Being a Mum means wiping tears, removing stains and losing sleep. Being a Mum means sharing laughs, being proud and making memories together. For all the sons and daughters wanting to show some appreciation for their Mums, and for all the Mums wanting to celebrate the best bits of being a Mum – we encouraged you all to share your best #MumMoments for Mother’s Day. Here’s what you came up with.

For the proud moments

Anna Edwards via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is when I pick my child up from pre-school and every time he shouts “MUMMY” with a big smile on his face and runs up to hug me!”

Stacey Mason via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is when I sit back and watch my girl play, how clever she is and that she is growing into such a polite and sweet little girl. I’ve never been so proud.”

Heidi Leah Peter via Facebook: “I LOVE being a Mummy. I LOVE that feeling that you feel whilst looking at them in awe. Just WOW! Love? Pride? Amazement? I don’t know what that feeling’s called but I know you know what I mean. Happy Mother’s Day!”

Natasha Ferry via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is every day I get to spend with my little boy! It’s every smile, every laugh which just turns my whole insides to mush, it’s every new milestone he reaches – crawling the most recent. It’s every cry he makes and the way he snuggles in close during his afternoon nap. It’s the way he smiles up at me through the world’s longest thickest lashes covering his bright blue eyes during a 2am feed – he’s just eight months old but I don’t remember a moment he wasn’t here with us; he truly made us a family, he made me whole!”

Ella Anderson via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is her learning to take her first steps after suffering a severe stroke – so proud of her.”

Katie Walters via Facebook: “When I had my second child (my daughter) and my son was just brilliant at being a big brother! #MumMoment”

For the nostalgic moments

Katie French via Facebook shares a photo from the 80’s of her trying to escape out of her Mother’s car: “I was a handful as a child and now my mum always laughs when my daughter is being naughty. Payback!”

Maggie Bacon via Facebook shares this touching moment: “My #MumMoment was finding the first Mother’s Day card I had written on by myself. I was four and had just learnt to write my name, the card had a duck on it. I found it in my Mum’s wardrobe just after she died aged 89… I miss her so much.”

For the silly moments

Michaela Atkins via Facebook: “My mum loves to remind me every Mother’s Day that when I was about six I gave her a glass of martini and two pickled eggs for her morning brekkie treat.”

Ailsa Sheldon via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is muddy adventures outside with the kids!”

Lauren‏ via Twitter: “When she was meeting my boyfriend’s family for the first time at a BBQ and she got stuck in a chair! #MumMoment”

Tracey Druce via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is to remember you’re not always just a Mum, you can have fun too! Always a big kid!”

Gill Russell via Facebook: “My mum once used an air freshener instead of a deodorant. It was completely obvious to everyone but her at the party! #MumMoment”

Wayne Bishop via Facebook: “Every time I see my Mum is a memory to remember no matter what we do #MumMoment.”

Hannah Smith via Facebook: “My #MumMoment happens every time my Mum calls me up for a chat out of the blue.”

For the selfless moments

Alex Stuart Pearson via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is when she gave me and my fiancé an engagement gift of some money so we could afford to move out even though I know she misses having me at home.”

Lynn Doe via Facebook: “My Mum raised seven of us and was married to my dad for 50 years till he passed away. She is not too well now so it’s our turn to look after her and show her just how much she means to us all and how much she is loved.”

Carly Wright via Facebook: “My Mum has been amazing since an accident left me spinal injured. I was travelling Australia at the time and to see her walking into my hospital room was the greatest feeling. The journey to get to me from England was stressful for her and to spend two months waiting for me to get well enough to travel home was more than I could ever ask. She is an angel.”

Bev Davies via Facebook: “My mum does so much to help me and my husband as we both have severe health problems. She does everything from cooking to cleaning, washing to ironing and collecting medical supplies. She takes our daughter places we can’t go and is a full-time teacher for children with special needs. She is 70 years old. I don’t know how she does it.”

For the special moments

Priscilla Stubbs via Facebook: “My Mum meeting her first great great grandson for the first time, age difference of 100 years! #MumMoment”

Sarah Jane Capps via Facebook: “My favourite #MumMoment was on my Wedding Day where she walked me down the aisle & gave me away.”

Sally Angel via Facebook: “My #MumMoment is when my Mum was with me when I had my little girl and the look on her face when she held her! Priceless!”

Gayatri Gogoi via Facebook: “My favourite #MumMoment was seeing how proud my mum was of me at my graduation last year!”

Carena Tennant via Facebook: “Family holidays, worth every penny saved and spent.”
