As you all know we are reading Harry Potter. Watching Sammy starting to get so excited over something that she used to dread, makes me so so so happy! I'm going to use this quote like this. For the longest time, I wouldn't read to Sammy. Not because I don't like to read, on the contrary, I love it. But what I have hated ever since I was a kid was to read out loud, because my learning disabilities always make me stumble. For this, I have always been ashamed. And the fact that I kept something so awesome as reading from Sammy because of my insecurities makes me feel awful. I am so thankful that I have been able to work on myself so that I can now have a blast making up voices and acting out the characters for her. I am showing her that even I flub up reading at times and that it is nothing to be embarrassed by!
