hugs & kisses

a conversation with daddy.

d: erika, why are you so reluctant to kiss yeh yeh and ma mah these days?
e: what is reluctant?
d: it means don't really like la. why you act like this(make body like a limp sotong) when you give them a hug.
e: i'm tiiiiiiired ma (paused thinking very hard) why don't you kiss them? they are your daddy and mommy. we are family
d: ehh..i am an adult
e: adult also can kiss what...

erika got a point! what happened to us? when did we grow out of kissing and hugging our parents. well, we do it on special occasions but is that enough? i think we tend to substitute our embrace with our children's.
