public displays of harry affection

it is not the easiest to go to the malls (after all it is the season) when your five year old persists in throwing herself against any and all Harry Potter ads (ABCfamily was showing the second movie as part of their 25 days of Christmas though I don't know what it had to do with Christmas) and kissing them. Really. Those standee things that shift from one poster to the next? She waits for him to come up and smooches him.

What do you do when your kid's first crush is on someone who isn't real? Oh the heartbreak inevitable in any romantic pursuit. She's five and she's already throwing herself at un-attainable men. And this is just the beginning.

Note to self: start throwing change in the jar for Julia's therapy.

someone told me the other day that they had to post guards at the train station in London where platform 9 3/4 would be because kids were hurting themselves running at the wall full tilt, hoping to get on the Hogwarts Express.

that would be my kid.

I have read every post so far and my fave quote is "She's only five and already throwing herself at unattainable men."
SO funny. So true.
Great start to your blogging career!
