The Lick…..

I was reading Whirlwind a book.

In the middle of a sentence, she leaned over and licked me and then asked…

“Is that my tongue?”

Ummm….. ye-ah.

This is what I don’t get. She is almost four years old. She knows that is her tongue. Even one year old Baby Bot knows where his tongue is.

It makes me so curious about kid and their thought process.  Did she just have a desire to taste my arm?  Did she do it and then realize that it was kind of gross but somehow wanted to cover up the act of doing something she knew was a little bit wrong?

Sort of like the time I was seventeen and drank beer until 9:30 in the morning. I knew it was wrong. But, I covered it up by telling my Mom that I fell asleep at a friends house. And I always thought she believed me.

I pulled a real fast one on her.

Now, I realize that I didn’t. And all it took was my daughter licking my arm.
