Bed time coming - she suddenly shows interest in the bowl of cereal she turned down 20mins ago.
Bathtime - getting her books and asking us to look at them
Nappytime - finding a hat and puttingit.on and making a silly face so we stop.and laugh at her.

It is so so obvious that it is funny, along with being frustrating. Where has my compliant amenable dd gone?

It is infuriating sometimes, when we just want to get things done, and our children have other agendas. but I think it is hard for them too, that we always want to get them to do this, and do that.
My advice would be to slow down, and enjoy the moments with your DD. If she wants to brighten up nappy time, and make it a fun giggly time, then why not just have a laugh with her?
