Clean hands?

Yesterday, Summer and I had this conversation in the car.

Me: Are you licking your hand?

Summer: It tastes good.

Me: Oh, ok.

Then she licks the other hand.

Summer: Well, the other one doesn't taste good.

I don't know what is up with the hand licking, but yesterday was not the first time. The other day I told her to get her hands out of her mouth because they were dirty. Then she licked them both thoroughly and replied, "They're clean now!"

Oh well, at least she has high counts and can fight off any minor germs that might be on them. Of course, I don't want her to end up sick. She's had a runny nose on and off the past few weeks, but nothing that has slowed her down for any amount time. Maybe if I keep her hands germ-xed she will keep them out of her mouth because she does NOT like the taste of it. Now, where is that germ-x at?

Maybe she likes taking cat baths!

Perhaps she needs sodium. Our skin is very salty...and I know often times when kids lick their skin, that could be the issue.

Or, maybe she just likes to lick her hands. LOL
