Teleflora, a flower company, has released a new commercial that shows just how bad ass mothers all over the world really are.
Set to Vince Lombardi’s famous “What It Takes to Be Number One” speech, the video depicts moms through all the struggles of parenthood. There’s the mom who has to leave her children at night to work at the hospital, the mom who comforts her son who yells at her, the mom working with her infant strapped to her chest, and even the mom who needs her mom. Each of the short scenes accurately depicts why the commercial is called “One Tough Mother.”
So rather than celebrate those soft moments of love and compassion that mother’s show their kids, Teleflora has done something wonderful – they’ve showed the gritty, tough, and sometimes painful side of motherhood and how moms handle those moments with strength beyond compare.
