Whether you’re looking for something sweet to add to a mother’s day card or just need a little inspiration, these cute Mothers Day quotes are just the thing. Happy Mother’s Day!
I write a lot about child behavior on this blog. Often, its advice when the kids aren’t quite doing what we would like; tantrums, fussy eating, hitting; you name it, we have probably covered it.
We are looking at what our kids say that melt those troubles away – what they say that make all the difficult times worth it. Sometimes it is worth recalling these moments when they are lying on the floor screaming. They do make us feel wonderful; with the way they look at us, the things they say, or even just the simple act of bringing us a cup of tea and burnt toast in bed.
It is a good idea to write down some of those sweet messages so that they stay with us forever…they will make for great future Mothers Day quotes.
With this in mind, I asked friends on social media what are the most wonderful things your kids have said about you as a mum, and some of the answers I got were just so cute, and some rather unexpected…I just had to share these sweet and funny quotes with you!

11 Cute Mothers Day Quotes from Kids
1. Hands up whose beautiful
Catherine Kelly owns her own handmade business where she makes lovely designs in wire near where I live. Clearly she is doing something to give her three girls a lot of self-confidence, which they seem to want to pass on to her. She said:
“One morning at breakfast, my 6 year old suddenly called out “Hands up if you’re beautiful!”, putting her hand up at the same time. The other two (age 10 & 3) also shot up their hands. That was wonderful – and still gets me every time I think of it.
Then, my 10 year old came over to me and put my hand up too……..”
2. Thanks for filling my tummy
Sometimes its not how you cuddle them, its what you give them to eat that leaves a lasting impression ;-). Fives a Fellowship was rather pleased to receive a Mothers Day card from her little boy, but a little perplexed when she discovered what was actually written inside it…
“Thank you for cooking my fish fingers”
I think sometimes the reasons why our little ones love us can get a little bit lost in translation…
3. You’re from outer space, mummy!
One of the lovely ladies that writes for us told me of the Mother’s Day card she got last year from her little boy:
“My mothers day card last year from my eldest, then aged 3 – he had drawn a lovely picture of me, then the teacher at nursery had written under it – ‘I love my mummy because….’ ‘….she’s an alien’!!!”
I do seem to recall something similar with my daughter who loves me “because I give her chocolate.” These days she would be lucky to keep hold of the chocolate given how important it is in this business!
4. Small but perfectly formed
In fact, the lady who inspired this chocolaty blog post, mentioned her little daughter’s recent comment to her when we were discussing cute kidisms too:
“Mummy, you may be little…..but you have a big heart”
She isn’t even that little either :-D
5. Just because…
I think that Domestic Goddesque must be one of the only ones whose little one seems to have it sussed, as during a presentation for Mothers Day at the nursery her daughter goes too, she was told:
“I love my mummy because my mummy loves me.”
Not surprisingly she cried at that little gem, and I suspect all the other mums were insanely jealous.
6. Wuv you
Love seems to be a very many splendered thing when you are a toddler, and because they haven’t quite got the hang of speech it can come out rather cute as well. I still have secret yearnings for the times when my kids couldn’t quite get their words right…
@kiddycharts love this! My almost-3-yr old today said “wuv you lots mummy” and kissed me my heart melted!!

7. Pyjama party
Our kiddies love tends to be forthcoming after the simplest of actions, such as making sure your little boy has some pyjamas to sleep in, according to Michelle Lee from Keungzai.
@kiddycharts That is so lovely! Little Man has said: “Thank you for looking after me and for my pyjamas.” ❤

Red Rose Mummy was recently tasked with finding something that her little man had lost, and had to rise to the challenge when she was told:
“Mummy, you are a superhero!”
Failure simply isn’t an option if your son thinks you are that invincible!
9. Beautiful mums
A lot of your little ones seem to think that you are rather gorgeous. A Mummy’s View shared her little girl’s recent comments with me, which occurred when she was getting dressed:
To which she got the lovely response of
This little girl also seems very tuned in to her mother’s needs. She knows that her mummy’s legs are bad, if she sees her struggling, she gently rubs them and says
“There, are your legs better now?”
We may think that at three or four, they don’t’ realise how we are feeling, but clearly they do.
10. Going to bed late
The Real Supermum‘s children are rather thoughtful….this is the note that she got from one of them after a rather difficult day – and, as I just said, our kids really do know more than we give them credit for sometimes…
11. A big heart
Finally, I couldn’t go without giving my daughter the last word on these Mothers Day quotes. She likes that at the moment you see….
She recently drew me a picture of a lovely big heart and handed it to me:
“It’s a big heart mummy, because you are special. I love you so much, you put a rainbow in my heart.”
And that makes everything better now, doesn’t it?
