I may be having a reaction to this video cuz I don't come from a stereotypical, western family. I had multiple "mom's" which meant that my mom had plenty of help with us kids. But I guess what i find most annoying is the whole trying to shove mom's into a job title. Have we come to a place to where we can't appreciate something unless it fits in a capitalist mold? Do we need to commodify motherhood in order to tell our 'mom's' that we love them? Are they going to do a similar video for 'dad's'? I dunno, maybe my inner idealist just wants to believe that some things are not quantifiable and are done, because that's just part of being human and taking part in our communities.

Before I published this my historian husband pointed out that this has echoes of the Victorian era cult of domesticity.

On a happier note, let me leave you with a link to some awesome portraits of American Indians :) http://project562.com/?page/157438/g…
