My husband has been in Afghanistan for the a year. And it is almost time for him to come home. So the other day he says I hope you haven't been baby"ing Dj (our son). And of course I was like no because I feel like I am just being mom. But he is my baby and I do kiss his cheeks like 15 times a day. My yougest daughter is the same way. She loves to kiss my cheeks. But my husbad says its different with boys. So I told my son , "you are my youngest and so u were my last baby. And sometimes mommy tries to hold on to that. But you are about to be 7 in less than 2 weeks so I need to stop kissing you so much. And I know with Dad gone you guys have been a little attached to me more. So lets try and adjust now so when Dad comes home he doesn't think I baby you." And he says "well when he goes to the bathroom I am gonna run and kiss you." LOL. I know I have to back down on my motherly love so my husband won't have to be the bad guy. Any suggestions from mothers who have been in my shoes? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Well I am a little surprised because I thought I was doing something wrong. I come from a home with all girls but my family was very affectionate, so its in my nature. So I guess I am gonna have to talk to the hubby and let him know the kisses will not stop. He is a good guy but this is our only son. And he was raised in a home where there wasn't as much affection. But after hearing everyones replies I see that my way is not wrong. And we will be discussing this so he uderstands the kisses will not stop. So thanks everyone. I don't think I could stop kissing either one of my babies. :-)

Sorry, but that is just dumb. Kiss him as much and often as you want. He is your baby and it doesn't mean you are "babying" him. It won't make you son any less of a man... it will probably make him a BETTER man. And if you DH says anything about it tell him to shove it!
