Stupid advert anyway . . .

There are two adverts on TV right now which bring tears to my eyes every time I watch them. Predictably, they're to do with children and families. One is for McDonald's, one is for Kinder Surprise. I am getting SO tired of tearing up every time I watch them. MD laughs at me for it, but I can't help it.

This is the first one.

Every time I see the older brother say "coming, Sam?" (around the 50 second mark) . . . cue blurry eyes.

The other one I can't find on the internet, but the gist of it is that a father leaves the office early in order to surprise his young son by picking him up from school (he then of course treats him to a Kinder Surprise, but that's not the point lol). It's clearly originally in another language (Australian boys don't call their fathers "Papa" for a start!) but it still gets me every time. Damnit.


That Sam sure is a dear litle boy.

Some things always make me tear up...there's one hymn we sing in our choir having the line, "You (Christ, that's to say) give me sight when I'm blinded, come see for me". I have a sister-in-law who is blind from macular degneration.

And when I talk about my second son's birth, which was more than difficult. So I shouldn't talk about it, right? :-)

Re:Papa-in my community(French-speaking)the kids do call their Fathers "Papa".And Mum is "Maman".
Not my children, though, they say Mum and Dad.
Our daughter occasionally calls her Father "Da."

It's Tassie.
