Example: Yesterday morning (Thursday) I had been talking to him and telling him we were going to music class together (AKA Kindermusic). So we left the house around 9:50 because music class started at 10:30 and I needed to go make a return at Kohls before hand. Well, as soon as I pulled into the Kohls parking lots Ramsey started saying "no" and crying. I thought he'd get over it and after all I only needed 5 minutes of his time there. So I got him out and let him walk in. I told him to hold my hand which he refused. When I tried to get his hand he proceeded to sit down in the parking lot and cry. Really? So I scooped him up and ran inside. I got a cart so he could sit as he was still crying very loudly. I started to head for the return desk but he was very upset, I mean the snotty nose sort of upset. So I decided it wasn't worth it and he wasn't calming down so out we went. I got him back in the car seat and and said "what in the world is wrong" and he said "DANCE". Even though I was mad I realized he thought we were going to Kindermusic and that this is what his little mind was set on and this detour to Kohls was a cruel joke. I felt bad but his intensity truly needed to come down a notch. As we approach 2 years old I am crossing my fingers that I can survive this "Spirited" child. He is so much fun but he seriously knows how to make his Mommy feel super crazy at times.

Ramsey and I had some free playtime at home this afternoon. I decided to change his sheets and let him play on the mattress for a little bit. He thought this was pretty cool. I think he would have played on it all afternoon if I'd let him. The free toys are always the best!

Mr. Ramsey is going to start going to our church's learning center two mornings a week for pre-school. Typing pre-school makes me cringe because it makes me feel like I am forcing him to grow up too soon, which will never be the case I hope. So I've decided to call it PLAY SCHOOL. Afterall that is really all it is. It is just some organized play time and time to be social. He'll go Monday and Wednesday morning from 8:30-11:15. We went for open house today and he seemed to love it and didn't want to leave. I'm sure the first week or so he'll be on his best behavior and once he gets comfortable, they better get ready!!!

Ramsey looking like a tourist. You have to wear socks inside so white socks and crocs were the look:

Here Ramsey is reading one of my books from my childhood called "If I found A Whistful Unicorn" It has become one of his favorites too which is pretty neat. It has the date my Mom and Dad gave it to me on the inside (1985) along with a note from them. Man, I'm getting old but it means I get to have a family of my own and I love it!

Since there was visitation on Wednesday and the funeral on Thursday which wasn't appropriate to bring Ramsey to, Cope's parents came up to help me. It was great to have their help and Ramsey enjoyed having their full attention. Judy even took Ramsey to his first Kindermusic class since I could not. She said they had fun and Ramsey refused to sit still and instead needed to wonder the room and make his presence known. Why and I not surprised?
