I is for...

... inappropriate?...

In the midst of smothering Alexander in kisses tonight Jon asked me when I thought the time would come that it would be inappropriate for him to do so. My instant answer was never. How on earth can it be inappropriate for a father to kiss his son? 

Jon is very tactile with Alexander. He isn't scared to show his love and affection through hugs and kisses. I love watching them together, and Xander clearly loves his Daddy's attention too.  Jon gets in from work and Alexander's little eyes follow him around the room, he so eager to interact with him. 

I understand that as he gets older (much older I hope) he may not want Jon (or me!) to be affectionately tactile so much anymore, and I guess that is part of growing up,  but I want us to always be an emotionally hands on open kind of family, the kinds of family that are comfortable with hugs and kisses. I want Alexander to know we are always here for cuddles and affection if he wants it. I love holding Alexander in my arms, I hold him for so much of every day because I know one day he will outgrow sitting on my lap and wanting Mummy cuddles, and so until that time I intend to soak up every minute of it.

How lovely. My son is 20 now. Sure, we went through a stage of being allowed to merely kiss the top of his head before he darted away, but now we get proper hugs and kisses, which are especially precious now he is away at uni half the year.
