I mentioned this would go down in our family history. Hence, I should record this for posterity’s sake.
It was also a story of just gritting your teeth and going head on. 😂
Throughout the game, we had gone out of way, usually in a comfortable manner, to catch special pokemons. I was about 5 pokemons away to completing the local Pokedex. The day before, we had specially hunted down Chansey, Snorlax and a few more pokemons.
Z was enthused by this special chase.
Hence, when Lapras appeared on the pokemap near where we were headed for, we promptly decided to drive over and I knew I would have a good 10min to saunter to the location.
Little did I know that the venue was closed for upgrading.
We, 3 boys and I, followed the crowd, ran a full lap (or more) and came to a stop when faced with a barrier. I wanted to give up because it was so ridiculous to do it for a game.
But part of me didn’t feel like giving up.
I also wanted to be that cool mom to my kids.
I wanted to delight the kids with catching of the special Pokémon.
Plus, it just sounded fun, lame and alternative to do so.
Thus, I simply went ahead, went crazy but I got to share a colourful tale with the kids. Ultimately, I taught Z that we would face all adversities full front and we would complete what we set out to do.
