Finally! After 15 months my daughter has been trained to give kisses on demand. It took her a bit of time to get the hang of it, and I had my fair share of head butts while she ironed out her technique, but now it’s been perfected. The other night I actually got six completely unsolicited kisses in a row – they were coming so thick and fast she was like an overactive woodpecker. OK, it was a little bittersweet, as she had a stinking cold, and her streaming nose ended up smeared all over me, but the sentiment was still there. It’s just nice to feel appreciated, even when it comes with a side order of snot.
