This week's episode of The Book of Boba Fett seems to have awakened something in Miles. I remember a time not so long ago when Miles was terrified of that lightsaber.
The opportunities the past two years have afforded us to see some of our closest family members have been greatly diminished, which has been difficult for a number of reasons, not the least of which is robbing Miles's aunts, uncles, and grandparents of the chance to see him at various developmental stages. This weekend, however, … Continue reading Year 4, Day 199
In the middle of watching The Phantom Menace, Miles darted off upstairs. He returned a few minutes later with one of mommy's hair towels, then retrieved his lightsaber spoon from the silverware drawer. Only then was he able to cosplay as Liam Neeson's Qui-Gon Jinn. He shoved the spoon in his pocket after seeing Qui-Gon … Continue reading Year 4, Day 183

My son has finally gotten comfortable around lightsabers. TOO comfortable.
I have acquired two artifacts recently that I could not be more thrilled to have in my possession. The first, which I awarded for emerging victorious from a recent podcast competition, is a full-scale replica of Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet. Once used to snap half of all life forms in the universe out of existence, the … Continue reading Year 2, Day 199
We paid a visit to our buddy Jacques down in Rock Hill today, which gave Miles a chance to spent time with his pal Archer, who quickly educated him in the ways of dogs... ...and the Jedi.
