Motherhood: the job that has no off days … ever.
For most of us, our first words as a baby were “Da-da”. You’d think it would be “Ma-ma” but that’s seldom the case. That’s kind of crazy considering the amount of time we spend with our mother, especially before we’re born.
For nine months, we spend every second of every day in our mother’s womb. We eat with her, sleep with her, and hear all the same things.
With all these great and not so great experiences we get to share with our mothers, from the moment of conception it’s important to remember how special she is, and these motherhood quotes highlight some of the best (and worst) parts of being a mom.
Sometimes as kids or even as adults, we aren’t fully aware of the sacrifices our mothers made in deciding to have us. Maybe it’s because we’re just naive or normalize her sacrifices. Whatever the case may be, she has done a lot for us.
Being a mother is arguably one of the most fulfilling yet difficult roles you can take in life. Unlike the typical, 9 to 5, motherhood does not come with breaks, sick leave, vacation, or raises. It essentially has none of the benefits of a regular job. But yet, a mom still takes on this role. She does it all out of love.
Once you’re a mom, your life will never be the same. It goes from a life that use to revolve around you, to one that is centered around your children.
Talk to anyone who’s a been a mother or even pregnant, and you’ll find the common consensus, that even though motherhood is tough they wouldn’t trade it for the world. The life-altering commitment of motherhood is worth all the sleepless nights.
This collection of the very best motherhood quotes will serve as inspiration and encouragement to keep looking at the bright side of being a mom. They’d be perfect for a Mother’s Day card for an experienced mom, expectant mom, or anything in between.
