Coming of Age...

Our household has a "coming of age" tradition.

And since my sweet #2 just had a birthday (more to come on that in a post tomorrow), she achieved the next step of her "coming of age".

In our house, the Harry Potter series is something you have to wait for. You may read the first book at age 9, the second at age 10, and then depending on maturity levels you either read the next one in 6 months, or at your next bday. So #2 was given book #4--The Goblet of Fire and the movie for her 11th birthday.
It's amazing how something as simple as a book, can be so looked forward to.  Part of me thinks it's not just the book or the series, but instead acknowledgement from mom and dad that the child is now officially more mature.
Either way, she was thrilled!

**On a side note, she also received a Ripstik...or a mustache...I can't tell which.

  1. YAY! I can't wait to talk with her about the book! I love that you have this tradition with your children, even though it makes me have to watch everything I say Potter-related in front of them. lol Love y'all.
