Back-to-school time brings up so many different emotions. On one hand, you knowhow much your child will learn and grow over the course of this new year. On the other hand... who swapped your baby for this bigkid over night?! Don't worry, mama — you're not the first one working through all the emotions in your inventory, and some back-to-school quotes for moms will help you feel optimistic, inspired, and ready for the first day of school. Maybe they'll help you celebrate, or maybe they'll simply help you get through it.
Most importantly, don't try to talk yourself out of the mess of emotions you might be feeling. Some moms can't wait to get their children out of their hair. Some moms are vicariously excited, thinking all of the cool new stuff and sweet new friends their children will make. Other moms are devastated, because growing up is bittersweet. And, of course, some moms fit into all of those categories. If you're anything like me — a self-described "quote hoarder" with Pinterest boards and phone camera rolls filled with poignant and applicable gems — then you'll enjoy the following list. Whether they sum up exactly how you feel, offer a totally new perspective, or light a little fire as the school year gets closer... get ready to screenshot.
