It is without a doubt the strongest, most resilient and most love-filled bond there is.
I have always thought this Elizabeth Stone quote describes it so well:
“Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ”
Any mum will attest to this – the connection you have with your child, it pretty much beats anything.
Did you know, for instance, that having been pregnant, part of your baby’s cells are still there inside you? Literally proving that once you become a mother, you are forever changed, not just emotionally, but also on a biological level?
Which is why this sweet video (and experiment) by Pandora moved us a little – proving yet again the uniqueness of the mother-child bond.
Titled “The Unique Connection,” the ad shows an experiment of six mothers and their children. The mums stand in a line while, one by one each child is blindfolded and asked to identify his or her mum. Going down the line, the sightless kids hug and share a moment with each mum until they all successfully pick out their own.
Just take a look:
