Quotes that make me happy

Quotes that make me happy

If you scroll through the never ending pages of Pinterest, you are bound to come by at least 50 pins that are either quotes, sayings, or words of wisdom. 

Yes I am one of those people that like to have my walls full of quotes and sayings, and my camera roll is full of the same. They inspire me, motivate me, and make me feel happy.

Today I am sharing 5 of my top mummy quotes that make me happy, and reinforce the fact that I am a mum, and to me, these quotes sum up motherhood.

 
This could not be more true, Monkey see, monkey do. Even though my child is only 2, I have already experienced this so many times, be it accidental words that come out my mouth, actions I unknowingly do. Its so important to be aware of what you are doing at all times because kids look up to their parents, and place them on a pedestal because they want to be just like you, do what they do. I continue to make an effort to be a positive example so that my child will grow up doing the right things in life.

This is my far one of my most favourite quotes. I cant even begin to comprehend what I have gained from becoming a mum, its not something you can explain, or put in words. It has to be the best feeling in the world, and it makes me so happy.

This was my go word quote during the first few months of being a mum. Sleepless nights, utter exhaustion, thoughts of "why did I do this", and then you look down at the amazing gift that is causing all of this and you think " that's why". You can't help but smile, because while its one of the hardest times, its one of the shortest,and before you know it, they are too big to carry around all day because they don't want to be put down, or they fall asleep on you, and you physically cant move because they don't weigh 4kg's anymore.

No matter how many times I am called it, and no matter if the sentence starts with "no", hearing your child call you Mom, Mum, Mummy, Mama, is fantastic. It makes me happy. While the late night "MUMMY" calls are not great at the time, the fact that he wants me, and calls for me, outweighs my tiredness. I think its one of the first words kids say when they learn to talk, and once they have learnt to associate you with the word, it sticks. I love it, I love being called it, and I love the little person that calls me it!

I don't care if I don't buy anything for myself ever again, as long as my child has everything he wants and needs, and is happy, then so I am. This should be the definition of a mother, its so true, and is something I strive to live by on a daily basis. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my child happy.

Are there any phrases, or quotes that sum up motherhood for you, and make you happy?

  2. I've never had the pleasure of being called Mom - though I always hoped that one day I would. What I have been called by a tiny little voice quite some time ago was Nem - and to this day, it's the sweetest thing I've ever been called. I helped my sister raise her oldest daughter from birth on. I was Auntie M, but the first time she ever said my name it came out Nem. I loved it. Still do! It made my heart soar. :) Now that baby girl has a baby girl of her own. We've decided that I should be called Great Nem. But whatever she calls me, however it comes out, I will love and adore it just the same. I may not be a real mom, but I entirely get your beautiful post and love it. Thank you so much for sharing it with #1Word today! :)

  4. These are all great quotes - so much truth in them. I could never have imagined feeling that way but it's so true that everything changes when you hold that baby in your arms...and it keeps changing ever after.

  5. Great quotes Claire! Love them all, especially Riki Lake's quote! I was a single mama for 7 years, it was the hardest thing to do - raising my daughter on my own -however it is the greatest thing - because it made me a strong, independent woman and the mother I am today! :)
