The "face" of Advertising

Nikeswooshred Even with a Tivo to speed through advertising my kids are completely susceptible to the advertising and product placement that is everywhere pretty much all the time.

When tucking Cam in last night, after I had a particularly rough day, we had a moment.  I bent to hug him, in a way a mom can tenderly do while simultaneously thinking, "please sleep quickly so I can collapse in my own bed."

Cam tenderly reached up and touched me on the face near the corner of my eye.  "Mom," he said gently.  ". . .you know the tired line under your eyes?  It looks like the Nike symbol."

Maybe my "tired lines, " "mommy-wrinkles" or whatever are trying to indicate that I'm "Just doing it - the best I can."

Swimming, Biking, Running and "Just Doing It - The Best I Can" with an all too honest 8-year-old. . .



Great story. Maybe you (and lots of us moms) can get a Nike sponsorship.

Hmmm... subconsciously maybe that's where the idea came from ;) Sleep well!
