Three year old driving me crazy

My daughter will be three next month and although she has been nothing further than perfect so far she's been getting on my nerves a little lately. I just had a baby two months ago so that has added to the busyness and stress and I just feel like all I do all day long is correct her "put that down, don't be so rough, don't get in the baby's face, we don't play in the bathroom" etc. I know it's normal three year old stuff I just feel like it's all the time the same things everyday and my patience is very slim these days. I feel like we have no positive interaction anymore between me being so busy around the house and constantly correcting her. I miss the relationship we used to have and I guess I am wondering if anyone can offer any advice to get through these next few months. Oh BTW I'm a single mom so I'm on my own over here.

I am going through the same thing with my son. He will be 3 in a couple of weeks. I feel like I am going crazy! I try to give him a game to plat with...he loves matching games and puzzles. That gives me a few minutes of breathing time. I would try to find little things to keep her busy. At that age, I have found they love to help clean! Give her a broom or have her help with the laundry. Even dishes works...mine plays in the water and helps rinse. He loves to help cook too. At least you can get some normal day to day stuff done and have a little helper.
