Kyle: "Mom, do you know who I'm pretending to be?"
(He waves his hand around in front of his face.)
Me, wildly guessing a Jedi, any Jedi: "Anakin!"
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.
