So if you happen to follow me on Twitter, you may already know this. It really, really pains me to admit it, but admit it I must. I am no longer a "Yuppy".
Some of you may argue that maybe, due to my age, I haven't been an yuppy for a while. After all, "yuppy" does come from "young urban professional". But I say, you are truly only as young as you feel. Plus, I do consider myself to be young still.
But I digress. You see, due to finances, and many other reasons, this past spring we sold our home and bought a new, less expensive one - in the (gasp) suburbs! I know, I'm still in shock and we moved nearly 4 months ago.
Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing house with an awesome yard. But we're back in the boonies.
We gave up a neighbourhood with schools, coffee shops, and being close to the pathway system for a bigger house and yard. Sure, we saved money, and the Babe seems to like it, but I'm still getting used to it.
So forgive me yet again. I was first the "Pregnant Yuppy", then "Yuppy Mom", and now because I still feel it in my heart, I will continue to be the "Yuppy Mom", even though it's not entirely accurate.
And if you don't like it, you can:
