Craig and I have found the infamose big "1,2,3" to be very effective with Carter, our 3 1/2 year old. The ever looming thret is that he will get his hair pulled if we ever get to three, so he never lets us get past 1,2. Today I asked him to put his shoes on, and asked him again a moment later, still no result. I resorted to counting, almost subconciously. Like always, he jumped up on 2 and started putting his shoes on. A moment later I hear to the tune of "once there was a snowman", "Almost got my hair pulled, hair pulled, hair pulled. Almost got my hair pulled, pulled right up".
