Reason #81 Why Having a Preschooler Rocks

When Katie gets hurt, she still runs to me,

and cries for me to “kiss it and make it better.” 

And it still works. 

Every single time.

The day will come when my kiss will no longer fix her pain,

when the hurt is just too big.

Please, oh please, let that day in the very distant future.


  1. I will wish for it to be a very very very very long time from now.

    Although it's nice to know you can cure everything now, there will never be a time when your affection doesn't help (even if she makes you feel like it).

  3. you make my ovaries ache

  4. When the kisses stop working a princess band aid will do the trick.

    You know how my family has this elaborate mythology? And some of it is so sickly-sweet, it's amazing our teeth don't rot?

    Very unlike us, but whatever. We like to keep 'em guessing.

    We all say there's magic in the kiss of a person who loves you.

    I highly recommend a mythology of this sort because I still get to kiss my gigantic teenagers' ya yas. We all know it's silly, except that it isn't, really.

    I love that my kiss makes my kids feel better too.

    The thing is, for her whole life, your hug, warmth and presence will make the hurt lessen. Your her MAMA

    I know exactly what you mean, and feel exactly the same way.

    Man, that's why *being* a preschooler rocks.

  10. Grace @ arms wide open

    Love this. The day kisses don’t make it better will be a tough one!

    Ohhh… those are the best. I bet they will always make her feel better even if you have to do it away from all her friends.

  12. Nichole

    Sigh. I do not look forward to that day.

  13. Nichole

    Your turn will come…sooner than you think, I'd bet.

  14. Nichole

    I love that idea…magic in the kiss of a person who loves you.
    I am implementing this mythology right away. :)

    And you're right…it really isn't silly at all, is it?

  15. Nichole

    That's a beautiful way to look at it.
    I love the idea of always being able to at least take the edge off her pain.

  16. Nichole

    We need to work together to figure out a way to keep them small.

  17. Nichole

    Thank you, Katie. We kind of think so. :)

  18. Nichole

    I know, right?!

  19. Nichole

    A tough one indeed. We may need some kind of support group for that day.

  20. Nichole

    Thank you, Sherri.
    I dread the day when she is too cool. At least in public, that is. ;)

  21. Nichole

    Yes, far away from her friends. Sigh. I'm still looking for that pause button!
