When you have a huge Harry Potter fan in the house and she comes to you and says “Mommy, this year I would be able to go to Hogwarts because I am turning 11”, you start thinking on how to make it happen.
While I knew a trip to Harry Potter land was out of the question this year I thought I could try to bring some Harry Potter love to her.
We’ve never done a sleep over. This year we thought we’d give it a go and had 3 other girls over for a slumber party. It was epic, and they all had a blast.
I really enjoyed having a smaller party with just a few girls. If I could convince this kid to do a small sleep over every year for her birthday, I’d be happy!
