For some bizarre reason Offspring #1's favourite character from Star Wars is Darth Vadar. It took some convincing to get him to understand that Vadar was actually a 'baddie' and he still can't see why people don't like him. That said, his buddy across the road had a Star Wars birthday party on the weekend and, as he was planning to be Annakin, kindly offered some pieces towards a Darth Vadar costume to #1. The creative part of my genetic make-up is somewhat lacking but the Daddy in our family took over and put together a terrific costume. #1 was thrilled and, just quietly, I think his Dad was pretty chuffed too!
