My Son and the AT-AT.

So... remember how I discovered the other day that there was a vintage Star Wars AT-AT toy living in the woods out back of our house? Well... I posted this image on Instagram last night:


Because... YOU GUYS I GOT HIM TO COME INSIIIIIDE!!! And well... it didn't take long for my 5 year-old to discover him the next morning. 


Wasn't sure I wanted my son kissing the AT-AT, as he's pretty filthy... but I didn't freak out and stop him. It was funny seeing the both of them so immediately start playing. The AT-AT took to my son immediately, and vice versa.


The AT-AT kept trying to lick him. And since my son is INSANELY ticklish... this went over about as well as you'd think:


They played like this for almost an hour.


Rompin' and wrestlin'. 


I have no idea what is even happening here. But I know they were having a TON of fun. 


All I could hear was insane giggling and little metallic snuffling noises. 


The AT-AT just seemed genuinely bewildered as to where my son had disappeared off to. 


Scaled that kid like he was a mountain. 


And then, as fast as it had begun, they were asleep. 


They were seriously tuckered out. 


So... I let them sleep.

I've got a lot to think about. If we're going to keep this thing around, we're going to have to put some serious work in, let me tell you. First of all, as I mentioned, he's filthy. He stinks. My son didn't seem to mind, but he's going to need a serious bath for any long-term conditions. Probably need a visit to the vet... or the mechanic maybe.

I also need to find some way to tell my wife about it... Ahhh... heh.
