NounEdit

yummy (plural yummies)

  1. (slang) Ellipsis of yummy mummy
    • 2009, Leah McLaren, The Continuity Girl
      The Yummies were the women who, next to the Starlets and Professional Have-It-Alls, Meredith envied most, and therefore half-despised. You could see them at the latte bars, drinking green tea smoothies, hoisting their fat-cheeked offspring from one hip to the other, comparing notes on washable diapers and baby-friendly resorts.
