Random Kanji Knowledge: Haha

Random Kanji Knowledge time! First off, a happy 母の日 (Mother’s Day) to you all!

母, which can be pronounced “haha” and has different readings when combined with other things (such as お母さん okaasan), means mom of course. The kanji itself refers to a woman’s breasts (my sensei back in high school told us to remember it as a lady lying down on her side), a common symbol for motherhood.

We all have an important mom/mother/mama/mommy figure in our lives.

We owe a lot to our mothers for taking care of us for so many years, so be sure to make this day truly special as best as you can for them, OK?

The stroke order for “mother” is shown below.

Have a wonderful 母の日, everyone! 🙂
