Is she regressing?

Individual experience. Results will vary.

Thank you for the excellent input.

As additional info, she is definitely having a massive growth spurt, mentally and physically. She’s suddenly an inch taller. She has added tons of words to her vocabulary lately, has started riding her balance bike with her feet up, has been using “no,” a lot more freely these days and is a bit defiant sometimes, always with a smile, though…not a nasty defiance. She’s generally a pretty cooperative and very precocious kid, though.

She has a 6 yo brother, but no new babies/divorce/etc. in the house. No daycare/babysitter/anything else like that.

Her issues started about 4 days into a 7 day remodeling project that took all our attentions. (Had to replumb entire house due to leaks.) May be coincidental, but thought I should mention it. Had no water in our house, so used our guest house for bathing.  But, she used our toilets and I flushed it via a bucket of water.

To clarify, you say you think she’s not regressing.  Then, in paragraph 3, you list how to overcome regression.  Should I skip that section of the advice and just use Paragraph 4?  Or, are you telling me what to do in both 3 and 4?

Sorry, I’m a little confused.

Thank you SO much for your time and help.  I appreciate it greatly.
