I'm Bilingual

Etsy is teaching me new things every day. I received a convo from a fellow Etsian, RevivalVintageDesign on Tuesday evening, asking me to change the "Mom" on my purple flower bouquet mother's day card to "Mum". In England they celebrate Mothering Day in March and they call their mother's Mum. Please find Revival at http://www.revivalvintagedesigns.etsy.com/.

It's funny, I remember my mother calling my grandmother Mum, and I remember thinking that was her name when I was really young and then I thought it was just some family thing. See I'm learning to speak English, and not just American.

The weatherman here is promising a snow storm starting later today. Hmmm, I'm not sure if we can believe him or not, but if he's right, snow day tomorrow? Keep your fingers crossed!

  1. Australians use British English as well, so we call our Mum's, Mum.

  3. Mum sounds more respectful than Mom, don't you think?
