Oh! The horror!
my excuse how it happened. The girls have had this thing since day 1. They are forever collecting these silly Pokemon. Ok, whatever. For some reason, Thing 1 decided not to participate. Odd really, since he is the video game king, but again, whatever.
I have a dear friend who also has it. Why???? I asked. Because, she said, my teenagers play it and it is something we can talk about and do together. Still, I say WHATEVER.
Then, Monday, the spawn decide they will go to lunch and spend the afternoon with The Hubs and I. Why? I suppose because there was mention of getting new shoes. And in the midst of the lunch Thing 1 decides he is going to download this game and become a Pokemon Go person.
So I hold fast to my WHATEVER, but I feel it weakening.
Then, they say to me....."Come on Mom, download it and we can go Pokemon hunting together!"
And all of a sudden I remember.
Come On Mom--
Push me on the swing
Take me to the park
Let's go swimming
Read me a story
Let's play a game
Hold my hand
Come with me
Let's make cookies
We walked 3 miles, hatched eggs, went to poke stops, took over a gym and caught all manner of Pokemon from lunch until after dark.
I drank the Kool-Aid. And it was delicious.
