My 2.5 year old son has always been a very affectionate. He’s big on asking for cuddles, hugs and kisses every day. Since he’s been that way since birth, I’m very used to it, in turn I often ask him for cuddles, hugs and kisses, which he usually gives willingly(unless he’s busy in some oh-so-important toddler activity). We have never confined this behavior (hugging, kissing, and cuddling)to the house. At playdates I often give him hugs and kisses, or he’ll sit on my lap for a while then happily go off and play with his friends. But I’ve noticed that other moms don’t do this with their little ones. So is this weird? Am I unnaturally affectionate with my kids? Should I not to do this as much in public? Or should I just enjoy it while my kids are still young enough to let me “love on them”? And especially those who know me, what do you think... are we to affectionate? Or am I just over analyzing this?

Their will be a time, when your children won't even want to be in the same room with you, more or less get a hug or kiss from you. Get all the affection while they will let you.
