Zoe and Miles are taking acting classes. They are learning how to take commercials and doing a lot of tongue twisters. Zoe is really good at the tongue twisters, after her class today she told me two different ones. I tried doing one of them and every time I messed it up.
Red Leather Yellow Leather
Every time I tried to say it more than once I ended up saying
Red Leather Yellow Leather Red Yellther.
I’m pretty excited for them, the biggest outcome for them is that they will have a bigger self esteem, have confidence and feel more comfortable in front of people. Neither Andrew or I are very good at being in a crowd. It’s taken me a lot of years of blogging, forcing myself to put myself out there. I feel I’m finally ready to do speaking engagements. At my sister’s wedding, The DJ put me in charge of the toasts and it was a room full of 150 people. It’s the first time I wasn’t nervous and I’m 33 years old. Giving my kids tools to have more confidence in conquering the world gives me great joy.
