How to wish happy birthday mom

happy birthday mom

It’s easy to get confused when writing a message for mom. A lot of people say it’s the thought that counts, but if you get caught up in your sentiments and neglect some basic rules, your message might accidentally come off rude or even offensive! So how do you wish “happy birthday” to mom without putting your foot in it?

1- First, keep it short. Unless mom is your best friend and you have a lot to say, brevity is key.

2- Second, avoid any negative words or topics. No need to bring up how she drives you crazy sometimes (especially on your birthday).

3- Finally, steer clear of the overused phrases like “I hope you have a great day” or “I hope you feel better”. Mom might be expecting some originality.

How about writing ‘happy birthday mom’, instead?

You can make it more personal by adding a little anecdote, like how you remember the time she took you to see your first movie, or when she helped with last-minute school projects. If you’re thinking that this might come off as sappy or exaggerated, you’re probably right. That’s why it’s best to keep the message short!
