And he is keenly aware of this fact, though we never point it out to him.
You should have seen the look on his face when he realized younger brother Ollie had caught up to him in height. "Oh NO!", Calvin cried in dismay. "Ollie is as tall as I am!"
While we were driving in the van the other day, Calvin gave an explanation of his short stature:
"I must be getting old...like Yoda...I'm shrinking. That's why I am so little."
I about choked when I heard his shrinking theory.
Take heart dear boy. You have plenty of time to grow. With your 5' 9" father and 5' 2 3/4" mother, you will soon tower over them all.
(Just in case you are wondering, YES, every quarter inch counts round here. With that extra 3/4" on my frame, I pack a formidable figure).
Calvin, you have more steel and courage packed into that body than I ever thought possible!
Ok, just one more Stars Wars picture for now.
I found this drawn on the back of Finn's school work.
It's from Episode II, where Count Dooku defeats Obi-wan and Anakin, leaving them in a bloody heap on the floor. Meanwhile, Yoda fights back and they duke it out by shooting blue lightening from their fingers.
Just a nice little picture to sweeten your dreams.
