Do not, I repeat, do not tell social services

We have had a rather splendid day, playing, building bird nests and having cuddles.  Ok we did have meltdown of supreme proportions when twin girl ‘accidently’ elbowed twin boy in the eye and we also had affection of even extreme proportions when twin boy and girl demonstrated their love for each other.  Let me explain….

I heard them giggling down the stairs and I smiled inwardly loving the fact that my children were playing perfectly together.  I was sitting with baby beautiful watching her throw sweet potato and turkey around the floor saving me the problem of feeding the dopey hound later.   I heard them approach the dining room and they were holding hands, an image any twin mother revels in.  I almost popped open with pride.

They came in the room, smiling like angels, happily whispering together. “Mummy,” said twin girl, ‘look at me and Owen, we love each other so much.”  The tears started to prick at my eyes, I love being part of this harmonious family.

“Watch mummy” grinned Twin boy “I am going to kiss and hug my sister”

These thoughts ran through my mind as I watched my two five year olds cuddle. “Clearly I am a marvellous mother, how else can one create such adorable creatures, clearly I am a perfect parent, my children don’t fight they kiss and hug”

Twin boy and girl broke from their hug and looked at each other and then twin boy leaned in for the kill.  With mouths wide open he and twin girl proceeded to attempt what could have only been described in my youth as a full on snog.

Too shocked to speak my mouth hung open like the entrance to a cavernous cave.

“We saw it on the tele.” whooped twin girl.

Christ alive, note to self never sneakingly watch the soaps when you think they are playing quietly, they miss nothing, they have eyes everywhere.

Please don’t tell social services but I made them show he who helped create them (who almost choked on a cocktail of laughter and shock) before trying to re-educate my kids!

    Too funny and oh so normal. I’m sure I tried to snog my brother as child too! Think was after an episode of the oh so child friendly Neighbours.

    Yep very normal. My 4 and 5 year old boy were sat in the bath sucking each others tongues tonight (oh and the horror this morning in bed when Mini asked me to scratch his bum as it made his finger smell)!

    OMG, that is a scene I would like to have seen – not them snogging you realise but the shock on yours and hubbys faces!

    I few years back JJ sat on the sofa, pulled his PJ bottoms down and said tickle me mummy with a perky little sausgae looking up at me! I asked why to be told ‘it feels nice’. We had the it’s Ok to touch your own willy but in private conversation!

    At least it’s just kissing, my daughter (7) & stepson (6) showed me their new bath time game; ss lay on d and they then slid up & down in bath together, then ss stood up to show off his willy!
    Bathtime finished immediately & they no longer bathe together!

    I guess I’d have reacted with shock too, but it is normal for kids to explore this behaviour. And when you think about it, I suppose the affection is the most important, not the actual kissing! Remind them of this when they’re both 18. Cringe worthy, I’m sure!!

    OMG, that’s so funny! You’ve made my day!
    My 3yo asked her Daddy how he got the claw marks on his forehead yesterday (referring to his slight wrinkles). He told her he had a fight with a bear who tried to take his lunch when he was a boy. Only out of the mouths of babes….

    Funny! I won’t tell, I promise

    My baby boy tried to do that to me once. You know those extreme close-ups of Homer Simpson ‘going in for the kill’, mouth wide open, to Marge? It looked very like that. Quite un-nerving. And spitty :O
