I must confess that when the husband is at a dental appointment and little son and I have the house all to ourselves, we may sometimes engage in full-on Jedi battles. Throughout the entire house.
Little son has mad Jedi skills and is not opposed to teaching me some pretty sweet moves from time to time. I wish I could be a Jedi, but mostly I just have to be Darth Mom. Are Darths Jedis? I’m not well-versed in all things Jedi, but I am learning.
As I said, there may have been a Jedi battle in our home today- after the insulation guy left. Because if the battle had begun while he was in our attic, he may have thought we were a little crazy. Plus, we try not to use Jedi powers on innocent by-standers and stuff like that.
Little son especially loved when I somersaulted up onto my bed and held him at bay with my light saber. It was a wickedly awesome move, if I do say so myself. Also, the bed was a great place to be when Jedi Boy pushed the force in my direction with his open palm, because Jedi-forced open-palm pushes are forceful and you need a soft place to fall back forcefully in dramatic fashion, which I ended up doing over and over and over again. And again.
We battled throughout the house, yelling stuff like, “Surrender to the force” and “You’re not my father” in authentic Jedi voices, mostly because those are the lines I remember from the movies. Plus I remember the line, “these are not the droids you are looking for” except we have no droids anyway so we couldn’t use that one. And there was lots and lots of loud laughter, and, as you already know, some evil-speaking. And it was good the husband was gone because we were kind of loud and I don’t know what his clients might have thought about the background noise and the chasing, since he does work from home and his office is located in the battle zone.
But, I also think that had the husband not had a dental appointment, he prolly would have joined the battle. And I would have made sure he was on my side. Because Jedi Boy is pretty strong in the force and I can use all the help I can get.
