Star Wars: Obsess much?
So what does your 5-year-old child make at school during craft time?
Beautifully colored pictures of animals or the park or a sailboat?
Maybe. What does mine spend his time doing?
Making paper lightsabers. Not just one. But many. Many over the course of several weeks. There's rarely a day when he jumps into the car after school without sporting one of these suckers.
Nevermind he has three - count 'em - THREE psuedo-real lightsabers at home. Red. Blue. AND green. That light up. With sound effects. The whole she-bang.
But it's making his own that brings him joy. So I'll try not to get creeped out...too much.
