Oh man, I just want to put on cute matching PJ's (I am picturing polka dots in red and green), drink some egg nog, and be 5 years old again! Heavens, 5 was a great year.
So my Mom called me yesterday.... Wait, I have to explain. My Mom is not the mom who calls her children constantly. She showers us with love from head to toe..... but she is a busy woman (where do you think I learned it from?) and she has four kids. She can't call us all the time and anyway we probably call her too much to give her a chance to call us first. I actually understand where she is coming from on the phone thing. I have some issue myself.... just ask my friends who can never get ahold of me. I just say this to explain that when my Mom calls, you answer....
So my Mom called me yesterday and she started with "Ok so I just had to tell you..."
I knew this was going to be good..... like she found a great deal or she had a craft idea.... Things I totally get.
Then she said "I just watched my first Christmas commercial that made me cry"
And this is why I am her daughter because through out the holiday season I will shed countless tears watching things like a mother brewing Folders coffee and by the time she starts drinking her cup of coffee, her long lost son will have come home and I am a wreck. (My sisters are laughing cause they understand, and my brother is laughing cause he witnesses the hysteria)
The last thing I will say on the subject is HALLMARK..... oh they make the best commercials.
Here is the one that I have watched a thousand times and it never fails to make me cry. If you love your dad.... grab the tissues.
