Sprite is pretty good about remembering her manners. Today she was in the pool and when she bent over she tooted or "tooped" as she calls it. I said "What do you say?" She looked at me with this big smile on her face and said "Thank you!"
I’m a northern girl who was temporarily transplanted in the deep south, where sushi is still called bait. You’ll notice that my blog is titled after the movie ‘Sweet Home Alabama.’ It combines my love for the movie and the southern colloquialisms therein and the fact that Alabama was Home Sweet Home-when I started this blog! I poke fun at the south and the state of Alabama but it’s all in good fun so don't go gittin yer gussie up-it’s how I coped! I also poke fun at my hometown- it was once in the Guiness Book of World Records for having the most bars per square capita. And no, I did not have my baby in a bar! But it sure was an interesting journey transitioning from career woman to stay-at-home Mommy to two strong-willed young’uns. Most days I didn’t know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt! Today, we're back in NC where I am once again trying to find the balance between career woman and stay-at-home Mommy. You’re welcome to come along on this crazy journey but just be sure to bring your earplugs and bug nets; my kids are loud and the bugs are fierce. Or is it my kids are fierce and the bugs are loud? ;)
