High-tech Hippie Mama to Dd1 (9/22/06), Dd2 (2/25/10) and Ds (05/27/2013). I eat Clean, cloth diaper, and spend way too much time online.
I curtailed this pretty fast with my Dd by telling her - with a big grin and NO reaction to the rudeness of spitting in my face, "OH! We ONLY spit in the SINK!"
I think spitting is a really fun discovery for kids, and if it's squelched it will come out in anti-social kinds of ways. Once she knew that she could run to the bathroom sink and spit any time she wanted, the fascination with spitting anywhere else was dramatically reduced.
If they figure out that it's a trigger for your annoyance, they'll probably make plays for that attention.
