We are leaving Thursday night for Ohio, or as like to call it the land of the . My other in-laws don't bother me, but my mil drives me . She constantly nags about every thing I or kaylee does. Poor Kaylee can't take a breath without being corrected. The is a school teacher(and I'm constantly reminded of this) and points out that I use incorrect speech. She says since I'm from the south and have a thick southern accent the schools in the south aren't that great. She thinks we're(southerners)are ignorant b/c we say y'all. I don't care what kind of schooling you have if you are around accents you are going to pick it up! It's funny when I go up north and everybody compliments me on my accent, she'll jump right in and start claiming territory."This is my dil. She's from NC.", just takes over my conversation and it almost sounds like taking credit. I can honestly say I will try my da#$est to teach Kaylee to talk with a southern accent ,just to spite her. Wish me luck and hope I don't commit murder .

@ you wanting to teach Kaylee a southern accent just to make her mad...haha! Man, she sounds rough to get along with...that's sad she has to correct you on your grammar & say the schools aren't great She'd rip me apart then I say ya'll sometimes & I'm not from the south I picked it up from a friend of mine in Cali when we lived there {she was from the south} Guess I can't say have a good time...but have a safe trip....we'll have some stories to hear I'm sure
