The Bond Between a Mother and Her Daughter

I watched this in the morning before I left for my doctor’s appointment and it was such a bad idea because now I look like a hot mess and my eyes are all red and puffy.

Just the first 15 seconds of music made me start to tear up.

The video is made by Wacoal but obviously has nothing to do with bras except that women wear them.

Still, it’s a good short film. *sniffle* *sniffle*

I promise.

Just watch it in the privacy of your own home. Trust me on that last part.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    This video is amazing. I am not an emotional person and my relationship with my mother has been rocky over the years – to say the least but this video brought me to tears.

    I cried. It’s so sweet and that woman! She inspires me to love. How are the baby hormones affecting your emotions, by the way? I found that 20 twenty months after giving birth, I still cry at everything. I can’t watch the Olympics anymore because both the win and the loss stories send me to tears.

      *LAUGHING*!! can you still blame the baby 20 months after giving birth? 🙂

      I am sniffling even at the thought of sad things. I don’t think I’m crying at the drop of a hat, but I am certainly not stoic these days…

    TEARS. Geez, I can’t stop crying! I already feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have my little boy.. and believe me, he’s my miracle child because of how difficult it was for us to get pregnant. But my god… I can’t stop crying from watching this video!

    Ditto what Janine said. I am not even a mother, but as soon as the Mom was making faces at that adorably happy, pig-tailed little girl… I knew it was over 🙂

    Haha, I’m so glad I took your advice and didn’t watch it on my break in the library today… *sniffle*
