Learning to Read

I have previously mentioned my daughter’s funny British accent. But now we seem to be having problems with MY accent. Moozles is five and a half and in Year One at school. In the past year and a half, I have been the one helping her with her reading. But now it seems my accent is causing trouble. The particular letter giving us grief is A. I pronounce a soft A like an American while British people pronounce a soft A as AWH.

Being a Stay-At-Home-Mum, I feel like it’s my duty to help with homework and projects. But I am feeling like my help is detrimental. So I will have to hand the reading baton to Husband. Oh the shame. *hangs head low*. I guess I could learn how to pronounce certain words differently, but I feel it’s too late for me to learn a new language. Alas.
