Definition found on website http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Mummified
Converted into a mommy, 24/7 – Disciplinarian, teacher, playmate, cheerleader, counselor, and “maid” to my two kids (four-year old son and one-year old daughter);
AND acquiring mommy-like substance – Longsuffering (patience), protectiveness (‘Hey you, DO NOT push him!’ me shouting with wagging finger at other kids at the playground), sensibility (yikes! But it’s true, ‘eat your veggies young man!’);
having the appearance of a mommy, i.e. withered! –It’s exhausting being a stay home mom, not just physically but also emotionally. Try keeping sane and not losing it to a screaming unreasonable four-year old when they decide to throw a fit for the millionth and one time! It’s not the keeping sane at those times that is hard, it is keeping sane ALL the time, 24/7 that’s really exhausting! I’ve to set an example, I’m nurturing my kids, raising them up as best as I can, blah, blah, blah. It’s sure damn hard!
Anyway, that’s my life; I’ve been mommy-fied. No turning back.
