It's All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Kissed

I have two babies tonight. Jeffrey, Mads and I picked up Mason at around 4:30 this afternoon. Besides Madelynn's obsession with teasing Mason (she loves to 'pretend' to hand him something, and then yank it away as soon as Mason reaches out his little arm. I don't know where she learned that), we didn't have any issues until bath time hit. Madelynn is very affectionate. She's a hugger, and most recently, a kisser. Who doesn't enjoy a big, open-mouthed kiss from a toddler? Well...

Bath started out on the right foot, with lots of sharing and chummy head patting:

Now, Mason sports a kissy face quite often, so I can understand how Mads would get the wrong impression. Hell, I wanted to kiss the kid. How could you possibly resist that smoochy face?

So Mads kissed him. A lot. Which led to this:

Mads, sensing the distress that Mason was most obviously experiencing, tried to console him:

Which led to this:

Finally, I had to separate them. I pulled Mads to the other side of the tub and tried to ever so gently explain to her that Mason just didn't want to be kissed anymore. It got me this:

She can't be discouraged though:

Poor Mason.

Mads loves Mason, and I'm pretty sure Mason has a soft spot for her, too. He just prefers her in smaller doses and at least 400 yards away.

While shopping today, I bought that new Johnson's Baby Bubble Bath & Wash, and I just couldn't wait to try it out. So if you were wondering why that tubby is so bubbly, now you know! It's fabulous.

I'm so sorry for Mads. That's the funniest/saddest bath story, ever. I have a Mad, too. She's two, and she loves her brother who is only 9 months. Mostly, he is fine with it, but my Mad is broken hearted when he reacts like Mason. Although, I can't blame either boy -- these beautiful little girls can be a little overwhelming!

Beautiful site, beautiful pictures, beautiful baby. Congrats on all three.
