Mum's Not the Word - Call Me Mommy!

I have lived in England for almost eight years. I embrace and use

British English in my daily life but I don’t have a British accent.



I’m not one of those Americans that attempt to affect a British

accent, but instead sound scary and frankly ridiculous. I’m also not

naturally susceptible to accents. Yes, my intonation has changed and I

say isn’t it and doesn’t it rather than ask a question

Due Date Tomorrow but No News Yet....

I just finished my second cup of raspberry leaf tea for the day. I read about its uterine stimulating qualities in one of my pregnancy updates and kept meaning to buy some. I didn’t get around to it until earlier this week, so hopefully I’m not too late to reap its supposed rewards!
