What a Jedi's Mommy Does

As I tended to my sleeping Jedi tonight, I realized that a Jedi's mommy:

  • Removes his mass of cloaky, drapey clothing when he's fallen asleep in them on a warm night.

  • Carefully treats those nasty bugs you pick up on strange unknown planets

  • Picks up his light sabers, robes, boots, etc. and puts them away when he's forgotten

  • Levitates the couch to look for lost credits, blasters, and so on.

  • Makes sure the force stays strong by feeding him nutritious food and insisting he stop hopping the galaxy early enough to get a good night's rest.

  • Lets him duel to the death, and sends him back into it even when he gets injured. Jedi have to learn to be tough!

  • Washes the Jedi suit that has been on his body 24/7 for 6 days (except on the occasion she was able to take it off of him while he slept!)

  • Listens to the endless tales of Sith Lords he has defeated, planets he has visited, and amazing feats he has accomplished

  • Teaches him the to be a good Jedi, sometimes the way of peace must be pursued over the way of battle

  • Remembers that what a young Padwan grows up to become is in part determined by how his imagination is handled today
