Gone are the days of her mother and I picking out her Halloween costumes, a clear indication of just how quickly she's growing up on us. While part of me is sad about letting go another aspect of the parenting journey, there's a larger part of me fascinated by her creativity and imagination. There's something magical about watching her become her own person. Smart. Determined. Never afraid to say what's on her mind. Traits she shares with Hermione Granger, no doubt.

Included in the many things that define her is now the title of Big Sister, a revelation I've yet to make in this little online space of mine, but it's true. A screaming Mandrake from the world of Hogwarts and the pages of Harry Potter, but a squishy little brother within the walls of our home. Some will tell you that magic isn't real, but when I look at these two - my daughter and my son - there's nothing else that describes it. Magical, indeed.
