Terrific Toddlers - Where do i buy one??!

Today, like many other days recently, I have struggled to get my 2yr old, and 3 yr old to have a day sleep.
Bronte sleeps wonderfully still, perhaps because she hasnt realised there is any other option yet!
However, Elliott and Zoey sometimes adamantly refuse to sleep!
Now Elliott does quite fine without day sleeps 6 out of 7 days a week, but Zoey, on the otherhand, needs her beauty sleep! Without it, we end every day in constant sooking, tantrums and eventually, a toddler asleep face first in her dinner. Not really the result we're looking for!

Argh! So when todays attempt at a sleep ended the same as the last few days, i decided i needed to do something differently
"If you do what you've always done, You'll get what you've always gotten" 

I do remember a not so distant time, when my girls got along, and peace resided in our home, but lately, its been feeling like that was just a dream! Until I remembered what worked last time!
Now i dont know exactly how we strayed after the first round of revelation, perhaps it was adding a third near-toddler to the mix, but i do know that we can get back there!

So i pulled out my copies of Terrific Toddlers, and Terrific Toddlers 2 by Mel Hyde, and as soon as i started reading, all of that gold mine of information and techniques started pouring back!

Today is day one of having Terrific Toddlers again!
And even just in a couple of hours, I can see things working!
