It was naptime, and my 3 year old was stalling.
“Mama, I gotta kiss baby night-night. Night-night baby AB baby AB*… kiss on forehead… kiss on cheek… kiss on other cheek” .
He glances at mama to make sure he’s not in trouble.
“Oh, and kiss on hand… kiss on other hand… kiss on knee… kiss on other knee”.
Another quick glance, and it starts over. “Night-night baby AB baby Ab…kiss on forehead…”
And Mama finally interupts… “Ok, enough kissing, time for nap, buddy!” … beaming on the inside at the sweetness of her boys.
*And no, it’s not a typo – S really does call him “Baby AB Baby AB” Sometimes it’s “Baby AB AB Baby AB Baby”
