Star Wars

First Star Wars Viewing

This weekend we finally let Owen watch Star Wars. We'd been holding out, knowing that as soon as he saw it we'd be in for months of obsession with light sabers and blasters, but when he started coming home with stories from the playground about how Luke Skywalker turned into Darth Vader, we decided it was time. Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw, so of course I was excited to watch it with Owen. It was pretty special watching it together, but then I couldn't help but be a little jealous when after seeing Star Wars the first time, Owen got to see The Empire Strikes Back the very next day, and he can now watch them again and again at home. I had to wait three years for Empire, and we never did get our own copy of Star Wars for the Betamax. Kids sure are lucky these days...

Remember your mom let you see Star Wars when you were 2 1/2 not 4 1/2. Of course she didn't save all those Star Wars action figures. Darn.
