Motherhood is an adventure. Children are messy, needy, exhausting, germ-infested little carrier monkeys. On their good days. They are also the best part of my life.
Growing up I always wanted to be a mom. Every other goal was secondary. Now that I am a mom I love it. But it’s hard some days. Harder than I expected. Some days I need a reminder that I’m doing ok.
Sometimes I need to be reminded that motherhood isn’t perfect or easy, it’s just worth it.
I put together this list of my favorite quotes about motherhood. These mom quotes help me to cut myself some slack, regroup a little, and get back in there. I hope they help you too.

My Favorite Mom Quotes
Motherhood is messy, and challenging, and crazy, and sleepless, and giving, and still unbelievably beautiful. -Rachel Martin
I love this quote because it reminds me that motherhood isn’t supposed to be perfect. It’s supposed to be difficult and hard sometimes. It’s not always going to be easy, but that’s ok! I wouldn’t trade it for an easier life and reminding myself of that helps me ride out those tougher days.
There is no such thing as a mom who has it all together. -Unknown
This is one of the mom quotes I go to when I have been on Facebook too much. Facebook tends to show us the highlight reels of everyone’s life. We only see their good days and their proudest moments.
I myself am guilty of only sharing the things that I like for everyone to see. I’m not posting about barely making it out the door on time to a soccer game just to remember I forgot to feed everyone breakfast. Neither is anyone else. That’s why I like this quote. It reminds me that even if they aren’t posting it to Facebook, all of us moms have areas where we struggle.
I don’t have to be perfect to be a good parent. -Unknown.
This quote was kind of a revelation for me. Sometimes I feel like if I don’t do it all right then it means I’m failing. It means I’m letting my children down in some way. I love them so much and only want the best for them. That includes the best mom.
The reality is they have me. I may not always be the best mom. But I love them more than anyone else in the world and I will always try my best for them. That means I won’t always be a perfect mom, but at least I can still be a good mom.
A mother’s love is whole no matter how many times it’s divided. -Unknown
I find this quote helpful because I have three kids and I can’t always give each of my kids the same amount of time and attention all of the time. They are each at unique stages of development and they each have unique needs. This quote reminds me that I love each of my kids in different ways at different times. And that’s ok.
If you are a mom, you are a superhero, period. -Rosie Pope
I love this quote because it’s true! I’m a superhero and so are you! Period! Being a mom is not easy. It’s a lot of work! Hard, exhausting work! But we get up to do it day in and day out. We keep showing up every day no matter what.
The world doesn’t always recognize the strength that takes. Our family doesn’t always recognize the strength that takes. So sometimes I use this quote to recognize it for myself.
For all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you. -Unknown
This is my by far my favorite quote because it’s so true. It’s truer than I could have ever imagined when I was first pregnant.
Being a mom is the best thing I will ever do. I really believe that. Sometimes when I’m feeling overwhelmed by all of the responsibilities that go along with it, I forget that.
On those days I come back to this quote and I remind myself: Being a mom is what I chose, and I would choose it again. Every time.
