No, you're definitely not alone! We've been dealing with this too. We've banned That's so Raven and Hannah Montana in our house We think some of the attitude and defiance was coming from there.

I think it is part of them learning there indepernance as they are starting kindy and have to be there own person at school and think they can come home and try to be boss here too. Christian has had a major issue with mouthing back to me but not DH, it is like he is testing me to see if i will put up with it. maybe try and have T help you with H during her fussy time, maybe have a lovey that T can get for H during that time and only for that T to give her to make her feel more involved at that time. I had to do a similar thing when Christian was a baby for DD. Good luck to us all that this phase passes quickly.

I think certain shows on Disney have a lot to do with how Hannah was acting. Those shows are geared towards older kids but Hannah loves them.

man oh man, Sarah is a walking bag of drama!
everything that comes out her mouth is exaggerated.
If whatever is going on is not to her liking, she makes grand dramatic physical gestures and spits/raspberries at the offender before stomping off .
things like folding her arms and stomping her feet as well as nasty faces and smart mouthing. Its horrible!

I've had to get back in her face and tell her that I will not tolerate her disrespectfulness. And yelling things like "you act like that and there's no nightlight tonight. Just try it again and see how far you get"

Its totally a phase.
