A Mother’s Day Salute

Hi there, guys and dolls! One of the favorite special occasions is right around the corner. Mother’s Day is something we all should share and celebrate, from the perspective of mother and/or child. Mothers do so much for the future of our wo4806463_l3rld, so let’s take a few moments through the magic of educational video to honor the terrific ladies in our lives.

All great film experiences should start with a cartoon. Here we have Goo Goo Goliath who is a cute, big baby that still this mother truly loved.12_0524_05

Now for you more traditional mothers out there, here’s a clip of the modern hospital,where baby will get a much better delivery than a drunk stork. Do pay special attention to the wonderful feature of the baby drawer. Just whisk them in and out, at your pleasure.answering_the_childs_why

And then, just a few years down the road of life, the happy mother shares her wisdom and always remembers to Answer The Child’s Why, or risk developing a poor case study like Molly, who will have to learn life’s liEatforHe1954_00030000ttle answers for herself.

And mothers help us all grow big and strong. In Eat for Health, Ralph may learn about the five food groups (a little different from our times now), but mother’s the one to make sure they’re oA_Date_with_Your_Familyn the table, ready and yummy.

Speaking of food, what’s a better thing than all sitting down together to celebrate Mother’s Day and the Family Dinner Date. Just remember to always do your share to help out and make the meal pleasant and happy.

Of course, some of this is very hokey, dated and sexist, but honestly, aren’t these clips just a hoot? What with the choppy editing, wonky music and grainy quality, the old fashioned attitudes fit right in. Take it all with a grain of salt. There are still some terrific values in what is being said, and the rest, well, be glad we’ve evolved ;-)!
