I have shared my love for Doctor Who with my children but I also shared the story of Harry Potter with them as well. I don't shy away about talking about life or death with my children because both have been a part of my existence and I am sharing my whole self with them. I am also teaching them about my mother, not that I have much to go on but I teach them that she is their grandmother and she loves them and she is in heaven loving them still. Little things like that.
Although we haven't delved into the HP books just yet (I will be soon though), they all love the films. Especially my girl. She just loves Harry and she likes seeing the friendships on screen and the fight for good against evil. When she asked for an HP party, how could I say no?
For the first time ever we held a birthday party at a party place and so I brought in some HP things I wanted her to have. Since she is so little I didn't go too nuts with the decorations and such but oh boy if one of the boys ever wants an HP when they are older-watch out-I will go bonkers!
Her party was the day of her actual birthday (August 27th) and I decided to dress up for the event. She asked me to be Professor McGonagall. So of course I scored myself a witch's hat online and thought this dress would look great with it.

here and the favors were a put together but they are a HP pencil and notebook inside a muslin bag.
