Next Sunday is Mother’s Day. That day which we thank our moms with some flowers, maybe a nice brunch out, and some token of love. I’m a mom and my family (husband) honors me by having me take him to the airport for his annual conference which every flipping year starts on Mother’s Day! (I’d really like to slug the conference chairperson of ASMA or whoever sets the timing of this conference.) But enough about how I get robbed nearly every year of this holiday. I’m going to shut up and say thanks to my mom.
I don’t know if you’ve seen the latest Proctor & Gamble commercial that they’ll be using during the London olympics, but I caught it on Facebook. It’s one of their commercials which ends with them claiming to be “The Proud Sponsor of Moms.” Let’s just say, I’m a sap and I cry every time I watch this. I get images of my own mom waking me up to take me to baton contests, studding rhinestones into costumes, sewing costumes, putting my hair up, and praying for that elusive no-drop routine. And what did I usually do while she was doing that? Probably moaning and groaning about how early it was, griping every time she stuck me with a pin when she was making the costume (hey, it happened a lot), holding my breath for fear of suffocating from massive amounts of Aqua Net, and praying that my hands would stop sweating so much so I could achieve that elusive no-drop routine.
Hopefully your technologically-challenged Monday Fox can post the video of the commercial so you won’t have to wait until summer. Just make sure you’ve got your box of Kleenex ready…or whatever brand of tissue that Proctor and Gamble makes. Happy Monday!
