How funny - I was just going to post on this.
Dd had three colds back-to-back this winter and naturally enough started picking her nose. Yuck! Drove me nuts. Now that the colds are over for the moment, she has taken to picking at the skin on her lips. Started with chapped lips, but now she's just picking at healthy lip skin. It seems to comfort her - this is a before-sleep ritual, among other times.
She refuses chapstick. I try gently to say, don't hurt your mouth, but she turns her back to me and does it in "private."
I hope this goes away. At least it's not nose-picking, I guess.
Can't give up actin' tough, it's all that I'm made of. Can't scrape together quite enough to ride the bus to the outskirts of the fact that I need love. ~ Neko Case
