Never Leave Your Droids with Reagan

Jim has been sharing bits and pieces of Star Wars with the kids recently. They LOVE it! As long as there is action going on anyway! It’s been fun to watch them pick up on the characters that Jim and I love so much and then use those characters in their own imaginative play. It has also been rather enlightening…

Yesterday, Jim was playing Star Wars with Reagan, Jonathan, and Thomas. Reagan, of course, was Princess Leia. Jim was the bad guy, presumable Darth Vader. He snatched up Princess Leia and dared anyone to try and save her. J jumped up, “I am RD2 (we’re working on the names) and I will save the princess!” and ran at Daddy. T jumped up, “And I am C3PO and I will save the princess too!” And he ran at Daddy also. Daddy Vader is overcome by the droids, allowing Princess Leia to escape. Now Daddy Vader’s arms are free, and he scoops up the droids, one under each arm. Looking at Princess Leia, he booms, “Now, who will save the droids?”

To which Princess Leia responds nonchalantly, “Well, they aren’t really my robots, so you can just throw them in the trash.”

Mrs. Harris, I have loved watching your kids grow up and hearing their funny stories just like this one! I hope all is well with you.
