This Week in M.O.M…Was it just me, or were the Golden Globes overflowing with moments of motherhood?
From a grinning Jodie Foster showing off her two sons,
Jodie Foster and sons
to a radiant Jessica Alba, who only delivered 4 months ago, moms were representing big time at the 2012 Golden Globes.
One highlight was Michelle Williams' touching acceptance speech for her role in My Week With Marilyn, where she said that she "considers herself a mother first, and an actor second" and thanked her daughter Matilda for sending her off to work every day with a hug and a kiss. She also shared that for weeks, she read all the princesses' voices in Matilda's bedtime stories in a Marilyn Monroe voice. Now, that's a mom who knows how to multi-task, and knows the importance of job #1. Love her!
And not to leave the dads out, Peter Dinklage's acceptance speech for his role on Game of Thrones was one that every parent could relate to. He revealed that it was he and his wife's first night away from their baby. Every parent can remember that first! Although most of us, probably weren't accepting an award at the time, it is definitely a milestone of parenting.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees at the Golden Globes, but especially to those parents who inspire us, and touch us with their moments of mother(and father)hood.
