NERD MAMAS! It’s the First Day of Hogwarts 19 Years Later
Today is September 1st, 2017. Meaning that it is the day that Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny sent their kids off to Hogwarts “19 Years Later.” Harry Potter and many other literary and movie characters have been a huge impact on my life and the lives of many men and women, now mothers and fathers. Whilst I did not name one of my offspring inspired by Harry Potter or it’s other characters MANY of the children in school this year bare Potter inspired names. Seeing our favorite characters become parents’ too, Deathly Hallows‘s finale showcased an aged Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley, ushering their children (James, Albus and Lily) into the famous Platform Nine and Three-Quarters. As Harry’s second son, Albus had come of age to attend Hogwarts in 2017, so the franchise’s favorite trio head to King’s Cross to bid him goodbye and provide him with a few tips and tricks to enter his dream house, Gryffindor.
Albus: “What if i’m in Slytherin?”
Harry: “Albus Severus, you were named for two headmaster of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.”
Albus: “But jusy say… “
Harry: ” …then Slytherin house will have gained an excellent student, won’t it? It doesn’t matter to us, Al. But if it matters to you, you’ll be able to choose Gryffindor over Slytherin. The Sorting Hat takes your choice into account.
Harry: “It did for me.”
As a fan, it’s exciting to know that today is officially the day where this conversation happens. As fans may already know, September 1st is also a hugely important day in Hogwarts history for other reasons. So we could think of no better way to celebrate September 1st than with some Harry Potter inspired babies from our Motherhood Society endorsed professional photographers!
