When my kids were in the baby and toddler stage, I found no end of things to feed guilty about, including whether or not I breastfed long enough, made babyfood from scratch, and...yes...carried the baby in a sling. Friends who did where vocal in their conviction for how nothing was more important to forge a bond with the child, make them feel safe, etc. Well, I have TMJ, a jaw disorder, and I just couldn't carry my children on me; it was hard not to feel like I was short-changing my children. I wondered - should I put up with the pain for the safe of my child?

Thus, I did identify with the commercial with respect to the child-mom trade-off that many mothers face. Should I do something for the benefit of my child, knowing that it will hurt me.

However, I agree with you Holly that there is so much wrong with the commercial - the condescending, sarcastic tone, the copy (why did "bod" rub me the wrong way?), etc. They could have done a lot to present the child/mom pain dilemma in a kind, understanding manner, along the lines of "Sometimes as Moms, we can't do it all". But that's just my 2 cents! :)

My husband gave this to me for Mother's Day this year. It's a wodrneful collection of two discs full of stories and anecdotes, and they are all different enough from each other that listening does not get old. There were some segments I actually listened to twice. My favorite was probably Mother's Day vs. Fishing Seaon Opener. Maybe that's because I live in Minnesota, but I'm sure it has universal appeal. The segment Mementos Honor Sons Lost to War brought tears to my eyes, as did the story about the grandma with Alzheimer's. There may have been a few segments that were not true driveway moments for me, but every single one of them was worth a listen. And a few of them have left pretty deep imprints in my mind. I recommend this collection!
