I bet she meant everyone she is friendly with in her life, but just didn't use the right words to articulate that....
For us it would be about the same. We definately have never thought about other people thinking it would be weird to smooch our sweet little one on the lips from time to time, I kiss her cheeks, her belly, her little hands and feet....
And all of my friends are fine with it and I have seen them all do it, too....
But I could see other people having rules about such things, people have rules and hang-ups about all kinds of stuff.

We kiss on the lips.

I never thought I would, either, since I come from a family who didn't at all. I grew up thinking it was "weird" to see other kiss their parents on the lips, too. Funny how much we change when we have kids of our own.

I grew up kissing my parents on the lips but I've moved to more of a "OH is the only one" mindset. That said, if the girls go to kiss me on the lips, I don't freak. They're usually cheek-kissers anyway.

SAME!

Before my daughter started aiming for the lips I thought, oh no WAY. But now I think hey, at least she still wants kisses. One of these days she's going to, "Oh MOOOOoooOOOOM" me and break my heart!

I also chew my babies' food and will feed them from my mouth. I've seen monkeys do it and frankly it never occurred to me not to do either.
I do this too, it's odd how much I use my mouth in mothering if I think about it, but it never occurs to me that it's weird!

I think, in my situation at least, it was probably the adults that initiated the stop.
I called dh to tell him about the thread and ask his opinion about lip kisses with your children, and his response was, "yeah, I remember girls in grad school with me saying that they would never breastfeed because it was too sexual." So yeah, I do think just as society has conditioned many of us to think of breasts as purely sexual, society has also conditioned some of us to think of lips as purely sexual. Insane!!!
This was exactly my reaction! I had no idea others thought lip kissing was weird or taboo. Like your DH, the similarity between "lip kisses for lovers" and "boobs are for men" popped immediately into my head.

DH kisses the girls on the lips, as do I, although the girls reserve the right to decline depending on the state of DH's beard and mustache LOL!

Sorry, I'm bumping this thread...

Yesterday at a cafe, a woman commented of how inappropriate it was for DD to be kissing her dad on the lips
At first I thought she was joking, nope she was serious. I asked why and she said "Because a grown man shouldn't be kissing a little girl on the lips even if he's the father"
WHAAAAAAT?????????

Sorry, needed to vent.
