I have a four year old daughter. It was hard to potty train her. I told her that Luke couldn't become a Jedi until he pooped on the potty. She asked, "when he pooped on the potty, then did he get his light saber?" I said, "yes."

One day, I'm working downstairs and I hear, "daddy, daddy, come quick...."

I ran up the stairs and saw her sitting on the toilet. She had successfully pooped. It was a big deal. Without skipping a beat she looked up at me and asked, "so, where is my light saber?"

I have a cool kid.

I hauled ass to Target and bought her a light saber. It's actually pretty cool, it lights up and has sound effects.

Every night I tell her bed time stories that revolve around the star wars universe. being a dad is awesome.
