As we celebrate mothers day, here are some of the best motherhood quotes from past Lagosmums mums of the month. Please read and be encouraged and inspired!
“I truly understood God’s love for me when I became a mother. It’s like something just clicked. His absolute unconditional love. My advice to new mums is that it is okay to take your time. It is okay to take your time to get back and feel like your “old” self.”
Marcy Dolapo Oni, Mum of the month – March 2019
Ha motherhood! No one I think is ever fully prepared for it. I’d say motherhood has taught me to be more patient and understanding. To share every bit of me without reservation. To make someone else’s happiness and well being my priority and primary concern
Christina Chukwu, Mum of the month – February 2019
Motherhood has taught me to just keep being loving and to keep using the right words to impact my children’s lives.
Yetunde Shorters, Mum of the month – January 2019
One can only give what you have, so I prioritize taking care of myself spiritually, mentally and physically so I can give my best self to family and work
Mojolaoluwa Aderemi-Makinde, Mum of the month – December 2018
Motherhood has taught me that I am eternally responsible for someone, and never to depend on anyone. That also, I have the major share of the responsibility of caring for my child. I think Motherhood has also cured my procrastination spirit. Haleluya!
Morenike Olonisakin, Mum of the month November 2018
Motherhood has made me very patient. The truth of the matter is that it not only changed my character, it also changed my whole life because LagosHouseWife came into reality through my experiences as a mother. It was when I had him that my vision and my purpose in life became clear.
Rayo Abe (LagosHouseWife), Mum of the month – September 2018
Motherhood has changed everything for good for me. It is the most satisfying job I have ever had. There is no one-way to parenting; what works for me might not work for the next mum.
Tosin Rufai, Mum of the month – July 2018
You know, there’s no blueprint for being a great mum. You can be the best mum you can be in terms of following all the best mum books but it’s still the grace of God.
Kafayat Shafau Ameh, Mum of the month -June 2018
Motherhood has taught me to be more patient and has given me the greatest responsibility of all time. Knowing that these 3 depend on me for their happiness, survival and everything else can sometimes be daunting, but also it keeps me very much on my toes.
Nike Majekodunmi, Mum of the month – May 2018
As a parent, you might know your child the best, but you don’t have all the answers. Ask God for his wisdom and guidance. Remember, family is important! Spend quality time with them.
Yetty Willims, Mum of the month -April 2018
Motherhood has been an interesting, rewarding and beautiful experience. The journey of motherhood has made me so much more tolerant, patient and understanding.
Funmi Gombe, Mum of the month – March 2018
“Being a mother has taught me a few vital life lessons that have changed me for the better. Firstly, time waits for no one, make the best of it, make it work and get things done. Secondly, stop dreaming of the future and live in the now. But above all, being a mother has taught me how to love… I have learned to love people unconditionally”
Leslie Okoye, Mum of the month, February 2018
Every woman, every mother needs a support system because you cannot do it alone. A woman has various components that make up her life and her family still remains the most important
Osayi Alile, Mum of the month – January 2018
” I never prayed as hard and as fervently as I do now that I am a mother. I want to live long solely because I want to be there for my kids in all the ways that they will need me. This is the single biggest change that motherhood has brought to my life”
Aishetu Fatima Dozie, Mum of the month, December 2017
What do you love most about motherhood?
“Being called “mummie”, the kisses and love I get from my children, they telling me how special I am makes me feel so good”
Crystal Chigbu, Mum of the month, November 2017
“Parenthood or motherhood doesn’t come with a manuscript so basically winging it through and learning in the process. Another thing I love about motherhood is the unconditional love. That is priceless. I know for sure my kids love me to the moon and back and that alone makes everything alright”
Tewa ONASANYA, Mum of the month, July 2017
“Loving and raising children builds character, strength, makes you Worship and praise God differently, it makes you view the world in a different light. The ups and downs will edit who you are as a person but every part the journey is a blessing”
Adedamola Ladejobi a.k.a AskDamz, Mum of the month, January 2017
“When you find yourself privileged to be a carrier of a child, you actually have to take that seriously, and keep asking God, what is the purpose of this child. What do you want me to prophesy into this child? Who is this child supposed to be and how can I guide this child in that direction? That’s me as a mum”
Lami Philips, Mum of the month, November 2016
“To be honest, some days are better than others and I accept that I will never think I have done enough, will never think I have thought of my babies enough, prayed for them enough, nurtured them enough, trained and taught them enough, listened to them enough, spent time with them enough. I am committed to parenting to the best of my abilities and I will always, always, always love my babies”
Amaka Benson,Mum of the month, September 2016
“My biggest lesson is that to raise an excellent child, you have to be an excellent person. You cannot give what you do not have. Children do what you do and not what you say. A support system is extremely important. I often tell mothers that no one gets a reward for raising a child all by herself, but you get a reward of raising a well-rounded child”.
Sola Oguche-Agudah, Mum of the month -July 2016
“On motherhood: Find what works for you as a parent and stick to it because the home is the best place and the one place for children to learn the values parents would like to impact. Be able to define what kind of child you want”.
Bola Balogun, Mum of the month – May 2016
“As a mother, you have a sense of fulfilment every time you put a smile on the face of your little one. Also the amazing love that comes with the little kisses and hugs, everything that comes with motherhood is superb”.
Omoronike Bello, Mum of the month – February 2016
“Motherhood is teaching me how to be selfless, how to prioritize, how to plan and how to care. I am learning everyday. Selflessness is the biggest lesson, I want to sleep but my Tito wants to play, Tito wins!”
SisiYemmie, Mum of the month – November 2015
“I love the unconditional love, hearing them say “mummy!” and watching them grow and change every day. Motherhood has been the best thing and also the most challenging thing to ever happen to me. I didn’t realize I had this much love in me and I’ve grown to be a better person because of my children and what I want to be for them”.
Bola Onada Sokunbi, Mum of the month – September 2015
“Motherhood has taught me to love unconditionally and completely. Of course it has not been smooth sailing, motherhood comes with its own challenges from teething to an unexplained fever, worrying about when she will start to walk, just generally worrying too much about things that don’t make sense”
Mrs Lilian Odim, Mum of the month – July 2015
I love watching my children’s developmental stages. How they go from being a newborn to achieving different milestones almost daily is a true miracle!
Foluso Gbadamosi, Mum of the month – June 2015
“Motherhood is the most heart-warming job of all times. I just look at my children and my heart warms all over. In the midst of a bad day or a seemingly hopeless situation, the smiles of my children make me realise that life has been very good to me.
Dr Nkechi Olalere, Mum of the month – May 2015
“I see motherhood as a gift, a calling and a responsibility given to me by God to guide, protect, provide, empower and influence my children. To raise them up in the way of the Lord. Motherhood is a large part of who I am as a woman, and it has a great impact on every other aspect of my life”.
Aloted Omoba, Mum of the month – February 2015
“On motherhood -I love everything, from changing nappies to making him smile, even the torturous sleepless nights are not so bad when he looks up and gives you a smile”.
Tannaz Bahnam, Mum of the month – October 2012
“It’s just a beautiful thing to be a mum. I like to watch my children grow. This minute they can write A-B-C, and the next minute, they are asking what ‘revolution’ means”.
Joy Bewaji, Mum of the month – November 2011
“The greatest pleasure of motherhood for me is the sure, pure, undiluted love of my children. When they look at me and come up to me unprompted and say ‘mummy, I love you, you’re the best’. I tell you, nothing beats the rush I get out of this every time it happens”.
Tope Oshin Ogun, Mum of the month – October 2011
