This year, I am so lucky to have a baby geek join my hubs and I for Star Wars Day. Even though he’s only 10 months old and probably won’t remember, I plan on be a responsible parent and putting A New Hope on TV for the family to enjoy. As I am planning out our day, I started to question whether my baby would be a Jedi or Sith.
My hubs LOOOOOOVES Star Wars, but he chose a different path…. apparently I am “rebel scum.” Luckily our love is stronger than the Force so we can look past our differences. Also we totally create balance which is an imperative and true to the canon of the movies. So I’m okay with being married to a Sith, but what should be the fate our child?
Now I start to question the path yet to be decided for my little one. Do I let him explore both? Do I explain the difference and push him in one direction? Parenting is hard. So I’ve decided to create a list of pros and cons for both Jedi and Sith so that when he’s older, at least I have a place to start. This is seriously harder than preparing for the inevitable “where do babies come from?” question.
- Obviously choosing the “good guys” is way better, because they always triumph.
- The Jedi team has Yoda and Obi Wan and Samuel L. Jackson; it’s doesn’t get more bad-ass than that.
- You can move space crafts with your MIND! Imagine how much easier cleaning your room would be.
- You’re father is already a bad guy, and you may or may not lose a hand.
- If you get a sister, there might be some embarrassing moments later on in life.
- It’s hard work and could be lonely at times.
- Sith seem to have way cooler weapons and battle moves.
- I’ve heard they have cookies.
- “Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.”
- Your family will turn against you.
- When you grow old you’ll be the absolutely ugliest, wrinkliest old man.
- It’s hard work and could be lonely at times.
This is a tough one. And ya know what? Either way, I’ll just completely love him forever. As long as he loves Star Wars like we do.

I was asked as fourth chair on one of my all-time favorite podcasts Nerd Lunch!! Along with host CT and Pax, I was joined with Shawn from Branded in the 80s to talk about our summer #NerdToDos. We talked about summer movies, TV, trips (and some very similar nerd paths) and all the summer eating we’re looking forward to. And of course, all hilarities ensue.
Check out the full episode HERE and subscribe to this fantastic podcast!
Esty shop ChikoCraft makes the tiniest and most adorable necklaces, like these spaceship alien kitties! These furry explorers only measure about an inch and a half, made from resin and polymer clay that’s fired with a high fire glaze.
“These two alien cats are competing to gather information on humans! Help these extraterrestrial critters learn about life on Earth!”
Seriously just stop it. I need these.

Guys, Todrick Hall is one of the best musical Youtubers I have ever seen. He frequently remakes iconic songs into amazing pardodies with the usual subject about Disney characters. His latest is absolutely my favorite. He uses classic songs from the 90s and Disney songs for this hilarious mash-up video with the famed Shoshana Bean. Check it out!

I’m more emotional about this trailer and the upcoming movie now. This is such an important ongoing “trilogy” for me and my family and seeing Han next to Chewie saying “We’re Home”… I just lost it.
Watch it. Have the feels. Let’s Celebrate!
