I have many, many fears. Snakes, burglars, riding the Titan at Six Flags and most of all…gulp…having regular children. One day Mike and I want kids and it is my fervent prayer that they are a bit weird, overly intelligent, bookish, musical and uncoordinated enough that I never have to sit through a soccer game. The thought of having a child who is properly socially adjusted and wants to go out for the varsity football team or even worse- cheerleader makes me lose sleep at night. As a child, I played basketball for 5 years without ever scoring and last year Mike chose to build a computer program that told him who to pick for his fantasy football team rather than learning anything about football so we really have the odds stacked in our favour for having some spectacularly interesting children.
But I like to plan ahead and what better way to encourage our kids to let their nerd flag fly than these:
Star Wars cookie cutters!! Sugary treats + nerd memorabilia = I will be the best mom ever! I can just imagine a tiny little boy who looks a lot like running up to me and saying “love Star Wars cookies I do*” before running away to finish defragmentinging his hard drive. I think I need to get them now because you can never be too prepared and I also know a 30-year-old who would think that Star Wars cookies are pretty cool too!
