[Mother's Day Plan 1] Thinking about becoming a mother ~ Kokoshi cafe owner Hiromi Shiratori ~
May 10th is "Mother's Day". This year, mothers are busier than usual, preparing three meals for their families, cleaning up, and working. Many people say that it was a day of gratitude, but before they knew it, they were grateful. Nowadays, the selection of gifts is restricted, so in order to send ale to the mothers of the world, Areti.'S beauty travel editorial department told three women, "Mother" after becoming a mother. We interviewed about "Mother's Day".
The first is Hiromi Shiratori, the owner of kokoshi cafe, a collection of Japanese handicrafts.
Little by little, my hands are released, and my love is rising.
Shiratori, who is also the mother of an 11-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy. Children are around the age when their parents don't know about each other and their worlds expand, but when they talk about the events of the day happily or when they always say "I love you" before going to bed. It seems that the children are still squeezing.
"When I hugged while crying, I moved to my bed in the middle of the night and saw my son sleeping? I wonder if I can afford to be a mother year after year. I enjoy every day with my children, feeling cute even if they are small. Children who need my existence more than anyone and say that I love them. They trust me with all my might. Because I am happy about that, I want to continue to be sincere to people. There are many points that I cannot reach as a mother, but if I can show my children what I am as a human being, including that, then naturally I feel that it will also help me to pursue my ideals. "
What I want to tell you now
The word "Thank you" again
She tells her mother, who now lives apart, that she "sometimes felt overprotective when she lived with her." But now that she's a mother, she can understand why she was so worried and how important she was.
"My mother had a job, but I realize that it wasn't natural for her to be with me as much as possible and listen to me at all times. I respect all of my attitude toward child-rearing. Even if I try to be like my mother, I can't do it. I like flowers, so on Mother's Day, I give flowers and rare foliage plants every year, and talk on the videophone. I'm spending time. I found a cute hydrangea that my mother seems to like this year, so I'm arranging to send it. "
Personal time, parent-child time. Both are important
Now that the school is closed and the time spent with the children is increasing, the mother wants to talk about it, but Mr. Shiratori is conscious of "not to over-interfere".
"Children also need their own time and should be able to think and act on their own. However, it's boring to be" individual "all the time, so buy a lot of books you want to read and share your thoughts. I feel that we can comfortably have time to enjoy cooking together, watching movies, and having fun with parents and children. "
Seen from her daughter, Shiratori is a mother who is "gentle and always supports me." Seen from her son, Shiratori is a mother who has "smooth and cute skin." She's an ideal mom and I envy her!
"Her son thinks (would you like to) that his mom is much younger, so she feels pressured but struggles not to disappoint her (laughs)."
