HQ: Mama, can you promise me something?
Me: Yes, what is it?
HQ: If you are in my school, or anywhere near my school, please please please remember not to hug me or kiss me ok?
Me: Why? *amused*
HQ: Because if my friends see you hugging or kissing me, they will laugh at me. They will die of laughing! So pleeeeeeease promise not to do that ok?
I'm tickled by his request, but at the same time hoping that this request will not come at all :-). I know this is quite common among kids his age; do you just agree to your kid's request, or feign forgetfulness to steal a peck or two? :-)
