Pokemoned

My friend read the last blog post and texted that she’s got a whole box of Pokemon that she was just about to donate to the Boys & Girls Club.

Would we like them?

Yes! Leo said. Yes! A thousand times yes! Minutes later, in what felt like a race-to-stop-the-airplane moment, she showed up at our house laden with Pokemon cards.

It has been a very happy and peaceful few days in the home of Mrs. Mouthy. The boys are thoroughly enjoying their Pokemon. They are also enjoying the box of human teeth that was included.

Vincenzo thinks he’s going to make a necklace out of them.

When my kids lose teeth I’ve never known what to do with them. Throwing them in the garbage felt irreverent. Should I bury them? Flush them? Compost them? Burn them?

Well now I know the answer: you trade them. This week instead of “I’ll trade you a Solgaleo GX for MegaCharizard,” my boys are saying things like, “I’ll trade you two bicuspids for one molar.” The ones with blood are worth the most, of course.

So thanks for the Pokemon and the teeth, Sandy. But thanks most of all for this blog post. (Also, LMK if you have any nail clippings or umbilical cords you might be willing to share.)
