What is a Posh Mumsy? Let’s break this down.
Before becoming “The Mommies formerly known as Kacey or Ericka” we had our own identities. People actually greeted us and asked us “How are you?” instead of, “Where’s the baby??” We weren’t just Zoë’s Mommy or Aria’s Mother and we didn’t have toddlers clinging to our legs, or diapers, wipes, and pacifiers, stashed in every nook and cranny. In fact, we were worldly travelers, socialites, and fashionistas with big dreams, goals, and the world at our fingertips. Any of this sounding familiar to the mommies? To say the least, we were Posh Women.
Posh /päSH/ – Elegant or stylishly luxurious
Then, real life hits us. “I’m Pregnant?!? I’m Pregnant?? I’m Pregnant!!” Most people tend to think that once you become a mom your life just kind of ends, you let yourself go, you wear moo-moos, and fall into this black hole of no fun. Hence, Mumsy.
Mumsy /ˈmʌmzi/ giving an impression of dull domesticity; dowdy or unfashionable
Those thoughts and stereotypes couldn’t be any further from the truth. People who believe those speculations have, obviously, never been a mom. Children are not an obstacle, they breathe new life into yours and help us to see, feel, and experience things that you wouldn’t outside of parenthood. As women in our twenties, the prime of life, we are establishing ourselves, achieving goals, and being effortlessly chic all while being awesome moms. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds?
With all this said, Are YOU a Posh Mumsy?
