Celebrate Your Little Guy With These 12 Instagram Captions For National Sons Day

On March 4, boy moms and dads everywhere will have the chance to celebrate their favorite little guy(s). If you're planning to express your love and adoration on social media, consider starting a list of potential Instagram captions for National Sons Day. Whether your boy is rowdy, snuggly, or as silly as they come, you want to say something that honors and celebrates their sweet personality.

Friends on social media will sometimes (okay, oftentimes) joke about posting tributes about their kids online... especially if they can't even read. Even so, documenting these days as a mom in a place where they will remain forever is like your own digital scrapbook. Just because your little one might not see the post on National Sons Day doesn't mean he won't go back to look at it when he's older. (Plus, you'll also be able to go back in time and remember the "little" years once they're not-so-little anymore.)

You can certainly write out a totally original post that declares your love for your guy in your own words. It doesn't get much more personal than that! However, if you're not one for words or feel uneasy about sharing too much online, it's okay to borrow sentiments from other people. Here are 12 Instagram captions for you to choose from to help you properly celebrate your boy.
