantly disregarded this you will be removed from the linky.
Kissing Your Children on the Lips: Yay or Nay? What do YOU say?
I say yay up to a certain age…. what that age is I don’t know yet.
Alleigh is four years old, Kaelyn is two years old, and Willow is 7 weeks old. They all get smothered in hugs and kisses every single day by both Dustin and me.
I want my kids to know they are loved, to feel they are loved, to see they are loved. And the best way to do that is to shower them with all the love I can. I figure there will come a day that the lip kisses just naturally stop on their own and when it does I will be perfectly fine with that. But for now I will kiss them as much as I can. In fact a few weeks ago I had a rather nasty cold and so I wasn’t giving kisses for a few days…. as I was tucking Alleigh in one of those nights she said to me “Mama I can’t wait til you feel better so I can give you a real kiss again.” That melted my heart. But when the lip kisses stop I will continue to give them kisses on the cheek and forehead for as long as they let me and hugs will never ever stop. They’ll always be my babies.
Do you give your kiddos kisses on the lips? Why or why not? Leave a comment or link up and let me know.
