The part that got me was "absolute mother's dream"!
I don't doubt there are some lovely placid 3 year olds around, but I dare say the majority of parents will tell you it's a very *ahem* challenging age. I especially noticed this shortly after DS turned 3 - suddenly it was on like donkey kong :/

"Expect him/her to come when asked, put away toys when asked (usually), and generally want to please"

At 3 and a half DS learnt he could say 'no' when told to do something, that being compliant wasn't a must,
that made things interesting.
Then he started a childcare, where he learns some great new stuff, like he gives us a raspberry every time we say something that he doesn't like, EVERY TIME!!
He'll be 4 in 3mths so the dream child better show up soon!!

DS is 3 next month. Compliant no, defiant , strong willed and able to speak his mind, yes.
Maybe something magic will happen for us in Jsnuary... Not holding my breath.

I'm so glad to read this is all normal. I was thinking tonight in the shower that I need to look on BH to see if there are threads on 3 year olds.
DD was 3 in September and within the last week she has all of a sudden become a terror. She won't listen, discipline no longer scares her and the backchat, my goodness. Hanging out for age 4.

Our DD was a nightmare at 3, 2 has nothing on 3 in our case. Now that she's 4.5 she's so much better!
