Opposite of everything you say?

Any of you have this issue? Toddler will want the opposite of anything you say? It's very frustrating. Even stuff he really likes.
Like you could say "Let's go for ice cream." and he'll say no he doesn't like ice cream.

Or you can say, should we go to the park or for a bike ride? He won't give his opinion. Then we'll say okay let's go for a bike ride. Then that's when he says no, he wants to go to the park instead. It's really annoying, especially when he does it when it's for something he actually wants.

Let me guess...he's 3, right? Mine both did it (the 6yo still does sometimes if she's grumpy) I think because at that age they figured out that they could. It does work itself out but in the meantime I tried to not give so many choices. If they were tired or even slightly grumpy a choice freaked them out a bit.

Yeah, often when he's getting tired. It's a good indicator that he's tired lol.
He's four in a couple weeks.

I could have written your post. My ds is the same way and it really is tiring for me. He's 3. People always say terrible twos but when he was two everything was wonderful. Hugs mama, I so understand!
