Those Roots Run Deep



{At the playground, another mom introduces her son to us...}

Her: This is Henry. He's almost 2.5y.

Me: Hi, Henry! This is MC; she's 20m. MC has a cousin named Henry, but he's a big kid - 7 years old.

Her: Oh, does he live here?

Me: No, he lives in Dallas.

Her: Are you from Texas?

Me: No, I grew up in Louisiana.

Her: I knew that your accent is from the Deep South, but I just couldn't place it!

Me: Ha! And we've lived here for over 10 years, so you can just imagine how thick it used to be!
