Every Friday night, I turn from Working Mummy to just Mummy for a whole weekend.
Over the past few weeks, it has become increasingly obvious that I have 3 ‘faces.’
FACE 1 – Working Mummy
Working Mummy is smart. Working Mummy is serious and sensible, within reason. I have responsibility and targets to hit. The Mummy part has to take a back seat as best it can. Working Mummy can be seen in her office, tapping away on her laptop, and avoiding phone calls from people wanting to sell her things.
FACE 2 – Mummy
Mummy is so casual that the next stage down is pyjamas. I live in leggings and long tops, with ballet pumps at the weekend. My hair is usually scraped back in to a pony tail. I never wear make up at the weekend when I am running errands or chilling out in the house. Mummy can be found at swimming lessons, picking up the food shop and down the park.
FACE 3 – The Public Mummy (which can also sometimes be used when out in the evening)
Public Mummy is in between Mummy and Working Mummy. Public Mummy is used for when we visit a place with lots of people where I potentially could bump in to someone I know. Sometimes I use Public Mummy when I catch up with my friends for coffee or for lunch. Public Mummy can be seen hanging out in the coffee shop, or visiting the shops in town.
I love all 3 for completely different reasons. Dressing smart can be nice without having to worry about snot trails on my dress. Leggings and tops are the best as they are super comfy and hide the mum tum. Jeans and a top are definitely my go to items in my wardrobe for public mummy. Even though they aren’t as comfy as leggings, it makes me look a little bit less Mummy and a little more….not sure how to finish that sentence?
So those are my 3 faces. How many faces do you have and which one do you like best?
