A house of love...

The other day, I was watching the my favorite soap opera Y&R (The Young & The Restless) while Francesca was playing in the other room. I try never to watch those afternoon soaps while Francesca is around, but today I tuned in. Normally around the time Y&R is on, Francesca is already winding down for "quiet time" but today was a different story. All of a sudden, she came running into our living room and stopped dead in her tracks. When I turned around, I noticed her starring at the television to see what was on...this is what I saw!

(OK so it isn't the exact scene that we both saw and the photo displayed above is not as passionate as what we witnessed on the TV but you get the picture...)

After a few seconds, I can see this smile come across my daughter's face as I sit there waiting to explain to her what was happening she said, "Oh just like my mommy and daddy!" I almost feel off the couch and didn't have anything to say...when I told my mom the story, she said she thinks it is a great thing that Keith and I kiss in front of her because she said there are a lot of other children who see their parents "battle"...I can totally see my mom's point. When I first heard my daughter's comment regarding the soap opera scene that was playing before us, I was a little embarrassed, but after hearing what my mom had to say, I would much rather my daughter experience love than anger (but I am going to be DVRing Y&R and watch it when she is not around).
Today is the BIG day that Lisa at "Half Gaelic, Half Garlic" and I meet for our lunch date...I just can't wait!!!!

This is so funny!! My niece called it the "TV Kiss".....I agree....seeing the "Love" instead of anger is a good thing!

It floors me some of the stuff that is put on TV...things have certainly changed over the years....that little DVR comes in handy, doesn't it?

See you soon!

I had to visit you after reading your comment on Krista's blog. I am so hooked on Y & R - I don't watch any of the others just that one. Just wanted to hello, I'll visit again. Oh yes, I agree with your mom.

Too adorable!! Our kids now roll their eyes when they see us kiss. Won't be long before they are making accompanying gagging sounds, I am sure!
