Best Job

If you’re a mom and you watch this video it will likely bring tears to your eyes.

It captures those little everyday moments of being a mom- waking up your child, making breakfast, washing their clothes, cheering them on, fixing those boo-boos, lifting them up after disappointments, encouraging them to go on and helping them to become whole persons.

All of those mini-moments help a child to reach their big moments in life.

Those little things are “just what we do” as a parent.   But moms don’t get enough credit.   Heck, we don’t give ourselves enough credit for the hard work.

But this 2-minute video manages in one big lump to effectively say ,”Job well done, moms.”

It’s a thank you to moms- an appreciation and a validation that what we do matters.

It’s a commercial by Proctor & Gamble that will air during this summer’s Olympics.    Boy, is it effective.  It has received over 1 million hits already on YouTube.   I think for two reasons:

  • great music  (Divenire by Ludovico Einaudi)
  • great theme

And by the way, it doesn’t  matter if your child ends up an Olympian in the future.  What counts is that children have a parent/role model/adult figure who always has their back.

The tag line is “The hardest job in the world is the best job in the world.”

But moms already know that.

  1. I’m a tough nut, so I didn’t think it’d make me cry…….but it did.

  2. Sylvia says:

    I cried… I didn’t want to and I tried to fight it… but I did. I felt so proud of each accomplishment as if it’s my own child’s. Great Video!

  3. As a sports parent blogger, I especially loved this. We sports parents sacrifice so much for our kids to succeed and grow in their character and skill.

    Thanks for sharing!
