To carry on the new tradition of Thursdays Lite (or whatever Beth is calling it), I’m posting the rerun (for some) of a list my lovely sister-in-law and I conceived together last year just after the opening of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

Enjoy … and thanks for the very entertaining comments on my last post about Nanny MacPhee!

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD MIGHT BE A BIT TOO INTO STAR WARS . . .

KIDS:

1 – Tries to use Jedi mind tricks to persuade you to buy her a Barbie

2 – Favorite song is the Star Wars theme

3 – Calls you Darth Tyrannus when unhappy with you

4 – Comments on how her baby doll looks like a Jedi after she swaddles it

5 – Refers to the family vehicle as the Millennium Falcon

6 – Sibling rivalry involves attempted use of Force powers

7 – Any long, pointed object becomes a lightsaber

8 – Wants to grow her hair so she can style it like Padme’ or Leia

9 – Protests what he doesn’t like by saying, “I have a bad feeling about this!”

10 – Insists on Star Wars themed foods

PARENTS:

1 – You refer to your children as “my little padawans” (or younglings)

2 – You hum the Imperial March as you prepare to carry out discipline

3 – You actually agree to BUY Star Wars themed food

4 – You buy all the Star Wars action figures the day they are released so you can get them before they sell out

5 – A compelling reason to home school is so you can attend SW ROTS at noon on opening day to beat the crowds

6 – You consider going to see SW ROTS a field trip

7 – You buy Kellogg’s cereals just for the lightsaber spoons

8 – Instead of telling your children to be careful as they go out to play, you say, “May the Force be with you”

9 – Discipline involves the plea, “My son! Don’t go over to the dark side.”

10 – On stressful days, you walk around muttering, “Dark chocolate is our ally.”
