Turns out he is smooching one gal in particular. She is new. He kisses her a few times throughout the day: when he first sees her, before lunch, after lunch, and before nap time. He did not kiss her goodbye when we left. Here's his MO: He kisses Naomi and his friend Will and then says "You are my friend". He kisses them both on the lips ("Very European", says Kevin) but no tonguage, thankfully. I spoke to Naomi's mom & she is thinking the same way I do...cool so long as neither is ill and there is no disrupting class time. I am not so sure Will's mom would be in the same mind frame. I don't know her or his dad. Frankly, I do not care that Alex kisses him. Glad that he is happy to share his love for his friends without the stigma that would surely be seen by some older kids. I asked him last night as I put him to bed about the kissing. He said "I kiss you, Daddy, Trevor, and my friends. We are supposed to kiss our friends."
I hope Will's folks do not freak out about it. I am proud that my son is so loving and affectionate toward his friends. How many times have you forgotten to love on your friends and then you are miles & miles away and unable to do so in person? Get to it!
