Actress Golden Brooks and her daughter Dakota Tao,2, at a Los Angeles Farmers Market on Sunday, January 29, 2012. The two make a wonderful shopping pair!
Brooks recently discussed the joys of motherhood with SOHH saying that being a mom has afforded her the opportunity to appreciate life. Golden states, “Before I got pregnant, I was just in career mode. That was pretty much my focus. Career. Career. Career. ‘I’ve got this project. What am I going to do after this project?’ Having a child totally changed me. My daughter has taught my patience. It’s not about the next job. It’s not about the next project. It’s about being a better me. I know it sounds cliche. I was fortunate enough to take time off rather than leave her with a nanny and let a nanny raise her. I think the first years of her life are really important. It’s that divine energy. It just opened my eyes to a lot of things. I look at a lot of things differently now.”
