Initially P thought we should go out to dinner. He asked me to think of a place where we would not go because of SS. There’s a problem with that, because we have yet to refrain from dining in a restaurant because of SS. When you can take your two year old to an Indian restaurant or a sushi restaurant without any concerns about what she can eat, you can pretty much eat anywhere. We are going to try a comedy club. It was our original plan when we had our first date night here. But we made the mistake of going out to dinner first. We were so tired that our date night was us going to bed early. Whatever happened to living la vida loca? We are grateful for the opportunity to have alone time which was non-existent prior to our move.
SS is still in her Star Wars phase and loving every second. Grandpa gave her the original trilogy, an awesome special edition DVD set with an extra DVD with special features for her birthday. SS has yet to watch the special features DVD because she just watches the trilogy every chance she gets. She is starting to get the dialogue down. Scary since she is only allowed to indulge Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. SS still does not get that Luke, Princess Leia and Hans Solo are the stars of the movies. For her it is all about Darth Vader, those three are merely in the background of his greatness. We are concerned about the quality of her dates in the future. On the other hand, we get such a kick out of her (in the words of her preschool teachers) “I like what I like” attitude. Keep it up SS we are behind you all the way.
SS got these Star Wars miniatures for Christmas. She brings them downstairs when she is watching her movies and lines them up. This time on the couch, but sometimes on the TV stand, the floor, around Hulk, the kitchen counter...
Of course she chose the Darth Vader cookie.
Just because she digs him does not mean she has any qualms taking a bite out of him.
Another gift from Grandpa. SS was SO excited when she realized it was Star Wars related, then looked at me and said "I don't get it." I had to explain what was humorous about pugs dressed up. SS immediately commented that the Darth Vader pug was her favorite. No surprise there since she thinks Darth Vader is a super hero, she thinks he is the coolest and worships him. I tried to explain that 99.9% of the population considers him a villain without success. After all, what do I know?
