I Accidentally Kissed….

In the delicate dance of parenting, my one-year-old son’s trip to the doctor’s office took an unexpected turn. The mission was simple: check for an ear infection. Yet, as the doctor delved into the examination, my son’s distress escalated.

Cradling him on my lap, I became a soothing symphony of whispers and calming gestures. In a moment of maternal instinct, I leaned in to kiss my son’s head, aiming to reassure him. Little did I know, the doctor’s hand had tactfully found its place there, providing support during the examination.

My lips met not the softness of my son’s hair but the firmness of the doctor’s hand. A subtle gasp hung in the air as I pulled away, a silent acknowledgment of the unexpected encounter. In that awkward moment, neither of us uttered a word, choosing instead to weave an unspoken agreement that this peculiar incident would be discreetly swept under the rug of professional decorum.

As the examination continued, the air remained lighthearted, and we collectively embraced the unscripted comedy of a well-intentioned kiss gone astray. Parenthood, after all, has its share of unpredictable, laughable moments – even in the most unlikely places, like a routine doctor’s visit.
