the importance of being Harry

#1 son is currently in the front yard, in the twilight, loudly being Harry Potter.  I sent him out to get the mail from the letterbox and I guess he encountered a couple of Dementors on the way.  :~D 
 
He and son#3 were playing HP in front the PS2 eyetoy and son#1 took it upon himself to put a red biro scar on his forehead, scrounged his old glasses (which are very Harry Potter-like) out of a cupboard, a dressing gown for robes, and is out there right now shouting "Expecto Patronum" at the top of his lungs.  I can hear him in here, so I'm sure all the neighbours are sharing the joy as well.  :~)
#1 son has Down syndrome and his speech is rather poor, so his Expecto Patronum sounds more like "PeckoRownum!", which is pretty amusing to say the least, but I can't fault his enthusiasm!

That is simply an adorable image. Make believe is so important for all of us and moments of abandoned joy like that are precious.

Yes, he can be wonderfully uninhibited sometimes and he has a wicked sense of humour. I always said he'd be a stand-up comedian if he could TALK. :~P
He was doing deadly accurate Trelawny impressions for us at the dinner table tonight; had us in fits of laughter.
