Is it bad to kiss the "boo boos" away at age 2?

Q: Our 2-year-old son stubs his toe, falls on his behind, etc., he comes to me. My husband says that acknowledging the "boo boo" is going to make our son soft. He says that I should always lead with "you're fine." I disagree. Am I doing a disservice to our kid by acknowledging his fall and kissing the bumps and bruises?
