...and my family likes it, as per this exchange 10 minutes ago with my 7yo son:
My son just brought some things upstairs that Mom had asked him to. As he left, I said, "Thanks. You're a good boy."
To which, he replied, "That deserves a hug," as he returned to my chair for the hug. As he leaned around my chair, I kissed his neck.
"I like your beard," he said, starting down the stairs. "It scratches more."
"Yeah?" I inquired. "Did you have an itch on your neck that needed to be scratched?"
"Yeah!" he said, as he reached the bottom of the stairs.
