we love star wars



Did any of you happen upon the hilarious article in Wondertime this month about fathers, sons, and Star Wars? Here are a couple of the pictures they published with the story... so funny and yet oh so familiar. So here's a little shout-out to all of you moms who have at least 2 plastic light-saber duels a day. Hopefully you occasionally win!

Too funny! I will have to check out the article. The Easter bunny brought D and Daddy a light saber this year! And let me assure you, 2 is the minimum number of battles those boys have a night!

Yes, anything saber or sword like, any stick, wrapping paper tube or the likes is bound to be used in a little star wars battle. I hear you!

Rachel said...

How funny!! Yes, this is totally my house. My son isn't even two yet and he's a master! I blame my husband.

Tammy said...

Oh trust me...the battles will never end. The girls have gotten in on it too. Usually my girls use their Jedi mind powers to communicate where to hit their Daddy to knock him down in one swift move.

Funny pictures!
We love Star Wars at our house and have practically worn out the videos--and my boys are 9,15, and 45 (hubby:))
My daughter even dressed as Princess Leah one Halloween.
They tried to make our dog into R2D2, but he wasn't interested.

Monica said...

We're big fans too! My boys still wear the jedi capes I did 3 halloweens ago, too bad the rest of the outfit is too small for them now, and the girls fight over the Princess Leias action figures they have, too crazy!

we were just watching it on sunday... love it!

Jana said...

Hilarious! I just videotaped my two boys and husband having a light saber duel tonight. We have blue, green and red. My oldest is holding out for Mace Windu's purple!

Bethany Hissong said...

We own three light sabers! And one Darth Vader mask. I still don't understand why my son and my husband love it so much, but it seems to be normal (?).

Carrie said...

Once my husband and I both played hookie and watched the original trilogy!
Have a Happy Happy Mother's day!

Lauren said...

These pictures are hilarious! Star Wars is such a classic. I cant wait for J to get into it - he will turn anything into a sword!

Lauren said...

ps Melissa I love your YODA stamps!! Did Brad buy those?

Audrey said...

We don't have light saber's yet, but I am sure we won't be able to be without them for much longer. They are O's favorite toy at every house he visits:) The boys do lots of improvising with kitchen spatulas in the meanwhile.

For a moment youhad me worried. I thought that was your son & husband!

Emily said...

Nothing beats Star Wars! Andi, Robbie, Spencer and I used to watch it constantly; when they re-released it, all of my friends dressed up as characters and went to the midnight show; and one friend based his entire farewell talk around it. I even threw my husband a Star Wars-themed b-day. Boy, I sound like a big nerd, don't I? Well, we don't go to conventions... hee hee.

We just got back from vacation and my son had snuck in his suitcase his 2 light sabers so that he could play them with the cousins. And they did.
