OMG. Just when I thought I could not like this year’s Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain any more, I heard her on Woman’s Hour.
I have spoken before of the liberal media’s hypocrisy when discussing Nadiya, but here I just want to record what she says her about her primary vocation of being a full-time mother.
She tells us: “When I got married I embraced being a wife and when I had children I embraced being a mother. I want my husband to come home and have food on the table and the kids to have a nice home to come home to, and take the time to just enjoy them.”
I can only imagine the pain at The Times at having to type out those words – I want my husband to come home and have food on the table. I am surprised it made the final edit at all.
And when was the last time you heard someone say they want to take time to enjoy their children?
Never I tell you – it is all ‘do the right thing’, pop them in childcare, and go out to work (as if raising three children at home is not work).
I was then listening to Woman’s Hour and I heard the great Nadiya again tell us how proud she was to be a stay at home mother.
Please do listen, but the highlights are: “When you make the choice to be at home with your children there are times when you have to face the negativity that comes with that.”
“I think being a stay at home mums is tough and I am proud to represent them.”
It is official. I heart Nadiya Hussain. Now where can I buy the t-shirt?
