Pokemon Go Makes a Strong Come Back At Our House

Yes, we play Pokemon Go. Yes, we like it. Yes, we are safe. Last summer when Pokemon Go came out, I downloaded it thinking it would be fun for Kai. Turns out, it’s fun for both of us!

I know the Pokemon Go gets a lot of bad press. Much like the rest of my life, I focus on the positive parts. Such as getting outside and walking all around the city to find Pokemon. As long as you’re safe and use common sense, I believe getting out and about with Pokemon Go is always better than drawing the shades and parking it on the couch in front of the gameboy/ipad/Wi or whatever other zombie device you prefer.

My kids are trained to chant “Eyes up, phone down” anytime we near crossing a street. Personally, I think this is a good chant for anyone walking outside whether you’re texting, emailing or rocking the Pokemon Go. IMG_0337The new meaning to double fisted. Last summer, I started my own game on another phone. This lasted for a short time.

After taking a few months off from the Pokemon Go, we are back at it! I love to fill Kai’s bag with goodies by walking around the city and collecting goodies at poke stops for him. Like any good kid, he likes to “use the stuff I collect” so we make a pretty rad team if you ask me.

In the beginning of Pokemon Go, it’s really easy to Level Up because it only takes 1000 points or so. That goes away once you hit level 20. IMG_9928We are so close to leveling up to 24 and I will not stop until we do. Lol! Spoken like the Dedicated Pokemon Go mama that I am. Happy Adventuring my friends!

UPDATE: Less than 24hours and I was able to Level up to 24! Hardwork and dedication really do pay off. 🙂IMG_9966.PNG

Laundry with 3 little peanuts is a daily struggle

You know how they say you spend 1/3 of your life in bed so buy a good mattress? Well, it feels like I spend 1/3 of my life doing laundry. These little people below love to CHANGE their clothes all day long. I’ve implemented a new house rule of wearing jammies for 2 nights. Even that is not sticking well, because they forget a lot. Kai always looks surprised when I remind him as he’s tearing his jammies off and throwing them in the laundry basket. And Blaize and Pepper are the worst for constantly changing clothes. They’ll look at a princess dress, put it on for a hot minute and call it “dirty” long before it’s time. Lately, they all help me (in their own special way) with laundry from washing to folding Hoping it’s going to change sometime soon. And if it doesn’t, I’ll just relish these crazy group hugs that bring me to my knees and make me smile. IMG_9837Our group hugs often slide to the ground. It’s something to see especially in public at Starbucks.IMG_9865.jpgOur infamous sock pile that makes me dizzy
