If you’re a giant nerd like me, you’re probably hoping that some time right before your kid’s eleventh birthday, he or she will be receiving that super-special letter inviting them to Hogwarts. Alas, it’s too late for my 12-year-old twins, but hope springs eternal for my 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son.
Even if you’re not a huge fan of Harry Potter, you may have noticed certain things your baby, toddler, or child does that are just mystifying. Like, how exactly do they get the bathroom quite that disgusting? Answer: magic. Dark, evil magic.
And you know how your kid basically tortures that cat with love and yet the cat has not killed her (yet)? Also magic. For example, my friend Lydia from Rants from Mommyland has a little girl, “Mini,” who she often refers to as a Cupcake Baked by the Devil. Mini loves their cat a lot and wonders why the cat is so angry. I think a letter from Hogwarts will explain quite a bit about Mini. (Oh, and good luck when she’s sorted into houses, Lydia.)
Take a look and see if magic might explain a lot about your child, too!
