There’s nothing like the bond between a mom and her child. That’s not to downplay the roles dads or other parental figures play but there’s just something unique about a mother and her kid. And an experiment from jewelry brand Pandora proves it.
To test the theory, six women lined up while their children were blindfolded. The kids then took turns approaching the moms and using nothing but their senses of touch and smell, each was able to easily find their mama in the lineup. From hand-holding and smelling their faces, to butterfly kisses and little hands on cheeks, the children were able to recognize their moms each time.
The song, “Staircase” by Dan Leigh, totally completes the ad but what hits you right in the feels is the moms’ nervous, hopeful looks as their kid approaches. It’ll have you reaching for both the box of tissues — and the phone, to call your own mother.
