I tried this “how well do you know mom” interview with B, and his honest and hilarious answers melted my heart today.
My mommy’s nameis Mei She is 19 years old Mom and I like to paint and play Mom likes to say I love you My mom really loves me She likes to eat ice kacang She likes to drink tea My mom’s job is to help me If she had time, she would like to play with me Mom is really good at typing If I could go anywhere in the world with her, we would take roller coasters in Japan I love my mom because she loves me
I also had a flashback to the past when us CRIB founders were interviewed for a Mother’s Day feature last year. Here’s the coverage 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms – you are indispensable super women! And for those trying to conceive and/or moms to be, take care of yourselves, and while we trust and hope for a future to come, don’t neglect to live fully in the now. Hugs.
To my mom, my son, and all mamas this Mothers’ Day:
Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath. Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step. Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall. Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all.
Her hands were there to brush my hair, or straighten a wayward bow. Her hands were often there to comfort the hurts that didn’t always show. Her hands helped hold the stars in place, and encouraged me to reach. Her hands would clap and cheer and praise
when I captured them at length.
Her hands would also push me, though not down or in harms way. Her hands would punctuate the words, just do what I say. Her hands sometimes had to discipline, to help bend this young tree. Her hands would shape and mold me into all she knew I could be.
Her hands are now twisting with age and years of work,
Her hand now needs my gentle touch to rub away the hurt. Her hands are more beautiful than anything can be. Her hands are the reason I am me.
