Toddlerhood, we’ve got this licked!

img_8188I’m sure as soon as a consult Dr. Google on this, I’ll read it’s totally normal, but what the heck is with all the licking? My son likes to grab my face in both hands to make me look at him and then lick my face. When I tell him to stop, he licks his toys. Yesterday he licked his shoe. I’m starting to think the dogs are really rubbing off on him.

So after a quick Google consult, seems the magical age of the licking phase is 2 1/2 so the kid is right on time! I also noticed many of the people commenting had dogs. So he may indeed be imitating their behavior. I can handle the licking phase, but I’m going to put my foot down if he starts asking to poop in the yard.

Just kidding, he totally asked to poop in the yard and I told him go ahead just because I was excited he let me know he had to potty. (In the end, he did not take me up on the offer)

I guess for now I’ll just have to accept I’ve got a toddler who can’t hold his licker. 😂
