Something is up with Abby. I don't know if it's the pregnancy, or it's just a phase that happens to coincide with the pregnancy. It's seems like this child wants to challenge me on everything. Her favorite word is "no". We had some unexpected house guests this past weekend. Abby and I were on our way out to the store and she decided she wasn't going with me. Normally, she always wants to go with me, but she was afraid she was going to miss something at the house I guess. Usually, she would have a choice but Tony was working on this guy's computer and preferred that she go with me. I told her she had to go with me, but she just said "No, I'm not going". Excuse me, I didn't give you a choice. She stood her ground and wouldn't budge. Tony actually had to get stern with her and then, of course, she did what she was told. This has become a daily thing in the last week and it's totally new behavior for her. It seems like lately she's doing this just with me, not Tony. I'll have a conversation with her about it and why it's not acceptable, and not 30 minutes later she'll be doing it again. I give her choices all the time, but obviously there are just some things she doesn't have a choice on whether to do or not. I'm just going to try to give her lots of attention and praise for positive things because I hate to be constantly arguing with her. I don't want her to be always in trouble, but I refuse to raise a child that thinks she can refuse to do things and be disrespectful.
