Being a Mom is an amazing blessing and privilege! But, let’s get real in a hurry…it is THE HARDEST and most challenging role I have ever had! We all have those “special” days that push us to (and many times BEYOND) our mental, physical and emotional limits. If we don’t find a way to lighten the mood, we might just ugly cry locked up in a bathroom somewhere, with an XL family size bag of sour cream and cheddar potato chips! (or maybe that is just me!) Here are 31 funny mom quotes to lift your spirits and keep you laughing!
Getting Your Mom Card
When you become a Mom for the very first time, you experience feelings you never knew existed! You are so in love with this new little life, yet, you are overcome with fear knowing that baby is completely and utterly dependent on you for EVERYTHING!
I remember being wheeled out of the hospital after our daughter was born and I was thinking to myself, “how are they letting me take this child home already?” I mean, I went to college and grad school and read all those books! But this baby is coming home without a book or manual.
I feel ill equipped…in over my head and a little bit (or a lotta bit panicky!)
What if I’m not really ready?
Well…ready or not…we were on our way home!
No turning back.
No return policies.
We had earned our parent card and we were now part of the official club.
Things got real…fast!
A Day in the Life of a Mom
Mom life is all the feels…all the time!
One minute you are cuddling your sweet little one and the next minute you are losing your mind and about to pull all your hair out!
Seconds later after you regain your composure, life seems good again…until…it isn’t. Now you are crying over (literal) spilled milk and cheerios!
Can you remember saying to yourself, “I cannot wait for little Johnny and sweet Suzy to start walking and talking!”
What were we thinking??? What’s the rush?
Life was way easier when they were contained with limited language!
I’m kidding…well, sort of!
But really… little kids, little problems!
Bigger kids…bigger problems!
‘Momming’ is not easy! More times than not, it can feel heavy and a lot like serious business!
It can also feel lonely.
Why Mom’s Need Humor & Laughter
Being a mom is an incredible blessing.
Every day is a new adventure. A journey into the unknown!
We wouldn’t trade it for anything, right?!
But, if we are honest, it can feel so hard sometimes. There are so many days when we feel like absolute failures…total trainwrecks…captains of our own hot mess express!
Sometimes there are way more tears than there is laughter!
Yes, our jobs are heavy.
Indeed, we are responsible for keeping people alive!
But, life is meant to be enjoyed! Sometimes, we need to learn to have a little fun and NOT take ourselves so seriously!
Let’s all take a few minutes each day and commit to making laughter a priority! Your spirit needs laughter! These funny mom quotes are a great place to start.
