Proud to be a Mummy - or is that infantile?

I read this post today from Bored Mommy who is anything but boring. Someone left a bizarre comment about how being a Mommy (or Mummy) rather than a Parent, is somehow undignified and infantile. It's incredible, really.

I am Mummy, okay technically I' m a parent, a mother, but to my girls I'm Mummy and that's just the way it is.

Here's why I'm proud of being Mummy

1. I am proud that I gave birth twice in 18 months
2. I am proud that both me and my baby survived the first birth after a hideous hospital experience
3. I am proud I overcame PND to have a wonderful relationship with the Toddler
4. I am proud I chose a natural birth for the second baby, and that I gave birth in 3 hours with no pain relief (ok I'm also just a little bit smug about that too).
5. I'm proud that my girls are absolutely, unequivocally, completely, utterly and for ever the bright, shining lights of my life.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
