Mind you don't sniff the broom love.


If you’re a parent or a member of the human race Harry Potter lingo has more than likely become a regular part of your vocabulary. I am relatively certain that any Harry Potter factoid would qualify as a gigantic cross-cultural meme.

Recently Charlie has made me convert my household broom (aka my second car) into variations of the Nimbus 2000. First it was crucial to his survival that he have a Nimbus 2000, then 2001, then 2020, then 3,000, and so on. He seems to think the higher the number the faster it can go. I was hoping he would find the flaw in his logic when old lighting rod (grandma) made her way over this afternoon, but no such luck.

My permanent marker hasn’t seen this much action since the time I tried to label the toys. And I was almost successful then too. In fact I got all the way to P-P-Puzzle before I started talking to the yellow giraffe in the middle of the room. And while I'm starting to feel the inklings of a headache coming on, I'm not talking to any imaginary animals...yet. But, I have a feeling things are about to get really Harry because Charlie just flew into the room asking, "Mom is 1 million greater than 10 thousand?"

PLEASE. SEND. HELP.
