Old Spice Makes Moms Sad

Although I don’t look much like the moms in this commercial, I am scared that I’m going to turn into one of them soon. I have a 12-year old that is right on the verge of becoming a teenager and I’m absolutely terrified of what is to come. I think mainly because I know that means he is growing up and he won’t need me anymore.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. Moms want to be needed, in fact we may even need to be needed. We act like we would like nothing better than to take a vacation from everything, but the truth is we love the job of being a mom and we wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

I love all my boys and although they drive me crazy, I am going to miss them like crazy when they’re grown and gone. I don’t know how well I’m going to take the next few years as they get older and enter the teenage years.

I know some people might find this Old Spice ad a bit strange but I see it as a glimpse into my future. One day you will probably find me being drug behind my son’s car in a laundry basket while he is on a date, peeking out from behind curtains to spy on him or slipping out from between couch cushions to knit and cry about how my son is turning into a man.
