Grab a tissue: Fisher-Price ‘Poem to Your Child’ Video

Close your eyes and recall the best memories of when you were young.

I’m sure your recollections were of play, and times shared with loved ones. These moments which make a lasting impression even years later, is what drives my parenting today. My hope is that one day my girls will recall their happy play – and in those recollections, their Mom is right there playing with them as well.

Playing with my kids is something I have been focusing a lot on. It’s brought much joy to us all – laughs, complete silliness, and a chance to bond. I discover so much about them, and they’ve learned more about their Mom as well.

Playing with your kids brings joy to the now, and creates those comforting memories that last forever. Though life is busy, I make the time to collect these moments as much as possible.

Fisher-Price Poem to Your Child Video

Fisher-Price has released “Poem to Your Child“, a video about celebrating all the amazing moments in a child’s life, and encouraging play time between Mom and child. This video touches my heart like no other, I fully admit to crying the entire way through.

Grab a tissue – it’s totally worth pausing life for.


Parents, the time is now. Life passes far too quickly and opportunities don’t last forever. Make that time to play.
