When do kids transition to actually noticing when they’re sticky?

Right now, my kids can have ice cream on their faces and syrup in their hair and paint on their hands and not notice.

Is this something that happens during puberty? Sticky awareness?

I’ve been baffled by this for years.

Oh, they’ll have it down by the time they’re 40, never fear!

Probably earlier for girls (I’m guessing); usually about the time they start to notice grooming is important. Remember, they’re still building brains and throwing out new neurons like the Big Bang threw stars. New learning has to be reinforced constantly because the neurons get buried under new ones. Metaphorically.
