What’s the hardest thing about being a mom?
The hardest thing about being a mom, for me, has been to maintain my own identity and taking care of myself. I had a client [say], “Where’s Solomon?” Her daughter [told her] he was at his grandmother’s, and she said, “Aw, I wish you would have told me, I wouldn’t have even come.” (Laughs) I don’t take it personally — we’re friends and joke around a lot — but [sometimes] people just see your child, they don’t see you. You have to make them see you by you seeing you.
I’ve put my family and business obligations first, but as of late I’ve been utilizing more time to fill up Lorraine’s cup. I went out the other night [and] I did my hair — I gave it super extra attention. Every person that knew me said “Oh my God, what did you do to your hair? It looks so amazing!”
Taking care of myself is working wonders on my drive and energy level.
