How do you tell the difference between true OCD and regular toddler/preschool 'isms?

Mornings are awful, my 3 year old screams and cries and throws tantrums while we try and get her dressed and out the door to daycare. Any tips on how to get kids out the door faster? She already willingly goes to bed at 8pm and is a fantastic sleeper.

i agree with the two previous responses in terms of getting them dressed before they leave. i have two -- a 3 1/2-year-old and 11-month old. our mornings have a flow: up, brush teeth, change clothes, down the stairs, eat breakfast, free play...that way, i don't have to interrupt playtime to get them dressed, etc. it's just a natural progression down the stairs where our day gets started. i will add one point, though...three is an incredibly difficult age. "terrible twos" is a misnomer. it's the threes that'll get ya! they challenge everything! good luck! http://chroniclesofmomnia.blogspot.com
Gifts for daycare teachers: Do you usually buy something or make something?
Answered on 15th December 2008:
we give a store-bought gift to our nanny (or some sort of gift certificate). we also have our three-year-old make something personal (ornament, painted jewelry box).
