Those of you who know my sweet little girl know how passionate she is. She's so full of love and affection.
Back in the fall, at school, she would feel compelled to hop out of line each time she passed her brother in the hall. (She's a 1st grader; he's a 3rd grader.) She wanted to hug him and tell him how much she loves him. After all, it had been three hours since they ate breakfast together...what if he needed a reminder of her love?
Well, needless to say, he was not in favor of these spontaneous bursts of affection at school.
Pumpkin, of course, felt a little rejected by his response.
We had some conversations at home and reassured Pumpkin that she could hug & kiss her Mommy and Daddy ANY time she wants to--completely spontaneously. That helped a bit.

The other day, I found this written exchange between the two of them.
It cracks me up.
Pumpkin: I Love You! Do you?
Superboy: Do not do thiz agin, but yes and yes allways
