the essential Star Wars

Kyle: "Mom, do you know who I'm pretending to be?"

Me: "Uh....well..."

(He waves his hand around in front of his face.)

Me, wildly guessing a Jedi, any Jedi: "Anakin!"

Kyle: "No...."

Ben: "Darth Vader!"

(Kyle begins to take noisy breaths.)

Me: "...who Anakin turned into! So we were both right!"

Kyle: "Yeah, that's why I started saying 'hoe, shhh"!"


"Star Wars" has become a big part of our daily conversation around here. To make matters worse, we are working our way through Episodes 4, 5, and 6 on our family movie nights. Tomorrow is "Return of the Jedi." They're so excited, they can barely contain themselves!

I never, ever dreamed I'd spend so much of my mothering days discussing Jedis.

So fun, though! Scotch joins right in on the light saber battles whenever LK pulls them out. So funny to see this little girl wearing pink and pig-tails battling and keeping up with her 6-year old brother! :)
