Yummy Mummy

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.

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.
