Funny Mother’s Day messages

Mum, you are way cooler than dad.

Dear Mum. Thanks for putting up with a whiny, bratty child like my sibling. Love from your favourite child.

Mum. Congratulations – I turned out fabulous!

Mum, I know it’s hard for you on Mother’s Day...
to hide the fact that I’m your favourite!

A mum: the amazing ability to hear a sneeze through closed doors in the middle of the night three bedrooms away, while dad snores next to her.

Because I said so. Every single mum

Mother’s Day poems

I’m glad that you’re my mother,
kind and caring and strong.
Coz surely no-one else,
Could have put up with me this long!

You taught me to say Please and Thanks,
Because politeness is the way,
So ‘Please’ can I borrow some money? Thanks!
Just kidding. Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living,
My mum you’ll be.

My Mother, my friend so dear
throughout my life you’re always near.
A tender smile to guide my way
You’re the sunshine to light my day.
