I don’t think it’s news to anyone that being a working mother requires a bit of sacrifice. The balance of being there for your child while simultaneously pursuing your own dreams is a delicate one. And there are times when one area of your life will slip or you’ll miss some opportunity choosing one role in your life over the other.
It happened to Cardi B. recently with her daughter Kulture. Days after celebrating her daughter’s first birthday, Cardi was back on the road touring, making money. During a date in Nebraska, she hosted a meet and greet with concert goers. While she was ki-king with fans, she missed a moment.
“So I’m doing a meet-and-greet right? And Hennessy calls me with Kulture. And I’m like, ‘I’m doing a meet-and-greet right now, I’m gonna call you guys right back. Then Offset calls me and I’m like, ‘I’m doing a meet-and-greet babe, call Hennessy though she’s with Kulture,’ And he calls her … he witnessed my baby’s first two steps. He always witness the good s—! My baby started to walk already! I can’t take it, I can’t take it.”
There will be plenty of steps in the future but of course I understand Cardi being salty about missing these first two, especially when she was so close to witnessing the moment.
But since Kulture, based on her mother’s admission, is so much like the rapper, we’re sure they’ll be a lot more movement in the future.
