I'm not a house elf!

crochet black and yellow scarf

Sometimes, as Mothers, we feel like we are maids, or slaves or even house elves from the Harry Potter series.  Well, I don't want to be a house elf.  I'm trying to teach my kids to do chores not just for their own good but for my sanity as well.

Back to Harry Potter,  We've been doing a movie marathon lately.  Our marathons tend to skip several days though, and I'm waiting on my teenagers to let me know when we can watch the next movie.  Meanwhile, I started working on a scarf from the movie genre.

What house do you belong to?  I'm Hufflepuff, I think my youngest daughter is too.  However as we find out in the series, you can basically choose for yourself what house you want to be in, just by talking to the sorting hat.
