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?

Macaroni necklaces?

Cottonball snowmen?

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.

  1. I was laughing at my cousin. She is 35 and just this year realized that the word was "light saber" - all these years she thought they were called Life-savers
