Mama’s Day 2013

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mother’s out there! I hope your day was full of love, laugher and *ahem* rest. If you’re anything like me, you probably didn’t relax for too long…

I got to work on some projects that I will be posting shortly (wheee!) and tried really hard not to run away from home to my local Ikea for a little light window shopping.

All in all, it was a wonderful day.

My older son (pictured above on the left) presented me with a handmade greeting card.

But wait, this wasn’t just any handmade card, this was an Olu original, limited edition, epic novel called “The adventures of Builder M.”

It depicts a superheroine who happens to be a mom, whose superpower is fixing things with her super-power tools!

Got  that? My kid thinks I have super-powers!

What I love the most about this?

That children pay attention.

They really see you,  sometimes even better than you see yourself.

Sometimes it’s easy to believe that your children don’t know or appreciate all that you do. This is a reminder that they do, and they do.

The babies are the greatest.

Play the video below to see the rest of my son’s artistic stylings.

A superheroine named Mom whose super power is fixing things. Yup, That’s me!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you, Yetunde! So glad that you have kids that pay attention and let you know it in their own special way. Super talented kid you got there. Definitely a combination of the talents of you and the Mr. 🙂
