Though I’m not big on “commercial” holidays, and spending money just to spend it. This Mother’s Day held a different perspective for me from all the years previously, even more so now than last year. I’m not certain if my mother would have preferred a gift, I just called my mother this year to wish her a Happy Day, and just proceeded to play with my little one, interspersed with some writing for some of our other brands, then we just went for a drive. We even went to a mall where a gift was offered to me, but like I said, I just can’t get into spending money just to spend it, for holidays and stuff. I just really enjoyed being anywhere, home or not, with my own little family. I like sentimental things and making memories, so I just traced my son’s hand on paper. I tried to make hand prints with paint and that did not work out so well, but I digress.
I guess this year, I am just happy to be his “Mutter”, or “Mum Mum” as he is calling me presently. I feel grateful to see how far I’ve come emotionally, and I’m looking forward to continuing to grow myself, my family, and Takeo Tama; writing, singing and managing all of our brand endeavors.
So I guess what I’m saying is Happy Mother’s Day to all of you who are… and everyone else, call your Mom if you have not already. Other than that… Talk to you guys more soon!
