Potter Fan? 5 Harry Potter “Spells” For Moms ;-)
In my house, we are “Potterheads”. We have read the books, watched the movies, and attended events. We quote the movies and books in everyday conversation. I personally connect with Mrs. Weasley on a spiritual level.
If I could, I would use magic every day.
So if we muggle (that means NON-wizard) moms had access to magic, what would we choose?
Harry Potter Spells for Moms 😉
Accio (Summoning Spell)
Muggle Mom equivalent of “Bring it to me.” (Great for finding lost things.) I would use this ALL THE TIME. I will be honest, I could not be trusted with this much power. “Accio Coffee”, “Accio wine”,” Accio Clicker”, “Accio Toilet paper.” ( we have all been there)
Expelliarmus (Disarming spell)
Muggle Mom equivalent of “Put that down!”
Trust me, when a kid has something they shouldn’t , this is a handy go to. Trying to wrestle an item from the kung fu grip of your kid would no longer be a problem!
Reparo (Mending Spell)
Muggle Mom equivalent of “Fix it.” No need to call a repairman. Yes, you CAN have nice things!! I have a general rule that if it makes it more than 24 hours in my home without being broken, it is a miracle! I think of all the things I own now held together by duct tape and Krazy Glue. I walk by and see the scars, wishing a bit of Reparo could be in my life.
Capacious Extremis (Undetectable Extension charm)
Imagine walking out of the house with a cute clutch… but it has basically EVERYTHING you need inside. Diapers? Snacks? Change of clothes? Anything is possible and you are not hauling 2 tote bags for a trip to the store! One of my favorite Harry Potter spells for moms, no doubt.
A charmed necklace. Fashion and function! Muggle moms could have all the time they need. Mind you, there are rules. You can only go back a few hours and you can only stay a short period of time. Just enough time to be able to make lunch with the girls while rotating laundry. But still, I might actually get my kid to school on time!
Of course if you are a Potterhead, there are so many other things you might gravitate towards for your own use. The Marauders map, Floo Powder and Port keys, Extendable Ears, House-elves… just to name a few. Trust me this list is only the beginning of a very long conversation. We should grab a butterbeer sometime and discuss.
What would be your big 5? Til our next adventure,
