36,500 Kisses

A unique moment occured in our home this morning.

I kissed my 9 year-old son on his shaggy head as he ate breakfast. We figured that every day, since he’s been born, he’s received, at the very least, 10 kisses per day. At the very least.

Mother’s kisses, father’s kisses, sister’s kisses, grandma’s kisses, grandpa’s kisses, aunt’s kisses, uncle’s kisses and cousin’s kisses were included (canine kisses not included).

By the time he is 10, he will have received approximately 36,500 kisses, given in love and as gestures of affirmation.
