This is a story about a little girl who grew up on an island in the Caribbean, eating mangoes and drinking coconut milk (well, I'm sure she did more than that, but this is a bedtime story so for narrative's sake, I've got to leave out the boring bits), who got booted out of the country and shipped to the Motherland at the wee age of 13. And it was on said Motherland where she conveniently ended up becoming a mother who today lives on a peninsula, surrounded by a large body of water (except this time it's a lake and not the ocean; buzz-kill, I know), eating puff pastry and drinking red wine. And she gave birth to MEEEEEEEEEE (so I kind of owe her one).
Mama Power deserved VIP treatment on this Mother's Day and that IS what she got.
Let us reminisce about the day...
First things first, this is my mother. This 5 foot nothin' woman birthed me and then sang this song. What can't she do???
And this is where the action went down.
And this is the action. And I made this. I'm still in shock.

And the stars of the show.
Ok, who am I kidding, THIS is the star of the show.
And who can forget the supporting actor? Yummy.
