Moving Movie

Last night we finished exposing our kids to the complete "Star Wars" saga, except that the way they experienced it was far different from the way we adults did. They watched episodes 1-6 in order, which means, there were actually surprises. The big surprise was that Darth Vader turned back from the "Dark Side" and destroyed the Emperor, saving his son.

It was an emotional high point for all of us, but Mia especially must have been really affected. At least 10 minutes after we had put away the DVD and turned the lights back on she turned to me and said, "Daddy, [referring to the scene above] when that happened it made me cry." I replied, "Yeah, it was very emotional for me too, sweety." Then she said, "And Daddy, when I think about it now it still makes me cry." Then she burst into tears.
