Wait, you mean twiddling is not something ALL toddlers do?? Oh, lord... I thought there MUST be some evolutionary explanation for it... DD twiddles obsessively, picks at my skin, scratches, sticks fingers wherever there's a hole, tried to TOUCH my EYEBALLS, etc etc.
It's like a mindless tic. If I ask her to stop scratching or picking at me, she will... For a few seconds, and then, absentmindedly, it begins again. Keeping my shirt closed on the other side, becomes a battle, especially if I'm in public.
Now you're telling me this is just a bad habit I've let go on for too long! Hahaha. Oh well, I think I'll just keep repeating "gently, gently, stop scratching me please, thank you...." for a while longer. These kids....
