Yes, I Kiss My Kids on the Lips... What's the Big Deal? πŸ’‹ ...


So remember last week when the whole world was pissed that Victoria Beckham posted a photo of herself smooching her daughter, Harper, on the lips?

I have a confession to make: I, too, kiss my kids.

On the lips.

And you know what?

Just like Victoria's kids, my kids are JUST FINE.2

You know what else?

I do LOTS of things that would make the collective internet scowl, and I DGAF at all.

1. I do Kiss My Kids πŸ˜—

Let me be clear: kissing my kids is just another way to show them affection, and we're all fine with it.

No one's in therapy, no one's doomed to a life of hardship...and in fact, my kids are both happy, they're well-adjusted, they're secure, and they feel loved.

2. They Get Screen Time, Too πŸ“±

I'm the worst mom ever, because I let my 12-year-old play Minecraft and watch Sailor Moon in the same day!2

The thing is, she's an all-A student with an active social life, and just like me, sometimes she likes to relax after a long day of being awesome with a little screen time.

3. Junk Food πŸ”

I freely admit that I do not cook an organic, gluten-free, vegetarian meal every night of the week.

Sometimes I do.

But most nights, we eat regular-people food, and about once a week, we eat pizza or even - gasp!2

- fast food.

4. They've Seen My Boobs 😲

Both of my kids are girls, and at some point or another, they've both seen my boobs.

My older daughter has seen me breast-feed my younger daughter, and there have been a few times I've had to change in front of my youngest.

It's no biggie, truly.

I'm not jiggling them around, making a big deal about it.2

They're just boobs.
