A Quirk

Okay, I will admit it: I love slobber. I will qualify it even more by saying that I love baby drool; my baby's drool. It has to be my baby's drool and what I am trying to figure out is at what point does it become spit?

I went through this with Kaelen and am now going through it with Masyn, but I LOVE it when I am cuddling Masyn and she gets all squirmy and tries to suck on my cheek or shoulder. That is when I get showered in slobber and massive amounts of it at that. For me, it is so endearing and damn cute. My cheek could be dripping in it or my shirt looks like I just took a shower in it, and I love it. Yet, I find when Kaelen gets all excited sometimes that he will start to drool and I find that I am saying "Yuck Buddy, you just spit all over Mommy".

Now Kaelen still gives me the odd wet, sloppy kiss and I don't mind that, but at what point does baby drool become spit? When they get a full set of teeth and are eating regular food?

I don't know where the line is, but it's somewhere. Kind of like, when they are little, rolls of fat on the thighs is SOOOO cute! But, at some point, that turns not so cute.
