My three year old has been amazingly easy. She is my third child and is fairly relaxed. However, we've had the word mine enter into our vocabulary.
How do you handle it when your kids call mine at things? A friend says that nothing is ours and belongs to everyone in the world. She only has one child to teach this to. I expect all three of my kids to have some things of their own, share as appropriate, and keep their things off public areas of the floor :) . In my preferred idea, for example, the small one has a hat that is hers and it isn't for the other children to wear under normal circumstances.
Last night, my three year old had a melt down over cheese pizza. We ordered three pizzas, although two were healthier. We still have pizza left over for lunch today. The plan was to make pizza dough and let the kids help make dinner, but one of the kids had practice, etc and we ended up just ordering some. The three year old doesn't throw a fit over the pizza when it is homemade and dished from the kitchen. I think my pizza is better, so if anyone is going to call a pizza, it should be the gourmet one.
