Funny birthday wishes for mom

  • A birthday is a day that should be full of joy, so laughter is heavily encouraged. Keep your mom’s sense of humour in mind as you compose your fun-filled greeting.
  • Like a fine wine, we get better with age. Or maybe we just feel better about our age with a little bit of wine. Anyways, happy cake day!
  • Happy birthday to someone who is smart, talented, pretty, creative, and fabulous. I love that we’re so much alike.
  • It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer. Congrats on your success.
  • At least you’re not as old as you will be next year. Happy birthday.
  • Time to tell you the truth, mom, you don’t bake the best cookies in the world. But you do give the best hugs, kisses, back scratches, care when I’m sick, support when I’m down and home to come back to. Your Thanksgiving turkey isn’t too bad either. Happy birthday.
  • Just like you’re not supposed to have a favourite child, I’m not supposed to have a favourite parent. But between you and me, let’s just say dad didn’t get as great of a gift as you’re getting this year. Happy birthday, Mom. From your unofficial favourite child.
  • Here’s to hoping all your candles this year don’t set off the fire alarm. Your birthday is gonna be lit.
  • You may be getting older Mom, but think on the bright side, you’ll at least always be younger than Dad. Happy birthday.
  • Just imagine the things you’d want to hear on your birthday and then pretend I said them. Love you, mom.
  • Your birthday outshines all the other 364 days of the year. Happy birthday, mom.
  • If things really do get better with age, then you’re nearing perfection. I bet it feels as good as it looks. Happy birthday, mom.
  • For your birthday, how about a fruit salad instead of cake? A fruit salad with mostly grapes – no, all grapes. Fermented grapes. Wine it is.
  • I can barely keep up with everyone’s birthdays these days, but you better believe I’d never forget yours. Happy birthday to the best mom there is.
  • A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the best woman in the world was born. Happy birthday, mom.
