My dh says I over do it that I am spoiling the kids and making them to be weak human beings.
I just can't help myself I can be sitting and I see one of my kids (boy & girl) and I ask them to come to me and they do then I grab them and start kissing and hugging and tickling them ooohhh I love doing that to them and they love it too...I guess cause my mom would do this to us and now I know what she felt when she would do this. I even talk to them and tell them will you let mommy do this when you guys grow up to be teenagers and they both say yes but we know different :( So I am taking advantage of it. I just love the feeling we both get :) I just can't get enough of them.

There is NOTHING wrong with hugging & kissing your kids often!!! It has actually been shown to improve their self esteem, etc if I remember what I have read correctly!! Not hugging, etc has shown to have a negative effect!! [Just ask my hubby ,who's family never hugged, how negative that is on a kid - his therapist said he could write a novel on how his parents lack of affection has negatively impacted him]
Keep hugging kissing your kids... you will help them in the ling run!!! ;o)

My kids loved to be tickled!! But, I stop when they say stop, so they don't feel out of control... then they come running back for more saying "tickleme again", laughing their heads off!!! It's a great way to bond with them!!! We used to do that with my Grampa too - some of my fondest memories were the "tickle" fights with him. They always ended in hugs too - so nice to be hugged by the ones who love you!! ;o)
