Ford Shows Us Why Mothers Have Earned Their Own Holiday

There are several reasons why Ford made its Escape crossover the official vehicle of what it called “the Mother of All Driving Challenges.”

All of them include kids. Participants had to drive the soft-roader around a track while keeping their sanity through the sound of a child crying, a barrage of silly string, ice cream spills, mockery in stereo, and general obnoxiousness. After all of that, I’d certainly want to run away.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to call my mom, tell her how grateful I am that she was so patient and level-headed during all of my petty fights with my brother, get her Mother’s Day gift, then thank my lucky stars that my weekly run to the grocery store doesn’t include loading a giant pack of diapers into my cart.
