The One Where We Were in An Advert...

A few weeks ago I was invited to Media City to do some singing with the kids on film for an Internet advert for Cussons Mum & Me products. I said yes, it was my day off and we didn't have anything planned. This wasn't a blogging thing - they just wanted 'real mums' to get involved.

The kids were well-behaved on the way to Manchester, and I was a bit excited taking them both out a bit into the unknown - like a little adventure.

Cussons Mum & Me wanted to use real mums in their ad - to show what it is really like to be a parent. I was really chuffed when I read the lyrics that had been written in place of "If You're Happy and You Know It" - a bit quirky, funny, and really just full of love for our babies - I was on board right away.

If you follow this blog, you'll know I've had a but of a crappy couple of weeks (Yes, I'm a REAL mum, with real life problems and stuff.) However, today, the director of this advert sent me the video.

I'll be honest, it has absolutely cheered me up no end. It has captured some really sweet, honest shots of gorgeous babies with their loving Mummies - and I'm one of them. I love how they have managed to capture us. I sometimes worry about whether I am being a good mother, I doubt myself and hope that I am doing the right thing for my girls. This video showed me another side to myself - the shot of me and the girls - the two of them smiling, and me, so proud, so happy.

I love them so much. And they make me very happy.

Here is the video in full.
