Should I Be Worried?

DeLaynie loves kisses. It began, oddly enough, with baby Jesus. If you recall from this post, DeLaynie loved nativity scenes this Christmas. Her favorite part was kissing baby Jesus, and then play acting that the shepherds, Mary, Joseph, the wise men, and even the goats kissed Him too. I guess that it could be metaphorical of how true love for other people begins with love for Christ. Yeah, we'll go with that.

Anyway, she got a doll for Christmas that she has fallen head-over-heels in love with. The first thing she did was give it a big kiss. Now she's in a kissing frenzy. The good news is that she doesn't kiss just anyone. She kisses all babies, human or plastic. She kisses teddy bears. She asks Edwin and me for kisses all the time. I'm trying to teach her to blow a kiss, but right now it's just kissing the air.

It can't possibly be good for her to go around kissing everything in the middle of cold season. She does have an excellent immune system, but this has to be a bit much. I'm just hoping that this little phase passes before her teen years. Otherwise, I may be forced to homeschool.

At least she's not kissing everyone. . . :)
Ali told me the other day that she held hands with Titus (a boy in her SS class) in this dreamy voice. . . yikes!!!
