Here at Manners for Modern Mothers, we’re going to make a change. We’re going to embrace the first person singular. Yes, we plan to sometimes use the pronoun, I.
When we began this blog, we were both reluctant to be too personal, to over-share. Perhaps this disinclination resulted from being brought up with an emphasis on discretion, modesty, and always wearing a slip. Perhaps, we were slow to come around to first person posting because neither of us came of age in the Facebook world. Yet, as our blog has grown, we’ve come to feel like we know you all, dear readers, and we've become more comfortable with the personal pronoun.
Don’t worry, we’re not planning any posts about surgical procedures, nail clipping details, or our latest encounters with noro virus. Instead, we hope to continue to bring you social commentary, humor and an occasional rant, only now it may include the pronoun “I.” So there you have it, the beginning of a new era; an era that I, for one, hope to embrace.
