Boxing It Up

Little M has rediscovered some of the toys she used to love…

One of her old and now current faves is a vintage Star Wars lunch box.

She carries it like a purse, and fills it with all kinds of treasures.

The other day, I had to carry it because it was too heavy…you know, because of all the rocks.

It cracks me up how much she loves Star Wars. Especially since she has never seen it, and has no idea what the story is even about…or that Vader is really a bad guy, and does in fact, not have a happy heart.

But for now, ignorance is bliss.

And Star Wars love abounds.

    Funny. Just yesterday,re the blanket, I was actually wondering how does this kid know about Star Wars. What is it about Darth Vader? She is about 3 generations past! Now I know. Nobody knows!!!

    I wonder what will be the greater catastrophe- learning the truth about Vader or Santa Clause? How do you plan for that? Oh well, you have several years to figure it out! Ha! her first crush is on a \”bad boy\”. Good practice for you!
