Mother's Day. A holiday usually reserved for hugs, kisses, reminiscent moments, and catering to every single thing mom wants during those 24 hours. Tie in some cooked meals, a spa day, and a few laughs, and the day automatically becomes the success that you dreamed it to be. If your mom is anything like mine, the latter of the previously mentioned is her absolute favorite. My mom is quite the jokester, so having a batch of funny Mother's Day quotes handy always works in mine and my siblings favor.
While picking up the perfect Mother's Day card to make her laugh is totally my specialty, my younger brother seems to have all the right jokes for the big day. Though majority of them are kind of dry and corny, it's because of those very reasons why my mom ends up finding them so funny. I'll still never understand why she laughs so hard at some of the things we say, but hey, if it makes her smile, I'll stick with it. While Mother's Day is the perfect setup for delivering the gifts mom has been asking for since the beginning of the year, giving her a few laughs to go along with it is always a major plus.
If being funny just isn't your thing, try using one of these 15 quotes to make everyone laugh at this year's Mother's Day celebration.
