Heartwarming Video Shows How Incredible Mothers Really Are

Lately, I have been struggling with my upcoming birthday and my career ambition. I didn't start my career in radio until I was 40. Before that, I was a stay at home mom that worked part time as a theatre teacher. When radio came into my life, I suddenly felt as if the world was opening up for me. I felt there was NO limit to what I could do. But, it wasn't long before I became realistic about my career goals.

Emotional Baby Reacting to Mom Singing is Too Cute

I sang to my kids from the very first moment I held them in my arms. Sometimes they would laugh and other times they reacted much differently. Especially the moments when I would rouse them out of bed with Opera vocals. (lol) But for the most part, they loved my singing...well at least I told myself that. :-)

This video was emailed to me (thank you Stephen and Larry) and it really struck a chord for me. I can't tell if the baby is emotional about the sad song or just sad that his mother is singing and smiles when he thinks she is finished. For my kids, it was usually the latter.

Sometimes I think as parents, we fall a little short in showing our kids how proud we are of their accomplishments, especially in school and when they might be struggling a bit. The kid in the below video is a student in England and really struggles in school.

Johnson’s Doesn’t Want Moms to Forget That They Are Doing Ok in Heartwarming New Ad

The best years of my life were spent as a stay at home mom. I will forever cherish those beautiful, blessed moments with my babies. I sometimes wish I could go back to those days, not to change anything but to appreciate them more. Now, when I try to call them and they don't pick up or I try to schedule time with them but they are too busy, I wish I had realized how wonderful those moments of singing, playing, crying, changing and feeding were before they were gone.But, isn't that how life is......

I recently saw this ad and I had to rewind it to watch it again and again, with a tissue.

Watch Baby Cry When Dad Shaves Beard

Our children know us by sound and by sight when they are babies. Change something about your appearance and your child might try and keep you at arms length and could be very unsure of you. My daughter Emily never knew me without a mustache and needless to say, when I shaved it...she was not happy and kinda freaked out when she was 18 months old.
