Let me out, let me out!

I really miss reading aloud to my kids. A lot.

I do try to read for L, since she's not too picky. But her older brother is too impatient to listen to my halting diction.

But sometimes, even L starts to be impatient with my aphasia. Last week she wanted me to read The Three Little Pigs, but it's hard to be convincing when the evil wolf sounds like this:

me:"Little Pig, Little Pig, let me out!"
L:" mean, Let me in."
me:"Or I will puff and I will puff and and I will puff!"
L: " mean, Or I will huff and I will puff or I will blow your house down!"
me:"And then I will eat you!"
L:" mean, I will eat you up!"

Of course, L has her own speech issues, but that's another story...
