If you didn't know, the Wee Monster co-founders are a team of sisters... with the same mother.
We always get asked the question: How is it working with your sister? Short answer: Sometimes, you want to rip each other's hair out, but it's also the best job we've both ever had. We can have full conversations with two words and some grunts. It makes communication easy.
In celebration of Mother's Day, we are kicking things off by writing about our own mama.
- She used to play the acoustic guitar.
- She's a human calculator.
- Shy, but one quirky person.
We don't often talk about our personal lives very often. On the blog, or even in person with many people. But if we were to describe our mom, we'd both probably have the same answer.
"She's the smartest woman I've ever met."
Our mom is an immigrant with literally nothing. Both her parents died at a young age. We never met them. She didn't have the opportunity to attend schooling, but it doesn't even matter. She's a badass, business woman, who runs multiple companies. Even when dealing with cancer, she hit the ground running. She was strong, persistent, and only had one answer.
"I'm going to make it through this for my kids."
She's always supported us in everything we've done. Now in remission, she's happier than ever. Thriving off life with her grandkids and kids. She can't get enough.
She inspires us to keep going with our small business. Thanks for your support, Mom! Always.
We'll be highlighting some very special moms in the next two weeks. Stay tuned!
