Amidst the worst hive outbreak I have ever seen, I subjected my itchy, swollen, bright pink 5 year old to a melee of children, strollers, and shockingly rude adults at a local Kid's Expo this weekend. He wanted to go. I swear. But, once we had been there for about an hour or so, I could see him overwhelmed and a little irritated at having to stand in forever-long lines for the jumpy things.
Thus, I was guilted in to an insanely expensive purchase of an item that has previously been strictly forbidden in my house:
The dreaded light saber. *sigh* And, as if spending enough money to feed a Haitian village wasn't enough, I had the midget bugging me to make a holder for it.
Finally, after watching him walk around with the 2 1/2 foot plastic sword stuck down the leg of his pants all night, I finally gave in:
The fabric was left over from a hoodie I made him a few months ago. I had some technical issues that were a result of trying to talk on the phone and sew at the same time, but other than that it was done pretty quick.
Somber Jedi face:
One of the cool things about having kids is that I cannot see myself ever making a light saber sheath without a 5 year old in my life. Now, I can market my services at Star Wars conventions nationwide!! :)
