It's the day half the world's been waiting for: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is out, and kids and adults everywhere are holed up in beds, on couches, and in sunny corners reveling in their last few hours at Hogwarts with Harry and company. My son is still a bit too young to read Harry Potter (he's busy devouring the Goosebumps series by R. L. Stine), but I so look forward to sharing those stories with him someday. I feel like he's got a treasure in his future — the full Harry Potter series, unread, totally new. In fact, all the Harry Potter movies are off limits in our house until he's read the books…I want nothing to get in the way of the magical world that leaps from those pages.
My kids and I were on a plane last night, so no Harry Potter parties for us. But Dana at Mombian's in the spirit! See: Parent Hex: Harry Potter Spells for Parents. (She gets the award for the First Parent Hacks Pun.)
What about you? Are you lost in Potter-mania?
