And I have to say, if the sorting hat were here, sending each of my children to a house at Hogwarts (only you Harry Potter fans will really appreciate this), the baby would be in Slytherin.
Not like Draco Malfoy type Slytherin where she actually turns evil, more of a tow-head, potential for evil, type. I know she doesn't look *evil* per se, but there is some special twinkle in her eye...
My oldest, would be in Gryffindor. Since she is smart, questions authority, has a great sense of right and wrong, and is willing to go off on her own to stand up for what she believes in.
My son, would be in Hufflepuff. Not because I have any clear sense of who a Hufflepuff is in a Harry Potter way, but more because they sound so cuddly and fluffy and lovey, and that is my middle one to the core. But he can still stand up for himself when needed against he-who-shall-not-be-named, which in our house translates to his big sis:)
Clearly, this also means if perchance we ever had a 4th kid, they would be a Ravenclaw, which is awesome, because if the sorting hat, by which I mean God, sent me another Slytherin I don't think I could take it.
Do you ever think of your kids in an unconventional yet still judgmental way? I'd love to hear.
