I've been short on time lately, too short to even comment on my reader, but hopefully things should pick up.
And of course, I had to Spin for Halloween.
The Kindergarten block in Sprite's school held a Storybook Character Parade last Friday and when I asked Sprite what character she wanted to be, her immediate response was "Hermione Granger!"
I sent a note to her teacher since I didn't know if they were limiting the characters to easy readers like Humpty Dumpty and Cinderella, but she gladly gave the go ahead and wouldn't you know it, Sprite was the only Hermione in the entire parade.
The night before, we washed and braided multiple sections of her hair to repeat the frizzy waves her character wore so proudly in "The Sorcerer's Stone".
The other kids asked repeatedly who she was while the teachers and students lining the halls to watch the younger set march past and take notes on the ones they recognized, called out her secret identity as she walked with her wand and book in hand, practicing her "swish and flick".
Careful, or she'll cast a spell on YOU.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
