Last month P&G asked if I wanted to be a part of a their Thank You Mom campaign for the 2012 Olympic Games. I don’t do a lot of sponsored content on my blog, but being a part of a series whose main goal is to honor moms? I’m all about that.
P&G wanted create a movement that recognizes motherhood as the hardest, but, best job, in the world. It’s a bit ironic, given the recent news coverage of Hilary Rosen’s comment about Ann Romney, and the record scratch heard the world over as moms declared that they are indeed working, too. Whether it is stumbling out of bed each morning to get kids fed, doing loads and loads of laundry, juggling practice times, or caring for a child’s injuries, one thing is universally true for all mothers on every continent: while being a mom may be the toughest job in the world, it also is the most rewarding job in the world.
Below is the first spot for this year’s Thank You Mom campaign, and I think it captures perfectly the hard work that moms do. But you might want to grab a tissue first.
