Former Spice Girl reckons that despite her jet set lifestyle, she’s still a “normal mum” and loves mucking in at lunchtime
With her immaculate appearance and her uniform of sky-high heels and designer arm candy, you couldn’t imagine Victoria Beckham getting her hands dirty in the kitchen. However, Posh, 35, has revealed that she is a “normal mum” and even does regular stints as the dinner lady at her sons’ school!
“If I’m not working, I go to the school and help serve lunches to the children. They just love that. It’s like, ‘Oh there’s Mummy serving me!'” she told US Glamour magazine.
Posh, serving up mushy peas and cold custard, wearing a hair net and apron? Whatever next! Well, she’s also pretty good at storytelling too and has even gained a fan base… “The other day I was there, I was reading to Cruz’s class. All the little girls were saying, ‘We really like your dress,’ I thought it was quite cute because I don’t have a girl,” she shared.
The popstar-turned-fashion-designer and mum to three boys, Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 7, and Cruz, 5, takes her role model duty seriously and admitted she hates people being negative about her slender frame. “I appreciate that young girls look up to me. And I take that very seriously.”
It's good that V.B gets involved in her childrens' schools, I work as a dinner lady (now called Midday Supervisory Assistant) and we do not wear hair nets, we simply wear tabards that are well stocked with tissues, scissors, pens and papers and a whistle (which is what we now need as dinner ladies).
We look after children in the canteen and on the playgrounds administering basic first aid when required and it is a very fulfilling job particularly when children come up and hug you, but unfortunately we are not allowed to hug back (which is such a shame, bureaucracy gone mad). So good on you Victoria Beckham.
There is a big shortage of lunchtime staff, so if you get a chance to be a dinner lady (or Midday Supervisory Assistant) then please give it a go, it's only for an hour a day and you get good satisfaction from it, and it could lead you into other careers such as a teaching assistant or learning support assistant.
And the dinners are much better now than they used to be, because schools are only allowed to use fresh ingredients and have to make all the pastries and cakes, etc up from 'scratch' - no packets in sight.
