    Ha ha - Tom does this sometimes! He licks me or his sisters and then tells us we are strawberry flavour, like an icecream! I think he's just being affectionate! I guess our skin is quite salty-tasting and this might taste nice - our tongues are very sensory so I guess your little one might be learning all sorts of stuff about an object by licking it!
