It can get pretty overwhelming like how he’ll want to kiss me repeatedly in school just to get me to stay longer with him. I’m also concerned about him licking up my sunscreen or my makeup! But other than that, I’m of course happy that my son is so generous with his affections.
He is however, very selective with his compliments and he appears to know the difference between cute and pretty. Like when I’m dressed up with makeup, he’ll say mummy is pretty but on a daily basis, he’ll only say I’m cute no matter how much I persist. He can even tell me that I’m not cute when I scold him!
And when asked what cute is, his reply is “cute is everybody likes.” But when asked if daddy is cute, his answer is always an assertive NO + “daddy is fat.” Kisses for daddy are also to be begged for.
