Watching my niece interact with this butterfly reminded me of when I was her age: young, playful, and curious. In particular, I remember chasing butterflies in the rose garden with my best friend, Cindy. I also remember giggling as we played around with eskimo and butterfly kisses.
Being EXTREMELY ticklish, the fluttering of her eyelashes on my cheek (butterfly kiss) ALWAYS made me giggle. Of course that made Cindy want to do it over and over again.
As for rubbing noses for an eskimo kiss, we just thought that was kind of silly, although we did wonder if traditional kisses would indeed lead to frozen lip lock.
Isn’t childhood innocence great? Go ahead; Be child like. Exchange butterfly kisses with someone and see if they giggle too.
