A few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to have "the talk" with my boys. They were starting to ask a lot of questions, and I felt like I was just trying to beat around the bush when answering them. After all, who wants to be dishonest with their children? I know, you're probably thinking, "aren't your kids a little young for that?" But even their church friends were starting to talk about it -- and I'd rather have them hear it from their own dad than from someone else.
I even bought a special book to make it easier to explain. So, Saturday before last, I sat them down and decided to tell them.
Yes, I decided to tell them that Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader are the same person.
Ben: "Daddy, why does Padme die?"
Dad: "Um . . . because she's sad???"
