IKEA commercial makes moms weep forever
I took a picture kissing my 5-year-old on the cheek a few weeks ago, and he rolled his eyes. At that moment, I was reminded that he wouldn’t be a little boy forever. Soon, he probably won’t need me to climb into bed and read him a story so he can fall asleep. He probably won’t want me to walk him all the way up to the door at school. He’ll probably stop saying things like, Mommy — I love you most.
PASS THE WINE.
IKEA knows this time is coming. And their new commercial reminds us all, no matter how big our children get, they never stop being our babies.
Yes, I know that’s cliché. Just watch the video.
Thanks a lot, IKEA.
BRB, sobbing forever.
