Thomas Dies By Lightsaber

My little boy is growing up. He's reaching a stage where play time is taking on new adventures. It used to be Thomas the Tank Engine, now it is Star Wars. Now everything he talks about and does involves spaceships, lightsabers and hiding from Darth Vader.

Last night, Paul got home just in time to help put the kids to bed. While snuggling with Ian, the conversation of course revolved around the Star Wars topic.

Paul: Ian, did you play Star Wars today at school?

Ian: Yes, I played Star Wars with Aiden.

Paul: Oh, who did you get to be?

Ian: I don't know who I was. The teachers kept taking my lightsaber away.

Paul: Oh, what did you use for a lightsaber?

Ian: Anything I could find.

Paul: Next time, just use your imagination. They can't take that away from you.

Ian (face lighting up with glee): Oh, and it can be invisible!

At Q-ster's preschool, the kids have designated the carrot and banana from the kitchen set as lightsabers.

Imagination is a better bet!

Love it! Imagination is the best -- and yeah, no one can take it away!
