Sis, me, mom, bathroom mirror.

Little sis, Juris Doctor!!! Little bro, Senior accountant at Ernst & Young. Me, the strange one who writes stories about the family so no one tells her anything. Mama, Haitian immigrant beaming with pride. πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸŽ“πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸ“šπŸ‡­πŸ‡Ή

Daughters asked for these braids. Thank you to whoever brought back these Cicely Tyson circa 1973 cornrows. Solange? Blue Ivy? I rocked these myself about twenty years ago. Will add some wooden beads, cowrie shells, & more of those gold thingies. So ancient & regal. Well, that's how I spent my Mother's Day.

Ha! Payback! Now I know how my mother feels when I post old pics of her! Pre-motherhood. Repost from my daughter: Happy Mother's Day to this beautiful woman, Ibi Aanu Zoboi. I love you so much, thank you for being in my life. ❀ @ibizoboi

Mother's Day Weekend self-care. So needed this! In a room full of gorgeous black mothers & entrepreneurs discussing businesses, dreams, goals, aspirations, and not finding balance but finding *harmony.* #themloungenyc (M for motherhood) @chicbusymoms @tracychambersvintage @inhershoesblog Sponsored by @essence & @edenbodyworks

#tbt Because May is both Mother's Day and First Holy Communion season. Me & Manman cheri. Bushwick. 198-. Martin de Porres R.C. Church on Knickerbocker Avenue. When my daughters first saw this, they thought I was a child bride. πŸ™πŸΎπŸ’
