There’s a time in a mother’s life when she realizes what her child is about to see, will cause her child’s head to explode right off its base.
Though when she started reading the Harry Potter book series we questioned whether her maturity would allow for her to finish all seven books, book after book, we let her read on until the end. Like the reading savant she is, Anna read and tested on all 7 Harry Potter books, scoring no less than an 85 on each one’s comprehension test.
I swear I’m not bragging. Much.
My 7-year-old nerdlet can bury even the most knowledgeable Harry Potter-fanatic in a battle of Hogwarts wits. She knows every name, place, and spell Joanne put to paper. She’s been sorted into Ravenclaw in Pottermore; she’s had a mug of Butterbeer; she’s ridden Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey with socks stuffed in her shoes to make her just tall enough.
I know that when we show Anna the video below of the new J.K. Rowling-written “Book of Spells,” her head will self-combust from excitement. Because it’s not just any book; it’s a fancy new technologically advanced superpower of a book using the PS3 Eye and Move controller.
Unfortunately (for my wallet), this is not a sponsored post for PS3, Wonderbook, or Harry Potter-related anything. (And seeing as I’m a Nintendo Brand Ambassador, I’m probably making someone twitch in their britches.) It’s just my own prediction of my kid’s ever-loving nerd-mind being blown to bits.
And my nerd husband will be sitting next to her as happy as a little girl.
