You'll feel differently when they are biological...

You know how sick I am of hearing this?!

I told my friend that I do not kiss my stepkids on the lips, this is what she said to me.

No, no I won't feel differently, actually.

My mom/dad didn't kiss me on the mouth. My mom told us that's not appropriate. My stepparents didn't do it either. Neither do grands, aunts, uncles, etc. Nor does DH's family.

Yes biomom and her family do it. Yes, it's pretty common around here. Lots of my friends kiss their little ones/parents/siblings on the mouth.

I don't have any problem with biomom doing it. I don't.

And when it's my biokid, I won't do it either. It has nothing to do with birthing them. I kiss my significant other on the mouth. Nobody else.

So a couple questions.

1. Do you kiss your kids on the mouth? Adopted, bio, step? What about Nieces or Nephews?

2. Has anyone ever told you something would be different for your biokid, and you wanted to be like "Actually, no dumbass, it wouldn't?" What was the sitch?

I kiss my kids on the lips. My parents think it is gross. To each their own. (My kids are 8 and 5) If they ever are uncomfortable or I feel differently we will stop.

I've got two toddlers and I know where their mouths have been, so not even if they promised to send me to the good nursing home.

I do kiss my biological DS on the lips. He's 4. Always have. Now my two step sons, no. They were 12 and 15when me and DH got together, now 14 and 17 and it would just be weird, as I'm only 5 years older than my oldest stepson.

I have a spit/ saliva phobia sooooo not really. I do sometimes at bedtime and have to wipe my mouth immediately afterwards.

Yes I kiss my kids on the lips, but I don't kiss my nieces/nephews or anyone else on the lips (except my dh of course).  I don't have stepkids, so I've never had anyone tell me that something will feel different when it's my bio kids.

If your skids were younger, would you? I mean, do you think so?

I know I wouldn't with my biokid. But, just wondering if you think you would with a littler step?

I kiss all over them, and them me, but not on the lips. If we do accidentally kiss lips, I wipe it off involuntarily. Friend saw this, it's actually how the combo came up.

I don't kiss anybody on the mouth except for my SO. I've never has someone say something like that to me though.
