To Kiss or Not to Kiss

Inappropriate behavior???

Zoe and Dad

If this changes your opinion of me so be it.

I wanted to take a moment to weigh in on the "Kiss or not Kiss" thing with Dads and daughters. I saw the whole thing with David Beckham and his daugher, and how so many people were quick to criticize him and refer to it as inappropriate. Are you kidding me? David Beckham is a heck of a dad and sharing a moment like that with your daughter is something that every dad would cherish.

One of my most prized memories was the first time that Zoe ran up to me and kissed me on the lips. She was about 2 at the time, and had not seen me all day and it just melted my heart. We have always shared moments like that and even though she is now 11, she will still kiss me every day after school, smack dab on the lips. It doesn't feel strange or weird, it feels like a representation of how our relationship is so strong and loving.

I have no idea how long the kissing on the lips is going to go on. As she gets older, maybe that will seem strange to her, and if it does, I'll be fine with that too.

The bottom line to me is this.

That's my flesh and blood, the love of my life, the one person on this planet I would give my life for. If society thinks that us kissing each other on the lips is wrong, then I will proudly wear that badge.

You know what's great? Today is early release for Seminole County Schools. That means that Dad gets his kiss on the lips a little earlier today.
