I need a couple of book recommendations. I'd prefer from some BTDT moms. I can only get one or two books. So here's the background:<br>
My dd turned two in October. She is very verbal and speaks very well. She is very clever with her words. She's strong-willed and defiant. Her favorite phrase is I don't want to. She is fully pee-pee trained, but refuses to use the potty. But also hates a diaper. She is very uncooperative most of the time. Now, if we are not trying to get her to do something we want her to do, then she is a great joy. She has a great sense of humor, she's warm and loving, she is a good conversationalist, and just generally a lot of fun. She sometimes seems hyperactive. She goes and goes all day and won't take a nap. She gives us terrible trouble going to sleep at night. We've had a lot of big changes over the past few months. The biggest probably being her sister being born in July. But she doesn't seem to have a difference in behavior since these changes started. So if anybody can recommend anything, I'd appreciate it. If you need more info, pm me. Thanks.
