Indoctrination

In case all you geeks out there were wondering where we were with the SciFi Indoctrination, you'll be happy to know that the kids watched Star Wars, Episodes IV, V, and VI over Christmas. I also let them watch episodes I, II, and III... let us never speak of THOSE again.

Habtamu pretty much understood what was going on in the movies, or at least didn't ask the same question 900 times like Yordanos did. She really can't understand complex thinking at this point. (C'mon kid, you're like what, SEVEN?) She wanted to know Good or Bad? and Died? So all the movies had live commentary:

"Mommy, good or bad?"
"We don't know yet. Watch the movie."
"Mommy, good or bad?"
"We don't know yet. Watch the movie."
"Mommy, good or bad?"
"WE DON'T KNOW YET. WATCH THE MOVIE."
"Mommy? I mean Daddy? Good or bad?"

"Bad guy died?"
"Yes."
"Bad guy died?"
"Yes."
"Good guy died?"
"Yes."
"Bad guy died?"
"Yes."
"Bad guy died?"
"Yes."
"Good guy died?"
"Yes."

Then we get to the dramatic scene where Darth Vader expires in Luke's arms, and she asks, "Sleeping?" Lee and I looked at her like, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? One of us answered nicely, "No, honey, he died, but he died a good guy."

And here, for your listening pleasure, before she learns English too well, is her attempt to say "Obi Wan Kenobi". (Sorry, the pic is dark... it looked better before I blogged it.)
