When this IKEA Christmas video first started making the rounds last year, it struck me RIGHT in the center of my mom-heart. Watching it again this year was no different! This is one powerful piece of advertising because it conveys an absolute truth—children are designed to crave time with their parents, and that is the absolute best gift we can give them.
In this “material world” we live in, isn’t it wonderful to know that with so many gadgets and devices available to them, our kids just still want US? If that’s what our babies want, how can we deny them that? It doesn’t cost a thing and it never loses it’s value.
Let’s take this to heart this year, mamas, and give our kids our PRESENCE instead of presents, all year round!
