Ready go!

Little Elvis has an interesting new habit. He's "ready go" as soon as he wakes up. Most mornings, we do actually have somewhere to go -- doctor's appointment, errands, playgroups.

But somedays we don't have anywhere to go. While I'm happy to just hang out around the house or in one of our cars, Little Elvis isn't. As soon as he's dressed and the shoes are on, we head outside to one of the cars.

Once inside the car, he climbs into his carseat and tries to buckle himself in, chanting "ready go, ready go, ready go." If I tell him no, well, it's not pretty.

I'm not sure why he wants to go somewhere so badly. He doesn't enjoy grocery shopping or sitting in a waiting room. And up until recently, he's seemed to detest playgroups.

But, last week, while out running errands we had to go inside the bank. Even though I wasn't thrilled about the inconvenience, the teller did give Little Elvis a blue lollipop.

I think his new need to go, go, go must be tied to his memory of that tasty blue treat.
