TV Spot<br />Begins with a grandmother and her grandchildren baking a cake together. As the cake is in the oven, the family dog barks up and runs to the front door. The children excitedly follow and, as the door opens, we see the uniformed legs of a doctor. As the doctor bends to hug the little boy, we see it’s their mom coming from the hospital. The young daughter beams and presents the cake with “Welcome Home Mom” written on the top, obviously proud of her creation.<br />سكر ألماس نقى وكمان بيسكر أكتر، يعنى المعلقة بمعلقتين““<br />
