Happy Mother's Day + Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Pokémon Detective Pikachu has a lot of twists, it's very twisty...and the tween & I decided to celebrate Mother's Day by going to see this funny film at a movie theater during opening weekend. Half a dozen kids and a dozen adults had a blast. Lina wore the adorable Pikachu hat (click here to see her wearing the hat for Halloween) & the staff loved it and she was given extra packs of the limited edition special booster packs, including this cool coffee break Detective Pikachu card:

Recently, Lina had a fantastic 11 year wellness exam at the doctor's office...she is never nervous during visits with her pediatrician & the nurses, they are very kind and everything goes smoothly. We were happy to hear that she is still totally healthy. She received 2 vaccination shots (only 1 booster dose left to be given after age 16, yay, and that's it...about 2 1/2 dozen vaccines since she was 2 months old, thankfully no side effects), nurse offered an organic lollipop and Lina chose yummy strawberry.

We ate eggplant & spinach cheese lasagna at an Italian restaurant. Yum. Then, she lost her 12th baby tooth (only 8 to go!) hours later at home. Now that our important appointments are taken care of...we can focus on making plans for some fun adventures for the rest of spring and staying cool for summer.

She was super excited to get her favorite annual almanac (National Geographic Kids, 2020 edition) on the way home & her first L.O.L. Surprise! Under Wraps Eye Spy Series.

I hope all the moms had a Happy Mother's Day and all the dads will have a fabulous Father's Day next month.
