Jet’s newest thing is to randomly run to me yelling, “I’ll save you, Mommy!!” (from what, I’ve yet to discover, but it doesn’t really matter to me). He clambers up into my lap and says, “I’m saving you, Mommy!”
I managed to convince him at one point that, in order to save me properly, he had to wrap both his arms around my neck and hug me. So he did this for awhile.
Then, I convinced him that I really needed a kiss to feel saved. He complies with that now, too. 🙂
It’s cheap, but it’s still toddler hugs and kisses. From Jet. Which I’ll take any way I can get.
