yes .. but not funny and need to be address right away when she does it... thats not nice.. face her and tell her.. remove her fingers before the pinching .and hold her hand and not nice. no no no not nice. put her down if you can when she head but you . because she is learning about you and herself.... and she need to learn the word no.

Totally normal :). My son would bite me & only me....its about comfort. I made a big deal about him hurting mommy & needing hugs & kisses. He did stop eventually. My daycare lady also suggested to me to bite him back lightly so he would understand that it hurt. I tried it once & he seemed to get the general idea. It will stop thou....hope this helps.

yeah its normal, testing boundaries keep enforcing the correct behaviour but also explain why it not nice to do it ie ouch that hurts now mummy is sad kiss it better?
helped with my son and if he did it consecutively id pinch him back and when he cried explain its not nice cos it hurts and apologise then ask the child for one for doing it to you

My daughter is 2.5 now and did that too. She hit me, slapped me, all that and didn't do it to anybody else. It appears kids do it to whomever they feel most comfortable with. Take it as kind of a compliment. Mine finally grew out of it and usually they do. It really hurts your ego as a mom though.
