Little Jedi is 4. She really wants to be like mommy and daddy on the computer, but she isn’t quite there yet. Right now she can move around a little and do one attack. And drop us off the edge of Coruscant.
LJ (learning about moving with WASD): W runs FORWARD. S runs BACK. E runs THIS WAY. Q runs THAT WAY. F does NUFFING!
LJ: Momma are you pewing the guys?
(“pewing” is her term for blaster fire or lightsaber-ing.)
Me: That’s right. Momma’s pewing the bad robots.
LJ: Daddy where’s your cat friend?
(Companions are “friends” and Aric Jorgen is a “cat”.)
Joun (husband): Cat man is getting me money.
LJ: Oh. Ok. Mommy where’s Kira?
Me: Kira’s on the ship. My friend is a doctor. He’s right over there.
LJ: Some doctors are boys and some doctors are girls. Daddy has a girl doctor (Elara). Mommy has a boy doctor (Doc).
LJ: Mommy, who’s your friend?
Me: His name is Lord Scourge.
LJ: I don’t like Lord Scourge. He’s gonna bite us.
LJ: Seven-Tee (T7-01) is a good pew-er!
LJ: Seven-Tee is a hero!
LJ: Seven-Tee is R2-D2’s grandpa.
(If you have a better way to explain “droid model predecessor” to a 4-year-old, I’d love to hear it.)
LJ: Daddy where’s your speederbike?
Joun: Daddy put it away…
LJ: I want a speederbike. We buy one at the store?
