Q-ster went to “Kids Night Out” at preschool today, an activity session designed to free up parents to finish Christmas shopping, wrapping, or even have a date night. I love how expressive he’s become with words, but while he was gone, I thought for a few minutes that I had gone deaf. The little dude talks a LOT.
Apparently, he had a great time, since his fellow Star Wars-crazed buddy was also in attendance. Have you noticed that I have gone eight days without writing about anything Jedi? Believe me, it wasn’t easy to do, but I needed a lightsaber hiatus so that it wouldn’t drive the rest of you parents of princesses and Thomas the Tank Engine fans crazy.
Since the topic is unavoidable long term, here’s our latest craft. Q-ster requested a braid, just like the one worn by Ewan McGregor when portraying Obi-wan as an apprentice. It didn’t take too long to dig through the crate of false hair left over from costuming days and sew a few braids to a hair clip. He was soooo pleased with how much like a “real Jedi” he looks.
Sorry about the grainy photo. I'm having some trouble with my flash and may need to get the camera repaired.
And what is going on with our other son? Many charming grins, but not a lot of sleeping. Buster has decided that he can’t rest unless he is directly lying on top of me or SwingDaddy, which was tolerable during the first couple of nights of his illness, but is going to kill me if he doesn’t return to his crib soon.
