This is a cute picture of what the kids did to combat the sun being in their eyes as we drove in the van. The blue blanket is Shawn and the red one is Faith. The blankets are from daycare and we take them home every weekend to wash so they are clean for Monday morning and the rest of the week. I just happened to have these blankets in the van.
This morning I was taking Shawn to his class after dropping Faith off at hers. I helped him get his coat and boots off then proceeded to say “good-bye” to him. A good-bye consist of two hugs (one of each shoulder), a kiss and an Eskimo kiss (rubbing our noses together).
Shawn gave me the two hugs, as usual, them I proceeded to kiss him and before I got close to his face he said “no Daddy, I don’t like kisses.” I asked him why and he said “I don’t like kisses anymore!” Then he said, “no kisses Daddy. No Eskimo kisses either.” And off he went into his class.
I have to be honest, I was devastated. I thought to myself, “is Shawn too old for kisses?” Then I thought, “how could he be, he is only 3!”
Keep in mind my kids are 3 years old and 4 years old, not teenagers.
Back to our conversation in the van…
Faith told Shawn that when she gets bigger she is going to drive the van. Shawn argues that he is going to drive the van and Faith is going to drive the car. Faith says then say “no, Shawn you drive the car, I’ll drive the van.” Then Shawn concedes to Faith’s wishes and says he will drive the “black car” and Faith is going to drive the “silver van.” Then Faith is a very happy camper!
