A Different Type of Monster Parenting!

pokemon-ball-colors-simple-background-1440x900With the latest craze of Pokémon Go, it’s time to get in on it!!  Well, in my own silly mommy way!

From the refresher I received from hubby Jeff, Pokémons are small “pocket monsters” that are caught and trained by their Pokémon Trainers to battle each other for sport.

So, a thought hit me!!  We have two “little monsters” ourselves at home!  If they were Pokémons, which pocket monster character would they be?

In my quest for a bit of fun, I found a number of “which Pokemon are you” tests online, and set out to find what kind of pocket monsters my little boys are.

Here are the results!  Surprisingly (and amusingly), the test results were not so far off!

Jayden is a Snorlax


One of the most popular and adorable Pokémons, Snorlax is often found in mountains and forests. It wakes up only to eat and seldom for exercises. It is not a picky eater, as its strong stomach allows it to eat even moldy food without feeling any ill effects. When hungry, it is not satisfied until it consumes many kilos of food. Snorlax is the heaviest Pokémon and is docile enough to let children and small Pokémon bounce on its large stomach (source from Bulbapedia).

Our Jayden loves to eat and is not picky at all!  He is always hungry and can consume as much food as an adult!  He may not weight as much as a Snorlax, but he is big and solid for his age!  With still his baby fat on him, he’s great for cuddles, nibbles and blowing tummy raspberries!

Joshua is a Ninjask


The fastest Pokémon, Ninjask is a very swift and is said to be able to evade any attack, and was long believed to be invisible due to its high speed. If it is not trained properly, it will refuse to obey its Pokémon Trainer and cry loudly. Due to this, it is said to put the Trainer’s abilities to the test. Hearing its loud cries for too long induces a headache (source from Bulbapedia).

Our Joshua’s abundance energy lets him zoom very fast everywhere and all the time.  He is quick, agile and has difficulty slowing down.  Although Joshua does not cry like a Ninjask, he is extremely talkative and inquisitive.  Getting him to stop talking requires patience, and constant babbling may cause some to develop mild aches to the head.


We are now proud “monster” parents of 2 Pokémons!!

With the start of the school year, I need to get my own Pokémons trained, equipped and in shape to do battle with all the other little Pokémons out there!
