Are YOU a Posh Mumsy?

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?

  1. I wish I could be a posh mumsy. I will have to settle for being a follower of PoshMumsy instead. My two year old doesn’t breathe life into me, she sucks the energy out of me and uses it against me when I am at my weakest point. At least she’s cute. (Man, do I say that a lot.) Anyway, thanks for your point of view. I think it may come in handy.

    • Of course Mommyhood isn’t always peaches and cream. We all have those moments where we want to go in a corner, scream, and cry ourselves a river. Then we look at those cute faces and say, “aww…it’s ok, I guess.” Hopefully you can relate to our trying times and find inspiration in the happy moments. 🙂 Again, thanks so much for taking the time out to follow and read our blog!

  2. Greetings, ladies!

    Love this! Very creative and inspirational! OF COURSE, once you become a Mommy, you’re immediately identified as such (a Mommy). However, being a Mommy doesn’t have to equate to being boring, wearing ‘Mom-jeans’, or not having a social life… in other words, you can still be posh (if that’s your thing). So, the ‘Posh Mumsy’ title is perfect and something I can definitely identify with! Is this the start of a playdate group?! If so, count me in!

    Love you ladies!

    • Lindsey hiiiiiii!!!!! Thank you so much for reading our blog! We are definitely in the process of putting together a mommy meet-up, starting a playgroup, and even something for the dads! We’ll keep everyone posted and would love for you and Logan to come!!

      • Oh yes ma’am, I want in on this (playgroup etc.)!! lol Super cute site…I love everything about this. Great job ladies:)

      • Definitely! We’ll do a post when we have everything finalized…can’t wait for it to happen! Thanks so much for the support Michelle 🙂

  3. Love the blog ladies I relate totally and can’t wait to see how other moms like myself navigate through this new era in our lives!

  4. This is perfect for me being as though I had to leave NC A&T once I found out I was pregnant. Since then, I have been able to finish my degree (which I am very proud to say) and have definitely established a good life for me and my 5-year-old minime 🙂 Needless to say, I have not taken on the opportunity to meet other young moms like myself who could serve as guides, inspirations, confidants, etc. for me. I was one who stayed behind the scenes thinking nobody could possibly understand my new life as a mom. Nonetheless, It hasn’t been an easy journet but I have managed to get through every obstacle that has come my way and I look forward to reading stories from other moms. Keep up the great work ladies! This is an awesome site 😉

    • Thank you so much for stopping by to read our blog! Excellent job on receiving your degree and being an awesome mom! Since you are five years into Mommyhood, maybe you can help shed some light on some of the topics we post 🙂 We love hearing from other moms, so please make sure you come back and join in on our discussions!

  5. I love the blogs I have no clue about mommy hood and what to expect. I have just entered my 2nd trimester and I’m so excited about my first child. Of course I am terrified out of my mind *nervous giggle* but I am beyond blessed. I had to leave A&T my junior year because I was diagnosed with Leukemia. My cancer is in remission, the heart failure is healed and now I’m preggo…which the doctor said I would never be able to conceive…here I am, a new mommy to be, beyond excited & blessed… I’m gonna look to these blogs for help…so help me out ladies!!!!!! Lol thanks a lot

    • Wow….AWESOME testimony!!! We will definitely be posting more pregnancy-related posts, baby shower dealings, just mommyhood things in general. If you don’t already have it the book Pregnancy Day by Day and, of course, What to Expect when you are Expecting book and app are daily go-to’s for me during my pregnancy! And try your hardest NOT to google ANYTHING! lol. Thank you so much for all of the support! 🙂 And a HUGE congratulations on entering your second trimester!!

  6. This is an awesome blog ladies!!! Women of color generally don’t have support sites like this, I’m apart of a yoga mommy’s group originating in Silver Spring MD from my prenatal yoga classes, but the group isn’t a group of women I can relate to being stay at home mommies and all. So it’s delightful to see you ladies do your thing on here and offer insightful and inspirational messages and resources. I do consider myself a POSH MUMSY!!! My daughter who will be 2 in Aug is definitely a handful but just to be able to see her smile and laugh, even after she drops the bowl of rice on my freshly vacuumed carpet is worth it:) Thanks you ladies and keep it up I love it:)

    • Awww!! Thank you so much! 🙂 Ooooh pre-natal yoga..how did that work out for you? I want try it but I need real reviews first lol. Ahhh…spilling stuff on the freshly-vacuumed carpet. I know that struggle all too well. My two year old often spills shredded cheese all over mine. Thank you so much for all of your support. We truly appreciate our readers! 🙂

  7. This is an awesome site. Women of color don’t generally have support sites of this sort. I’m apart of a group called yoga mommies originating from a prenatal yoga class I took in Silver Spring MD. The group is great, but I can’t really relate with everyone in the group with me being the only mommie who isn’t a stay at home mom. So to see this site was like a breath of fresh air. I would say that I am a Posh Mumsy!! I have an almost 2 year daughter who’s smile and laugh, even after she’s dropped a bowl of rice on my freshly vacuumed floor, makes it all worth it. Thanks ladies for such a insightful and inspirational site full of resources and encouragement:)

    • Thanks so much! We experienced those same feelings as well. We used that as inspiration behind starting this blog! We hope to meet you and your daughter one day. Be on the look out for our first Mumsy Meet Up!

  8. You two ladies have done such an awesome job! I wouldn’t concider myself a poshmumsy yet, given my peanut isn’t due til DEC. However, I have read your bio’s, posts, blog information and I am encouraged and reassured that life doesn’t stop because you are embarking on a new chapter in life. I look forward to reading more and maybe one day, just one day making a debut as a poshmumsy. But, until then continue doing what you are doing, I forsee great things in your near future!

  9. My daughter Dynasty (3) and I (24) are both posh. (Her more than I) We live in Clinton, MD. I love this website and all the stories takes me back to being pregnant with my little diva! I had a really easy pregnancy except for the HORRIBLE ALL DAY sickness and super strong sense of smell the first top three months! (Glad thats over) But thank you for this website!

    • Hey Tasha! Thanks for the feedback! We would love for you and your daughter to attend our Posh Events! Be on the look out : )

  10. I love your blog. My friend mentioned following you all for inspiration on creating my own blog for my brand, Pampers & Pumps. I enjoyed the baby shower post so I am officially becoming a posh mumsy 👶👠🎀💋
