Every parent doesn’t think the day is coming, but oh does it come.
Recently, having a regular conversation with our oldest, the question was asked about seeing the new Star Wars movie.
“Nah, I was never that big into Star Wars.”
Granted he didn’t go around speaking Wookie..is that a thing?….
…..but Star Wars has been a part of his life with the movies (watched many a time), Millenium Falcon Lego Set, and the various toys.
NO LONGER CARED ABOUT STAR WARS??????????
Well, he is 19 and in college.
He has a girlfriend.
As parents, it’s kind of a shock to the system.
“What do you mean you aren’t into it?”
You were just playing with a light saber yesterday, wasn’t it?
You know that moment when a mother with grown children tells the young mom to enjoy it because they will be grown before you know it? Yeah, that’s a thing!

Disclaimer – We are not saying other 19 year olds shouldn’t have an interest in Star Wars. Most of the family is still quite into Star Wars around here.
UPDATE – Girlfriend wanted to go see it so his interest re-emerged. He has now seen the movie!
