A Guide to Hugs and Kisses

FACT: There are many different kinds of hugs and kisses.

Here at Inner Child Fun, we take our hugs and kisses very seriously. Consider this post to be your go-to guide for hugs and kisses!

There are hugs that are so strong, they almost knock you over.

There are Papock hugs that require a running start.

Friendly monster hugs are always nice.

And virtual hugs are perfect for when you can’t be with the ones you love.

Feeling hungry? Try the “hey, can I have a bite of your sandwich?” hug.

There are sneaky silly kisses.

And there are First Day of School hugs.

There are lovely crayon hugs.

And double whammy kisses!!

There are holiday hugs. Added bonus — they are free this time of year.

And my personal favorite…. the “Mommy’s finally back from her long trip” hug!!!

FACT: Kids need at least 10 hugs and kisses everyday to grow up big and strong.

Wishing you and your family a lovely weekend FULL of lots of hugs and kisses!

    Have you ever read “The Hug Book?” It’s super cute book with all types of hugs. Of course after reading it my boys decided to invent their own hugs. An endless supply of hugs names.

    The most feared and dreaded of them is the “jump hug,” where 7 year old boys will jump at you with a sudden cry of “JUMP HUG” as their 60 pounds of mass hurtles down at you from wherever they jumped.
