Southern manners.

Being from the South means...

I like sweet tea.

I like collards (this is a new one though).

Butter is the main ingredient in every recipe.

I say y'all.

I sometimes say ain't... even if I'm not suppose to.

I'm related to just about everyone.

I like to be barefoot.

I could eat grits for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Try shrimp and grits and you will know why I love them so much.)

I wear a wife-beater with a rust stain but only when I am barefoot with a baby on my hip and I'm beating Ryan outside in the front yard with the frying pan... with a cigarette hanging out of my mouth and sponge curlers in my hair.

Ok, that last one was a bit extreme.


But extreme. Did you think I was serious?? BE SERIOUS!

Some people make fun of Southerners (Refer to the above wife-beating comment above).

I'm here to tell you... we might be slow talkers but we have manners.

We may say ain't and our two year olds may say frawg instead of frog but we have manners.

Caroline has gotten into a habit of saying "yeah".

I hate this response.

It is somewhat disrespectful.

So, Caroline is now saying "yes ma'am" and "yes sir".

It sounds so much better and is so much more respectful of your elders.

Growing up in the South will do this to you.

Ma'am and sir are a part of your everyday vocabulary.

However, don't forget that she still says FRAWG!
