Above is Claire and Mikey, just one of the many adorable photos submitted on the Mommy Shorts Facebook Fanpage after I posted a request for pictures of kids kissing. The request was inspired both by Valentine's Day and the very timely photo of Mazzy's first kiss last weekend.
Now, if you are a regular of my blog, you know that whenever I do a fan photo album, there will be captions. This time is no exception. HOWEVER. I realized midway through the captioning process that these photos were a little trickier to caption than most.
For instance, I made a very smart decision NOT TO CAPTION any of the brother/sister pics and instead post them in a separate VERY INNOCENT slideshow called "Sibling Love" on Babble. If you posted a picture of two siblings kissing, you can probably find them there.
As for the rest of you, I tried to keep it as PG as possible. Some of the photos made it tough. If anyone has an issue with a caption, just email me and I will take it down.

My love-themed week is officially complete.
Next week, I'm taking Mazzy to Utah so wish me luck on the plane. I've got some great stuff in store— the return of Dr. B, an excellent guest post and the winner of the Incredibly Fabulous Vacation Giveaway will be announced. If you haven't entered yet, you can do so here.
Speaking of winners, congratulations to Amanda from "New Mom on the Blog" who won the Worst Wedding Story Comment Competition with "Period Surprise". Well-deserved. You are the lucky winner of a onesie from Mimosa.
Although, there was a comment on the Mommy Shorts Fanpage that had it been entered sooner, may have taken top honors.
"My mom freaked out at her place in our processional. Said "don't fucking touch me" when I went to hug her at our rehearsal dinner. Both my parents didn't show for the wedding. My brother-in-law channelled his dead father in giving us his/their blessing, then sang Mustang Sally with the band but adlibbed racist lyrics. How do I get in on this and what did I win?"
Sorry, Craig, you are too late. But might I interest you in some Mossy Balls as a consolation prize?
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
