Can I just say that this phrase is driving me batty. Dd is 28 mos, and she now asks for help with EVERYTHING! For example, she's been able to get into the fridge for months now, then suddenly any time she wants it open, she goes over there, gives it a little tug then yells "help!" She's potty learned, and been able to pull her pants down for months, but now she runs in there and "help!" She also does this while playing with her toys. Not only is she asking for help all the time, she is getting frustrated at the drop of a hat. She will yell that she needs help, kind of tell me what she is trying to make said toy do, and when I make it do what I think she wants it to, if it's not right, she flips out. I'm loosing my mind!!!! And I'm not exagerating, she asks for help almost ever 5 minutes or less. I'm five and a half months pregnant, and I'm tired and I HATE jumping up every five minutes. I'm starting to get angry every time I hear "Help!" Is this normal? is this a stage? I spend plenty of time with her, so I don't think that its that she needs more attention. And what is an acceptable limit? I mean if she's standing at the fridge, and I KNOW she can open it, is it mean to make her do it? It really has just started up this week, but it's becoming extremely irritating. so, uh..... HELP!
