I Knew it Would Happen Eventually

Once my friends found out we were moving to Nashville, they would say things like, "Oh, I can't wait to hear the girls and their cute little accents when they get older." My hope was that it wouldn't happen so long as Corey and I continued to speak our bland, Midwestern English at home. I was still nervous with the evil outside influences, namely school.

Last week, I heard Ella on the playground shriek, "Y'ALL NEED TO GIT OUT OF MAH WAAAAY!"

Corey and I looked at each other in shock. I told him, "Oh HELL no. We need to nip that in the bud."

A little bit of me died inside that day.

I can relate. Oliver recently told me something "needs fixed". He's a little yinzer for sure, but he'll talk like one over my dead body.

I was born in the north but I grew up in Tampa.

One time I caught myself saying "ya'll".

One. Time.

Never again.

oh, yeah, the first time one of my girls says 'warsh' or 'yinz', we're going to have a chat.

Good luck. I think you're going to be raising a couple of southern belles!

ciao,
