When my oldest was just 5 yrs old he was obsessed with Power Rangers. He loved the White Ranger so much he was a Power Ranger for Halloween 2 -3 yrs in a roll. He also had a Pokemon collection that he swore would be worth a ton of money one day. Oh how he loved those Pokemon cards. He woke up every morning to watch both shows and he had to have new Pokemon cards every weekend. He also loved Scooby Doo and his whole room was decorated in Scooby Doo. Oh how he loved that pup.
Here we are 16 yrs later. I’m raising 2 more boys ages 5 and 3! My oldest son is 22 yrs old. My 3 yr old Loves Scooby Doo it’s almost an obsession. He recently announced he wants Scooby Doo bedding which as soon as we get him a twin bed we’ll get for him. Just saw Scooby Doo set at Walmart that I think will match the room I just painted for the boys.
My son was right about those Pokemon cards being valuable although he had no idea in what way they would be valuable. He gave his baby brother his collection of Pokemon cards because he saw how excited he was to look at and talk about them. It does my heart good to see my boys interacting. I imagine its not easy having younger brothers about 17 yrs younger but I’m so happy when they can find a way to connect with eachother.
What more can a mother ask for. It does my heart good to see my boys have a common interest. That Pokemon Card Collection that I spent so much money on almost 20 yrs ago is worth more than I would know today.
