Then I went back to my couch potato-ing and saw this ad for the first time:
This P&G "hardest job" ad makes me teary just hearing the music.
Aside from being jealous of the teen daughter's hair, I get all weepy thinking about our own Em driving off on her own for the first time.
This Google ad is probably high on everyone else's lists of favorite parenting commercials. It's just that good.
This one reaches me as a parent AND as a daughter who has lost a parent. I warned Brent about the ad and he refuses to watch it for fear of his own parenting emotions. (It only took me a few viewings of this ad to realize that I wasn't missing my own Google Chat notifications, by the way.)
Feel free to share any of your favs!
