I have 2 1/2 year old b/g twins, and the attitude/defiance drives me crazy some days. I don't know what to do when they refuse to get dressed (they are capable of doing this themselves, I refuse to do it for them), throw drinks on the floor, won't pick up toys, etc. I know some people say "it's just 2-year old behavior, they're learning their limits, etc." I don't believe that in every case. They know the limits, it hasn't changed. And it's not every day, either. I'm pregnant with another baby, due next March, and I tend to get frustrated more easily than before I was pregnant; I feel like I lose my temper a lot, and my kids deserve a happy mom who doesn't constantly yell at them to do things. How do you deal with this?!
