The Ordinary Moments – Mummy Kisses

Little O is at the age where he likes to run around, play, explore. With that comes the inevitable trip, or bang. In the seconds immediately after a bump I can see O trying to process what’s just happened and deciding whether it’s bad enough to cry or if it’s just a sulking moment. Either way it requires some mummy attention.

One of the great things about 2 year olds is that they believe mummy kisses are magic. They have the ability to make everything better. So when my son has hurt himself he heads over “mummy kiss me” and I kiss where it hurts and he’s a happy bunny once more. My little boy also believe that his kisses are magic too. On the odd occasion where we may have bumped heads he gives me toddler kisses to make the “pain” go away. He has been known to deliberately give me a little bump on the head, just so he can kiss it better.

I love the innocence of toddlers and how such simple things can take the hurt away. I know there will come a day when mummy kisses won’t be able to fix everything, and I’m dreading it already. However, mummy kisses will always be available for when my little man wants them (and when he doesn’t) and hopefully they’ll let him know I’m here for him whenever he needs me and I’ll always try to make things better.

      Haha, they certainly too, along with nana and daddy kisses! (But mummy kisses work the best)

    Their innocent beliefs are lovely. I love it when H demands kisses after a fall or when he shuts his eyes and thinks no one can see him, if he can’t see them 🙂

      Yep, my little man does that covers his face with his hands and believes we can’t see him. Probably doesn’t help that we all play along!

    Do you know what its not even false is it – they actually do take the pain away, even if its a psychological thing. Having your mummy there where you hurt yourself always makes you feel better and sometimes i still feel like that now! x

      Yep, me too. And as a girl daddy cuddles are pretty good at making you feel better too x

    Aww, this is so cute. I’m trying to teach Toby to give us kisses but at the moment it usually just ends up with him trying to eat some part of my face!

      Aww, they’re so cute when they come along. My little man can’t say kiss properly, it sounds like piss! So cute though when he comes up and says “mummy piss me” Good job I know what he means x

    Aw I love this post. I adore the innocence of my girls and it makes me feel quite sad to think that one day mummy’s kisses and cuddle’s won’t make it better. We definitely need to relish these ordinary moments while we can! x

      It makes me sad too. I love that at this age I can scoop him up, give him big kisses and cuddles and make everything better. Thanks for hosting, I love this linky for making me focus on the normal things I’d otherwise forget as time goes on!

    Ahhh this has just covered me in goosebumps such a lovely post. I love how mummy kisses make everything better. I know that a hug from my mum and dad still makes things better for me so I hope that this will also be the case for Arthur!

      Thank you for such a lovely comment. I love the trust O has that mummy will make everything better. x

    How I wish that those kisses work every time they get hurt too! Now I can hope that they won’t grow up so fast and keep their innocence for a bit longer! x

    Potato is just getting to the stage where he asks for a kiss to make something better. I’m really lucky because he’s always been a very affectionate little boy, with plenty of kisses and cuddles. Mummy kisses may be magic, but toddler kisses and cuddles can heal most things for a mummy too 🙂
