I remembered! I remembered!

May 4, 2012


Happy Birthday to my brother Phil!

There’s some other stuff going on this weekend, but I’m saving it all for tomorrow’s post. What I really want to talk about now is how this year I remembered that May the 4th is Star Wars Day!!

I found out about it last year…. on the 5th, and was very bummed that I didn’t know. So this year I’ve been waiting, trying to remember that it was the day after the Wait Wait taping.

The most important thing was to make sure Lloyd wore his Darth Vader tie to school. He remembered. Shwhew. (That is my sound of relief.) I do not have a picture of him wearing it, dang it.

Today at school lots of people were absent, so I didn’t have any children for nearly an hour. There was enough time to quickly make a couple of signs for the front door.

Parents, I am your sign.

Of course, the ‘Star Wars’ emphasis lost it’s focus later in the day, but there was enough time to train a little boy to learn to draw Darth Vader – a very important life skill, in my opinion.

He traced the dots and we talked about rainbows, triangles and ovals.

So, happy Cinco de Mayo!

    I thought I was being original when I told my kids that the correct response to “May the fourth be with you” should be “And altho with you”

    But it’s all over the internet, dang it.
