Four Responses

Joy has developed four different positive responses for one particular request.

  • She tucks her chin down and presents the top of her head.

  • She leans in and presents one side of her face.

  • She doesn't incline her head at all, but makes a puckery motion and sound with her mouth.

  • Or - rare but lovely - she leans in and turns up her mouth with a puckery smile.

Kiss for mommy? Kiss for daddy? Kiss your big sister?

We don't know why she chooses any given response at any given time. But it's almost always one of these, especially at bedtime when it's part of the routine. Melts us into our shoetops. What a sweetheart.

Hello, I'm new here but very pleased to have dropped by. The kiss responses are just gorgeous. My son Thomas is 5 (will be 6 in April) and is also a Monkey... his latest monkey toy has been named Chooka. Thomas also presents his face/top of head for a kiss!
