A Mom Blog Social Network
This weekend was a sort of rite of passage for us and our four and half-year old son. On Saturday night he got to stay up late with mom and dad to watch "Star Wars," one of our favorite films of all time! I wasn't much older than my son the first time I saw "Star Wars" in the theater that summer of 1977. It was like no other movie I had ever seen and fell in love with all the characters. I became obsessed, wearing my R2D2 shirt and playing with my "Star Wars" Kenner action figures. I was excited to finally share this movie with my little boy.

Our son is just starting to get into non-animated movies, though "Cars" is still his favorite, along with several other Disney/Pixar classics. Two weekends ago we watched "Yellow Submarine" with him. He liked the music, but thought everyone talked funny and couldn't figure out why that Glove was so mean.
