Why not to watch Star Wars with a 4-year-old.

"Who's that?"
"Jabba The Hutt."
"Does he have a tail?"
"Yes."
"Why?"
"Because he's an alien. Some aliens have tails."
"Why is he an alien?"
"Because he is."
"But why?"
"I don't know."
"Why don't you know?"
"Just watch the movie, son."

...

"Is that an alien too?"
"No."
"What is it?"
"It's a droid."
"What's a droid?"
"It's a robot."
"Is that a droid robot?"
"No, it's a Storm Trooper."
"Why?"

...

"Who's that?"
"Princess Leia."
"Why is she a princess?"
"I reckon because her mother was a queen."
"What's a queen?"
"Uhhhhhh."
"Was Princess Leia in the blue light?"
"Yes."
"Why?"
"Because she was sending Obi-Wan a message. Like a letter."
"Why was she sending Oba-naan a message?"
"Because she needed him."
"Why?"

...

"Why are they fighting?"
"Because a 4-year-old asked them too many questions and they're a little tense."
"Huh?"

...

"What did he just say?"
"'The Force will be with you.'"
"What forest?"
"Not 'forest,' buddy, 'Force.'"
"What forest?"

...

"Are they fighting?"
"Yes."
"Why? ... Mama, why are you drinking from that bottle with the little grey goose on it?"

HA HA...That's awesome. We took Ricky to see that movie "How to tame a dragon" or something like that...He does the same thing.

Then afterwards I was talking to my older boys about THEM sitting next to Ricky next time so they can answer his questions. They told me I do the same thing when dad has me watch his science fiction movies. I couldn't argue, it's true. LOL

Mini-me does this to me when we read. She not only asks questions, she offers commentary on EVERYTHING.
