Our top Mother's Day messages and wishes

Here are our top 10 best Mother's Day messages:

#1. Mum of young kids

"Dear Mum, you're an amazing mother, mama bear, bestie, superwoman, and cheerleader. There's nowhere I'd rather be than my mother's arms. I can't wait to grow up and old with you."

#2. Mum of teens

"They say one will understand why animals eat their young when you have teens. Not you, though, you're blessed with the best kids in existence. We're proud to have the best Mum. Please don't actually eat us."

#3. Mum of adults

"To say that you're a wonderful mother is an understatement. You were our caring mama bear, our cheerleader, our personal comedian, our drill sergeant, and our prison guard (just joking). You and your unconditional love turned me into the independent woman (or man) I am today."

#4. Grandmother

"My dear Grandma, Happy Mother's Day! It's always a good day when you're around. We love all the hugs and kisses, not to mention a bit of silliness. Thanks for spoiling us rotten."

#5. Mother-in-law

"To my wonderful mother-in-law, thanks for raising the best son/daughter on the planet. You deserve an award and a glass of wine. Here's to you this Mother's Day."

#6. Stepmother

"When it comes to mother figures, there's no denying that you're the best of the best. We laugh, we cry, we enjoy good times together. We're lucky to have you in the family."

#7. New mother

"The journey you're on can be a hard one, though you make it look easy. Thanks for being a first and forever friend – there for me at 2 am, 3 am, 4 am, and 5 am! I hope you'll be my best friend when I grow older, and I can't wait for all the adventures we'll have together."

#8. Great-grandmother

"We're forever grateful for you, our dear great-grandmother. It was from you that a Mother's love grew into grandma/grandpa, bringing each of those that followed into existence. What a beautiful family you've grown, and what a beautiful woman you are inside and out."

#9. Mother figure

"You may not be my mother, but you've done so much for me that you deserve a wonderful Mother's Day, a glass of wine, and a long soak in the tub. Here's to you and your loving heart."

#10. Mother-to-be

"As we celebrate your first Mother's Day, the future looks bright, happy, and full of love. You're already such a wonderful mother. We couldn't love you more and we're so excited for you to raise your own children."
