Why Mummy / Parenting Labels Needs To Get In The Bin

2nd August 2018
Trying To Look Normal On 2 Hours Sleep - My thoughts on Mummy labels

Mummy makeover, tummy, squad, blog … Into the bin. “Give Mummy a cuddle” is perfectly acceptable in my book (with the caveat that the baby must be in room and the one being offered said cuddle). “Hello Mummy” when directed at me as a greeting from anyone besides my baby (and the occasional slip up from my tired Husband) is creepy, annoying and slightly reductionist. After all before this exciting new chapter in my life, I was never greeted as ‘hello front-end web developer’; Or woman / wife / sister / daughter … You get the idea.
