He is three, and has developed a thing for washing. He loves to clean. He keeps having to wash his hands and his face, he says it is dirty. It is not. He will get up from bed after the ligths are off, run to the bathroom and wash his face, again. If left unsupervised he can empty all the liquid soap in the sink, fill up with wather, and immerse his hands and arms, take a flannel and wash his face, arms, hands. Etc.

Should I worry?

He doest seem to mind being dirty when eating. It is when the meal is over he minds.

But I think I agree about the mudcakes, I shall make an effort to get him to do some "dirty" play to let him see how fun it is. grin
