Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Alex Kisses


Brace yourself for a super sappy post... ( I have to blog about it though so that it will be forever embedded in my brain...)


Today was like any other day in which I drop Alex off at school. I sat him at his place to eat breakfast next to his friend (J) & kissed him goodbye. As I was walking out of the classroom, his teacher stopped me to tell me about something Alex did yesterday. While we were talking, Alex suddenly started crying....very hard!


I went to him and asked him what was wrong. At first, I was unable to make out what he was saying but finally he calmed down a bit. He said, "J said that your kisses were no good!"


I said, "Do what?"


Alex said, "J said you don't have good kisses but you do!"


After I chuckled a bit, I said, "Baby, it's ok. J has never had my kisses before so he doesn't know if they are good or not. He gets his kisses from his mommy and daddy. My kissses are special and just for you. It's ok if my kisses are not good to him because you know they are good for you. Ok, Baby?"


Alex finally relents and says ok. I kissed him goodbye again and turned to leave.


As I did, this is what I heard, "See! I told Ya! Her kisses ARE good!!!!"


That baby just melts my heart! I could gobble him up with a spoon! It amazes me at how protective and defensive of me he is. He sure does love his momma! But nothing compared to how much I love and adore him!


I've said it before and will say it as long as I draw breath, Thank you Lord for choosing me to be Alex's mommy!!
