6 Things Moms Should Say Everyday

Dear Diary,

My mom vocabulary is filled with words to uplift and inspire. I pour positive messages into my daughter, praying the words will take root in her heart and her mind. As she reflects on the things I say, she’ll grow into a beautiful, confident and intelligent adult. Each day, we engage in thoughtful conversations–I ask her lots of questions, and she shares the new things she discovered at preschool. She even repeats some the phrases I’ve used in the past.

As moms, we always remember to encourage our children. But at times, we forget to encourage ourselves. It’s important to remind ourselves that we’re awesome, amazing and magnificent moms. That’s why I teamed up with some of my favorite mom bloggers and asked them what they think new moms should say. Whether you’re a new mom or a veteran parent, these quotes will give you the boost you need to push through exhaustion, illness or any other obstacle along your journey through motherhood.

We came up with this FREE MOM PRINTABLE  6 Things Every Mom Should Say Every Day.

6 Things Moms Should Say Everyday

Here’s how you should use the printable:


You’ll need one for your home and one for your office. Print out extra copies to share/send to moms in your circle.


Cut along the dotted lines to create six squares.


Post messages throughout your space. For instance, you can tape a square on your bathroom mirror, your car’s dashboard or your bulletin board at work. You can also carry the cards in your purse, or attach them to gifts you send to friends and family.


Read the messages daily. Memorize the ones that inspire you the most–you can call upon the statement when you’re not near your post it notes. You can also add your own. If you have favorite quotes, print them out and add them to our collection.

Hey DFTM Fam–What other things do you think moms should say everyday? Hope you’ll join our journey of uplifting others, one saying at a time!

Not long ago, Heather Hopson hosted a television show in the Cayman Islands. Today, she's back home writing a different kind of story as a new mom. In her 15 years working as a professional journalist, this by far is her best assignment! Growing up, she dreamed of becoming Oprah Winfrey. She was the features editor for her school’s newspaper and a teen talk show host for her city’s most popular radio station. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Michigan State University. After graduation, she worked as a television producer and reporter at CBS, NBC and Fox affiliates throughout the U.S. Instead of heading to Chicago to join Ms. Winfrey on her set, she bought a plane ticket to the Cayman Islands instead. She arrived five days before a category five hurricane! She lived in paradise for seven years, hosted an award-winning television show and traveled the globe with a government delegation. She also served on the board of directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters and spearheaded a Send a Kid to Camp campaign. Then, she relocated to Washington, D.C. to obtain a teaching certification and instruct 8th grade reading at a high needs middle school. She later returned to her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA to raise her daughter Caitlynn, now 4-years-old. During her 10-month-stint as a stay-at-home mom, Caitlynn inspired her to create this blog, and Diary of a First Time Mom was born on Mother’s Day 2012. Two years later, she expanded the family to include 20+ writers. Currently, Heather serves as the communications director at Allies for Children. In addition, she is the owner of Motor Mouth Multimedia, which ranked #49 in Startup Nation’s Home-Based 100 Competition sponsored by Discover Card and Sam’s Club. Recently, The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments selected Heather to receive an Emerging Black Artist award to develop Diary of a First Time Mom.
