Not The Jedi Way

My youngest son has a new phrase that he's taken to saying, which I've given away via the title of this post.

Yes, the little play-actor walks about the house, and whenever something doesn't fit 100% into his plan, then it's "not the Jedi way."

He used it against his elder brother when said brother would not give up the toy he wanted to play with.

He used it against me when I made him eat his vegetables.

He even used it against the cat when she was laying on his Thomas couch.

Of course, the usage which I personally found the most humorous, was when he used it against my Beloved Wife. She of course, was not amused at the situation.

What had happened was that it was her morning to sleep in (we trade off mornings on getting up with our little Morning People). As it was a weekend, that meant she was actually able to sleep until 8:30 or thereabouts.

But all too soon--for the wife at least--it was time for her to get up and out of the bed, as we had things to do that day.

So of course, being the loving, and perfect husband that I am, I sicked the kids on her.

There I was, standing in the doorway--well out of arm's reach--as our children bounced on the bed, attempting to rouse my beautiful bride.

She of course, wanted nothing to do with this. And there, amidst the pleas and cajoling, and the "But Mom, it's time to get up!" was my youngest son, who was happily shaking his mom's shoulder.

The he pauses, and straightens up slightly, and declares in a loud voice, "Mommy, time to get up."

To which my wife replies something along the lines of, "not just yet."

So my son, then frowns, and says his line: "But Mommy, that's not the Jedi way."

As I said, I was amused.

As I said, my wife was less than. At least right at that particular moment.

Regardless, I did find a new toy online: The Hero Factory. It's been around for a while, I'm sure, but it's new to me, and I had to play with it.

The thing that amused me the most is the Title it gave the comic after I finished generating my "Hero." Apparently, I'm "The Talented FOUR EYED JEDI" -- one must love it.
