Recently we have been experiencing light saber madness. Long ago, before Reece could wield a light saber, we bought them for the older boys. Now that Reece is two, he was always stealing their light sabers so he could be just like them. Never mind that we had 4 total (and I only have three boys), two small ones that hook to your pants and two really cool ones that light up and make noise. The first two I mentioned are the only ones they want to use. The light up ones aren’t nearly as cool to them because they do not, I repeat do not, hook on to your pants. They are not enough like the real thing I guess.

Last week I got fed up with the boys fighting over the small light sabers and set off to find a new one for Reece. In my mind I had to get three matching light sabers so they wouldn’t fight over which one belonged to who (believe me that getting the exact same thing for each child saves tons of heartache and headache later). After calling around to a few different Fred Meyers I found that one store had several in stock and I packed up the boys and we went over to pick out new light sabers. I didn’t really need three, I only needed one, but I was trying to honor the afore mentioned tactic of buying matching toys so no one fights.

So here is the kicker, I find 3 blue light sabers, I buy them all. But then the boys point out that each handle is different and they proceed to fight over which one is theirs and which is cooler and what not. I failed. Oh well. Could have been worse.

So this morning Reece runs up to me in just his diaper and makes me hook his light saber on to his “pants.” He just looked so cute. I had to take a picture and share it. Ain’t he somethin’?!

Is that diaper just super huge, or super full? Huh? Love that Reece!

And...I'll take your advice on the matching toys when the time comes...if you say it's better I'll believe it. :-D

That diaper was freshly put on. Cloth diapers tend to be a little bulkier. Matching toys is way better. Unbelievably so!

Oh man! This totally reminds me of my nephews. My sister's sons are 7,4, and 2. I just died laughing. Thanks!
(p.s. I have a feeling light sabers are in my not too decent future) :)
