We've introduced our kids to the Star Wars trilogy.

Marc could no be happier.

Pretty much all the jokes and one liners bouncing around here have "Come to the Dark side" punchlines.

In fact the morning after we watched Return of the Jedi Leo stumbled into the brightly lit bathroom and said "this is the light side, my bed is the dark side."

Of course, anyone who reads Marc's facebook status will already know that Clara told him she'd join him on the Dark side if he'd ask her to. To her credit, she's thought it over and has since decided that she'd follow in Luke's footsteps and try to get Marc to join her on the bright side LOL

Enjoying these movies with Clara and Leo has been so much fun. It is the first real action adventure film they've seen that is not animated (well some of it is but you know what I mean). The storyline had them hooked from "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.... " And the coolest thing, is that they didn't know all the surprises we've grown up with. Luke's father??? WHAAAT???? Clara even cried at the end of return of the Jedi, she knew it was only a story but she was genuinely sad that Luke's father died. She may love light sabers and droids but she is still the same empathetic little girl who loves cats, unicorns and rainbows.
