The Dementor's Friend

This morning Big was playing with his stuffed dinosaur when Bud ran up to him trying to scare him by pretending his hooded sweatshirt was a Dementor. I found it vaguely unsettling, but Big, not having read the Harry Potter books, was completely unfazed. 


Bud: I'm going to give you a kiss!


Big: I don't want a kiss. Do you have a friend?


Bud: Dementors don't have friends.


Big: Everyone has a friend. 


This brought to my mind a picture of two Dementors meeting for a drink after a long hard day sucking the life out of people. Or maybe one Dementor pushing another on the swing at a local park. 


The boys then went on their merry way, dinosaur and Dementor playing together. The dinosaur roaring and the Dementor sucking the life out of people. Best friends forever.

That's exactly my sentiments. Too funny! It made me laugh and D&C enjoyed it too as I shared with them.

Awesome. Has Bud read more of the books, or just the first 3 still? We haven't started book 3 yet, but I'm picking up movie 2 from the library today, so it shouldn't be long.

I haven't given him permission to read the 4th on yet. I think I'll tell him tomorrow that he can. It took him about a week of reading off and on to read the first 3, I wonder how quickly he'll blow through the rest.

I was going to take a longer break between 3 and 4--I was thinking not until spring break or so, at least. Trying to remember when we introduced them to Newton, although of course Newton and the Wizard are very different kids.

I was going to wait, but since I'm not showing him the movies his internal vision of what's happening is only fueled by his imagination (which hasn't been exposed to much). I'm still debating, I guess.
