I can, with confidence, say that Parker is obsessed with Star Wars! He eats, sleeps, and breathes Star Wars! If he's not naked in the bath tub, then he's wearing a Star Wars shirt. If we make him wear a dress shirt to church, then he will carry the Star Wars shirt to the car with him and then ask to wear it when we pick him up three hours later! I can no longer put dirty shirts in the hamper cause he will just dig them out. He cries out of jealousy if Isaac happens to be wearing one. He knows every character but, his favorite is Darth Vader. This is also a typical answer we get when we ask him a question... Doesn't matter the question, the answer is usually Darth Vader. We were working on Isaac's memory verse for Awanas which says, "Jesus came into the world to save the people from their sins." Well, Parker quickly changed it to, "Jesus came into the world to be Darth Vader." I know... Not sure I should have admitted that one. However, it gets worse. One night he was praying and he went from talking to God right into humming the Star Wars theme song. And then, without skipping a beat, he went right back to praying! He also put his own personal spin on Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? It goes something like this... "Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan, what do you see? I see Yoda looking at me. Yoda, Yoda, what do you see? I see Anakin looking at me!" His night time music of choice... Star Wars soundtrack. Wow! He so badly wants Darth Maul's double lightsaber! As if the six we already have aren't enough! He is constantly trying to use the force by throwing out his hands. Parker IS that little kid in the Volkswagen commercial! Parker is also not the typical kid that sleeps with stuffed animals. No, he sleeps with guns! I am laughing as I write this because the gun that is currently in his hand has been there 24/7 since before Blake's dedication on the 12th!!! I remember being concerned about what people would think when they saw a gun in is hand up on stage at church. Granted it's just a little Rescue Hero one and it's the perfect size for his little hand! He carries it E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E. with him! The bath tub, parks, breakfast, lunch, and dinner... Yes, even to Sunday school, Bible Study Fellowship, and Moppets. Wow! Should I be worried about my child?!
Thankfully he doesn't understand the dark side and instead is being taught the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patients, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control)! He really is a sweet, sweet boy! And all boy he truly is!
Gun in one hand and lightsaber securely attached to the diaper!
