Pokemon

What?!?  How is Pokemon still around?  It's been like 20 years that the "pocket monsters" have been dominating little boys lives in some way, shape, or form through video games, anime TV shows, and the trading card game.  Joseph was going to Pokemon birthday parties in preschool, and started collecting cards at least 2 years ago.  But now....now it is The. Big. Thing. with JT and all his friends.

Whether at home or at school, the second these kids see each other, all they want to do is trade cards. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it, as the cards just keep circulating around.  All I ever see is the top of their little heads staring down at bazillions of cards stuffed into bags and binders.







That last one is currently his best card.  Why, I don't know!  It's amazing that every kid this age knows every detail about these little creatures, but I've yet to meet an adult who has even the slightest clue.
