Kylo Ren’s Day Off

IMG_4269Trying to bring order to the galaxy is a hard job. Kylo Ren can make it look easy, but we know that Ben Solo has a softer side. In honor of Star Wars Day (May the 4th), Kylo Ren took some time out of his busy schedule to sit down with St. Louis Dad and talk about some of his favorite hobbies and activities he likes to enjoy when he has some downtime.

St. Louis Dad (dadstl): Mr. Ren, sir, thank you for having me here, let me first start by saying that I can’t help but notice how colorful it is in here.

Kylo Ren (KR): Well, there’s a lot more to me than all of this dark side stuff. People just don’t understand. One of my favorite pieces in this house is right behind me. It’s an original.

IMG_4274dadstl: How about this other picture of the frog?

KR: Chewie gave me that when I was 5. He mumbled something about it being a Dagobah period piece but I’m not sure.

dadstl: So you and Chewie were friends?

KR: (looks silently into the picture of the frog for 15 minutes and then says) Let’s roast marshmallows.

dadstl: With lightsabers?

KR: No you imbecile, in the fireplace.

dadstl: Sounds good to me.

Then it happened. Kylo Ren turned to me and said that he would feel more comfortable if we continued this interview while he completed his night routine. He asked me to follow him into the bathroom so he could get his bath ready.

He was quiet as the tub filled and I honestly felt a little weird with him doing this in front of me. It was even weirder that he kept all of his clothes on while bathing.

If that’s his thing I’m not gonna judge, maybe he is a never nude. I dunno, I didn’t ask.

After bathtime was over, which by the way he wouldn’t answer a single question. He only played with the bubbles. That’s it. So anyways, Kylo Ren wanted me tuck him into bed and tell him a story. This is where I draw the line. I have my own kids, I am their dad. Just because you killed your own father doesn’t mean you get to use me as a replacement. Oops, spoiler alert.


Hasbro provided St. Louis Dad with this awesome Kylo Ren figure. He is large and in charge. The figure also comes with Kylo Ren’s lightsaber which he can hold easily. The larger figures are great for younger kids that want to play with popular characters but may not be ready for the smaller pieces. You can pick up Kylo Ren and many of the other Star Wars characters at stores all over.


My name is Richie and I am a 36 year old father of two. My daughter is nine years old and my son is six. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network security administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
