Early Morning Fun

Mornings as of late have included about a half hour of Pokemon. Yes, there is a Pokemon show. I admit, I have been very hard pressed to watch more than three minutes of the aforementioned show for a few reasons:

1. I do not like Pokemon

2. I do not understand Pokemon.

3. I do not want to like or understand Pokemon.


However, the kids seems to enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the occasional Saturday morning Super Friends show…and so I resign myself to letting them watch Pokemon.


But after my early morning run, on this day 2 of summer vacation, the tv was turned off. Only one show this morning, followed by some yummy mango & strawberry smoothies and then onto the real fun …

we are building a marble run!

Our son just had a birthday party and one of the gifts was an amazingly cool marble run (Hape Toys) he received from a friend. This marble run, without question, is one of the coolest gifts he received and, of course, his older sister loves it.


The kiddos have been upstairs for over an hour enjoying making two runs out of the one. I am hoping for a joint collaboration later this summer. For now, however, I will take the peace and quiet this toy is affording me and do what I do best … enjoy my coffee, clean the kitchen, do some laundry and, well, you know the rest 🙂

    Seriously, your best one! Short and sweet and to the point! Amazing ….the similarities between the super friends and Pokemon pictures! Very weird. I really enjoyed reading this!!

    1. It is weird (or maybe not) the similarities between the two. And I do remember zoning out to Superfriends the way the kids do now to Pokemon.

    Nothing like hands-on building and construction toys, is there?! Except, of course, Pokemon [?]

    1. So very, very true! Today we are sewing and enjoying a quiet and rainy afternoon at home. That, too, is great for the soul.
