Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

My three-year-old is denying me kisses already!


So my gorgeous, nearly three-year-old, has banned me from kissing him!

It used to be just because he hated my ”stinky breath” in the morning.

In fact he often insists I go brush my teeth at 5am in the morning so we can continue our morning snuggle.

I oblige because he’s quite insistent and SOOO snuggly in the morning.

Then he didn’t want kisses because they were ”too sloppy” – eg I didn’t have my mouth firmly closed so I inadvertently allowed the slight moisture on my lips to come in contact with him.

A kiss of this variety caused all sorts of face wiping, yukking and cranky behaviour.

It’s not as long I was slobbering over the poor child like a eager puppy just cute fish kisses.

But then last night at bedtime when I went to smoother him in more kisses he said ”no kisses”.

I asked him why and he said I had ”tuna breath” – no way that is possible because I had tuna for lunch not dinner.

Surely the fishy smell can’t hang around for that long?

Much to his disgust I kissed him all over anyhow – surely he can’t deny me this pleasure at the tender age of three?


(nothing like a poorly centred selfie!)

I feel sorry for whoever marries him, she, or he (you’ve got to keep an open mind these days) will have to be a top-notch kisser to even get a look in!

Maybe he’s just going to be a cuddler (not a word) and again, I feel sorry for whoever he shacks up with.

Because really nothing beats a good old-fashioned pash right?

I mean it’s how most of us fell in love with our significant others in the first place.

If you haven’t got the odd occasion raunchy kiss in your life then, well, I think that’s a bit sad.

Back to No.2 child though, don’t get me wrong I’m not overstepping the mark in regards to our nightly kisses.

But I do wonder why he no longer wants kisses.

Perhaps I have to resort to carrying Listerine in my pocket, or chewing gum?

I have finally figured how to link up with Essentially Jess for I Blog On Tuesdays – so check her out.


Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. Oh no! I’d be devastated if my boys didn’t let me give them kisses! I often get told I have stinky breath but considering how many times I’ve wiped their bums, I tell them to deal with it 😉

  2. So true, surely bum wiping gives us kissing rights for life!! I think I’m going to have to just make him ‘suck it up’ also. Three-years-old is WAY too young to be holding out.

  3. I guess they all go through those phases of having no kisses… My little miss hates it sometimes… and then sometimes out of the blue gives me a big kiss… i guess i should be treasuring those moments x

  4. Aww how devastating! I would miss my kisses and cuddles if Miss 4 started that! I hope it is just a phase.

  5. Oh I would be so sad if my little man denied the kisses, he’s such an affectionate little man I’d be so sad if we lost that. Hope it passes and he’s back to kissing soon

    • The more I think about it, the more I think it has something to do with the frustration stage he’s going through at the moment?! I won’t force the issue and know he’ll come back to his mumma’s kisses soon

  6. Great news, I got to have kisses galore with my gorgeous boy tonight! PHEW

  7. Oh no! My son is 2.5 and so snugly. I don’t want the kisses to end. I figure get them in now as once they are 6 they will be way too cool for mummy kisses 🙂

  8. Oh my boy is the opposite! He smothers me in kisses and I have to tell him to stop!
    Maybe it’s just a phase?

  9. Oh Bless! That’s adorable. Maybe he’s a little OCD and will be a super clean and tidy boy growing up (every mother’s dream right?) My 10 month old daughter isn’t much of a kisser either. Of the 20 times a day I ask her for a kiss I’m lucky to get one 🙂

  10. What a funny little guy. I’m sure it s just a phase and he will be giving you kisses again soon. Although I am with him on the slightly wet kisses. I am not a fan of moist kisses (unless it is a serious pash).

  11. I hope he becomes super tidy, however, I think my Virgo third-born is probably more likely to be like that! He’s 14 months and loves cuddles but hasn’t mastered the kiss, except open mouth!

  12. My boys had that phase but then it disappeared as they are growing up a bit. Maybe they will be back tothat phase again when they start primary one or higher he he…

    • I think he’s just a going through a stubborn stage, he won’t do much I say at the moment, I’m hoping in 2 weeks he’ll change from a terrible two into a terrific three?! Wishful thinking maybe 🙂
