They Make You So Proud

"I was born here, you know..."

While playing LEGO: Star Wars (which we finally acquired today) with my 5-year-old son:

Me: “Tatooine! That’s the planet where Luke Skywalker grew up.”

Bean: “Yeah. He was born there, he almost died there!”

Me: “…” <laughs>

So proud, I think I shed a tear. A fatherly, geeked-out-Star-Wars-nerd tear, but a tear nonetheless. At least he’s quoting Empire Strikes Back instead of that other garbage. Now I know I’m raising him right!
