Today, someone at work said I was a Yummy Mummy. I know this was mean to be a compliment, but am I the only one who just doesn’t get it?! Cake is yummy.
I don’t remember ever being described as ‘yummy’ before I gave birth, so what makes me ‘yummy’ now?
I am not edible; and to be honest, I don’t even look that tasty.
Definition (according to Urban Dictionary, taken with a pinch of salt!) :
An attractive, healthy, and very sexy mother! Usually a young woman or sometimes a really gorgeous and hot middle aged mother. Yummy mummies usually wear trendy clothes, have great hairstyles and always look fabulous.
Not me in the slightest! I don’t even know what trendy clothes are and my hair is normally greasy and pulled back into a messy bun (not the super chic type, the I-look-like-I’ve-been-dragged-through a bush type). And in all honestly, I can’t say I have once looked ‘fabulous’ since giving birth almost two years ago!
I think it was mainly because today I am wearing a dress opposed to my usual trouser and blazer combo (I’ll admit it, I’m so behind on washing, nothing else suitable for work is clean!). Is this the catalyst? Wearing a more traditionally feminine outfit makes me look yummy. Apparently.
Not only that, it wasn’t even said to me by a colleague I would consider myself close to. What makes someone think its ok to comment on the way I look, dress etc., when on a standard day, I can’t even guarantee I will get a ‘Hello’ from them? Office etiquette baffles me.
