My son used to have his episodes of smearing it everywhere, it was soooo gross. Yet he is otherwise fastidious -- if there is a piece of lint on the carpet, he will bring it to me to throw away. Or if something spills, he makes sure it's properly cleaned up. So smearing poop all over his closet mirror? No explanation except it is a new sensation. I think so long as they're not going to kindergarten doing it and have outgrown it, it's ok!
