Dylan is 6!

My kid celebrated a birthday today. Instead of throwing him a party, we're taking him to Tokyo Disney Sea ("Where Adventure and Imagination Set Sail") on Wednesday, to avoid the weekend crowds. Apparently the Disney theme parks here are quite popular with local 20- and 30-somethings who don't have children. Stay tuned for a full report. This photo was taken at D's classmate Jerald's birthday party a couple weeks ago. Each child who turned up at the shindig received a Master Pokemon Ball as a game prize (at this age, everybody's a winner!). Conor informs me that the Master Ball is an important tool for Pokemon trainers, because it helps them catch -- and train -- Pokemon, a.k.a. Pocket Monsters, creatures with names like Piplop and Pokia and Apom. (I feel lucky that as the mother of two boys and no girls, I am spared all talk of Hannah Montana, but could this be worse?)
