The babysitter brought her five-year-old son over on Thursday. After putting the babies down, she overheard the following conversation between Fluffy and J.
Fluffy: Let’s play wedding.
Fluffy: Now we have to have our wedding dance.
J: Okay. (They dance.)
Fluffy: Now we have to have our wedding kiss.
J: No way.
Fluffy: It’s okay. We’re married.
J: Okay, but don’t tell anybody. Don’t ever tell my mom or anybody.
Fluffy: I won’t. (They kiss on the lips!)
Fluffy: Now we’re married!
Then later that night when it was time for Fluffy to go to bed:
Fluffy: Okay, husband, I need another kiss goodnight.
J: Okay. (He kisses her again.)
I asked her about this the next day, and she totally broke her promise to J by spilling the beans.
Fluffy: We kissed for weeeeal. On the lips! That showed his love for me.
I then launched into a lecture on NOT kissing boys. This was a tough one because there were a lot of “Why’s” I did not care to answer in detail. I said kissing boys could get you into big trouble.
Fluffy: Like we could fall in love and start decorating things with stuff that is not supposed to be for a wedding?
Erm, if by “decorating things” you mean….
I ended up just telling her you can’t date anyone or kiss any boys until you’re 16. Even Disney seems to follow this rule at least. Got to teach her not to model her favorite cartoons for many, many years to come.
Ugh. This child is getting lip action way before I did. Maybe Kent and I kiss her on the lips too much? Any experience with this or suggestions would be most welcome.
