We All Live In A Pokemon World

The majority of you don't know that theme song and if you did, you won't be able to get that out of your head. So, seeing a picture of Flannery's offspring in which she was the victor of "who falls asleep first," reminds me of a story that the Missus likes to tell often. If you've ever had a kid under five, chances are that they've worn you down almost to a nub, while they dance circles around you.

On one such occasion where I was asleep and the Missus was typing transciptions at home, she became "beyond tired" because of a heavy work load that day. She was sitting with Procrastinator Junior next to the couch and she fell momentarily fell asleep.

Well, before everybody fears for the worst, not to worry. Procrastinator Junior took this occasion to explore his creative side. The Missus woke up moments later, covered in Pokemon stickers.

That was the last time she "fell asleep" on the job. The next time that she was too tired, she would kick me out of bed (not that far from literally) and say "your turn to watch him."

I've been covered in Pokemon stickers before ... and I don't have children.

Don't ask.

Ah yes...covered in stickers.

I've had that, I've had things clipped/placed/woven into my hair, I've woken to minor flooding and peanut butter sandwiches jammed into VCR's.

Good times!

Bubs,

Isn't amazing, the amount of child-related mayhem that occur in the space of a couple of minutes?

One of my twin cousins colored on my shirt with markers. Luckily, it was one of those new-fangled markers that washes off with water.

There is a Pokemon called Jigglypuff that sings people and other Pokemon to sleep. When Jigglypuff finishes singing and discovers that everyone is sleeping, she takes the top off her faux microphone to reveal that it is actually a marker.

She then tags everyone's faces with the marker.
