If we try and get him ready to go out, etc...it's the same...always a struggle.
    We are blaming the terrible 3's....and also some sibling jealousy. He can't keep his hands off of DS2...always wants to touch his head and squeeze him...sweet...but it often gets too rough.
    Thanks for your post....I know I'm not alone!!! Hopefully this stage is over soon!!!!
    Ya I didn't include the I don't like daddy/mommy/Shaelyn, I don't like those underwears, I can't carry this ball its too heavy, I can't walk anymore my legs are broken, the list goes on and on. Does sound like we are living in the same house. I don't know why they call them terrible twos, three is way worse!

This morning she actually ate strawberries and yogurt, but I had to spoon it into her mouth like she was 6 months old, lol. I feel for you, I hope this stage passes quickly!
    Ds probably asks for mcdonalds or timbits everyday. Or he's not hungry but if he saw a cookie or cheesies or something he would suddenly be starving. I'm not about denying him these things but you have to eat something healthy first. You can't have icecream for breakfast!

    Glad to hear that I am in the same boat with other parents and my kid is not a brat, but just a regular 3 yo

    I found that when DS gets home in the afternoon from daycare, hes STARVING.. and if I dont have dinner ready within the hour, he cant handle it and wants to snack like crazy.. which means a later dinner would not be eaten...
    So, I find myself scrambling to get dinner cooked as soon as I walk in the door from picking him up.. I agree with PPs.... feed them supper when they are really hungry and its a better bet they will eat it all up...
    My pediatrician said that what goes in their mouth is about the ONLY thing they know they can control at that age.. at a time when they are pushing boudaries and testing limits... which totally makes sense but def. is SUPER annoying as a parent...
