Stay firm, and emphasise that she has to do what you tell her, not vice versa. You can't have a 2 year old ruling the roost or making decisions about what they will and will not do. I wouldn't even try to reason too much with her about whatever it is she's refusing to do, just the fact that mummy is boss

This is normal, just make sure you let her know...You don't get to tell mommy no! Do what you are told to do, thank you. If you need to, take her by the hand and walk her thru doing whatever you told her to do. Stay firm and follow thru, you might need to add a timeout if she keeps it up.
