How to write a great message for mum on Mothers Day

How to write a great message for mum on Mothers Day

Mother's Day CardsThe images above are my idea of ‘bad’ Mother’s Day cards. Sick humour is unlikely to make your mum feel loved and appreciated!

I try to avoid the mawkish cards. It’s too easy to dribble into the ridiculous with a gushy sentimental card – then you look insincere. There’s nothing wrong with a simple “Happy Mother’s Day”. But my personal favourite is “Clearly, you are the most perfect Mum ever! How else could I have turned out so wonderful? Happy Mother’s Day, Mum.”

Some of the best Mother’s Day cards are handmade, but you can easily personalise a nice card by writing your own message. Here are some amusing lines to use if you need some inspiration:

A suburban mother’s role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after.

It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn’t.

– Forest Houtenschil

Children are a great comfort in your old age – and they help you reach it faster, too.
– Lionel Kauffman

It is never easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it.
