My daughter is two years old (26 months), and lately she is getting to be annoying. What I mean is, she says "no" to everything. She gets fiesty: hitting, scratching (and laughing about it). She is so picky about what she eats that I've given up for a time. If she'll only eat waffles, whole wheat bread with pb, goldfish crackers, peas and grape tomatoes, then so be it.
Going on outings is a nightmare, because she won't sit in the stroller or shopping carts. It makes what used to be an enjoyable activity VERY unenjoyable. I'm a single mom so my dd has to go on all my errands.
I tell her to do something, and I might as well be talking to myself. I try not to get visibly upset or frustrated, but I can't help it sometimes.
Lately, I've been looking forward to her going to bed, and it disturbs me. Thinking about tomorrow morning makes me feel ill.
What's wrong with me?

I've had some rough times with my son as well lately. I just keep trying to think positive and work on making some changes. Do you get a break? Maybe you should line up a sitter for a relaxing night out to relieve some stress- good luck!!!
