Farewell, Clouds of Kisses
Before I knew it, they were gone. I used to receive kisses in generous amounts from Callum when he first learned the right way to kiss (he used to think that kissing involved making a clucking sound with his tongue). Once mastered, his kisses were usually bestowed in a profuse display of technique: first one cheek, then the other, then lips, nose, and even my forehead, and sometimes a second time around the face. David's favorite part was when Callum would proclaim "I kiss nose" before pulling your face toward him with his hands on your cheeks. Then without my noticing it, he just stopped. /Sob! Now he just gives me one kiss on the lips, although kissing me on the nose sometimes still creeps in.
