First off, a little about me…
I’m am happily married with three children; we hope to eventually make that five children, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens! We homeschool and it’s really just a way of life for us. We enjoy it but it’s a lot of planning for me, because I am stubborn and refuse to buy a boxed curriculum – haha. We live just south of Atlanta, Georgia in a home far too small for our growing family, but it keeps us “together”. 😉
Oh! Did I mention I am Harry Potter fan?! Well, not the books. No, sadly I’ve only watched the movies, but maybe one day I’ll get around to reading the outstanding novels. Anyway, I love the movies (mostly), and I thought it’d be fun to put myself in the story, so to speak, and choose some powers that I’d use if I had them.
As much as I love being a stay at home mom and homeschooling and all that, there are some days I’d love to cast a spell and change things!
For example, at 2pm or so each day, I’d love to make a potion with this and that plus one of Samuel’s little two year-old’s hairs and POOF! I’d get to be him and take a nap! Right?! Skip additional school lessons, and dinner prep. Naptime, it is!
And what about Hermoine’s spell to be in more than one place at once? I could SOO use that one! I would be taking a constant shower, as well as watching Downton Abbey and writing blog posts. And then, of course, there’d be the me that does the laundry, teaching and cooking. We’d “all” be happy.
Harry got treated for a broken (well, dissolved really) arm; he had to have a new one grown for him! Wouldn’t a magic boo-boo fixer spell be amazing to have as a mother?! Oh, it would be great to be able treat cuts, bumps, and even breaks. Oh well, guess we’ll have to stick with kisses and bandaids.
What about a spell to make junk food healthy? That would be ideal. Junk food is cheaper, more convenient and – come on, YUMMY! But, we all know it’s terrible for the body, so we’ll just flick the wrist while holding our wand and Voila! a healthy Big Mac. Are you with me?
And lastly, I’d love to be able to do what Voldemort did and place pieces of my soul in different things (I believe he called them horcruxes?) Yeah – Oh wait. I’ve already done that! My husband Stephen definitely has part of me, and our three children do too. Well, I guess that’s a magical power we all have, even if we are only muggles. ;

Reblogged this on Atlantamomofthree and commented:
Come read my guest post about the desire to use some magic in my life! Or maybe I already do? 😉 You be the judge!

Oh I’d totally love to have magical powers! Even if it was just the ability to flick my wrist and have the dishes do themselves… or maybe the clothes to fold and hang themselves up! I can handle almost everything else; however, it’s the boring tasks that are the hardest! Of course, there are times that the only uninterrupted TV time I get is if I’m folding laundry… Mr. T knows to stay way or else I make him help! It’s his underwear – don’t you think he should?!? 🙂

LOL, I would LOVE to flick my wrist and the dishes to be done! That is my least favorite job. haha

Mine would be putting laundry away. Dishes in a close second

I’ve been ruminating on a washer/dryer combo that instantly switches to drying after washing then runs an iron cycle and folding robot arms. I haven’t worked out the putting away/hanging up part 🙂

Oh sign me up for that!

Haha! That sounds awesome! Let me know when you’ve perfected it. As it is now, I just skip ironing all together! 🙄 Ok, I do it…like 3 times a year. Seriously. lol

I never iron either and rather just never wear the clothes that should be ironed 🙂

I still like to close my eyes and cross my fingers before I open the dryer – maybe this is the day where the law of averages caught up with me and all of the clothes folded themselves! 🙂

I’d like to have J K Rowling-ish powers and write a super-successful series of children’s books. Some make-junk-food-yummy magic wouldn’t go amiss, either!

Haha! Good one! She is quite the author. 😀
