Nothing 'bout Star Wars!

Andrew took the big girls to see Star Wars VII on opening night (Thursday—a school night!) and they came home and told me all the spoilers to get it out of their system (so the world is safe; I don't mind spoilers and feel only so-so about Star Wars).

Benjamin, unjustly, had to stay home with Mom and the baby even though he's a big boy (he told me so himself) so we played some Star Wars "games" (really a preschool printable from here), which was just as much fun, I'm sure. We spelled some words with Bananagram letters and used some of the cards to play memory and did other super fun things before I sent him to bed (long before his sisters came home).




He's quite obsessed with Star Wars lately. Here he is tonight, fast asleep with Chewbacca in a bucket:


Because the only thing cozier than a beloved stuffed animal is a beloved stuffed animal in a beloved, yet cold and hard, metal bucket. Trust me on this.

A note on the title:

Andrew's family has a little Star Wars song that they sing to, well, Star Wars music. It goes like this:

Star Wars!
Nothing but Star Wars!
Nothing but Star Wars!
Star Wars all day!


Benjamin sings it like this:

Star Wars! 
Nothing 'bout Star Wars!
Nothing 'bout Star Wars!


As if he's singing nothing about Star Wars. And he also switches to his own little made up tune while he continues to sing nothing about Star Wars all day. Because he really can sing this song all day.
