Ok, so today is a pretty big day. Jabba and I finished watching Episode 6 (well, ok, he still has like a minute to go, but he has seen the part where Vader helps Luke, and it make Jabba feel good about Vader, especially since all he does for the last two movies is choke people and go on about his obsession with Luke Skywalker.) In his relentlessness and his obsession, I can see how Anakin Skywalker is the Darth Vader of the second (original) trilogy – he is more powerful than even the emporer, and, in a sad way, betrays the emperor in the same manner that I imagine he betrays Obi Wan.
Well, we’ll see.
Jabba also got interviewed by someone with the school district to see if he is a gifted child. I know he is gifted even if they don’t agree, but I spoke with his teacher who spoke with the interviewer and his teacher feels that there is a strong chance he’ll be selected to run with the gifted crowd.
I dug at Jabba after school to see what they said about him and what kinds of questions they asked him, he said that the lady told him he was a genius and that he got all the questions right. If she didn’t say that, it wouldn’t be the first time that the boy has told me something just because I wanted to hear it. It also wouldn’t shock me if it was the truth 🙂
As a parent, I always want to think your kids are special, and I am sometimes worried that my perception of my child’s brilliance is skewed.
It just occured to me that I am always bragging about Sukie and Jabba 🙂 I guess I just really love my family. In fact, now that I think about it, I have positive things to say about everyone in my family, even my extended families.
Wow, I guess everyone is awesome. By reading this, your awesome stat jumped 5 points! You celebrate with root beer floats.
