If you open up Instagram on Mother’s Day, you’re sure to find pic after pic of your friends praising their lovely moms. It’s a sweet way to show your favorite person in the world how much you care with a social media shoutout, and it only takes two simple steps. The first step is to find a cute throwback photo of you and your mom together, or a recent selfie of the two of you hanging out. Once that’s chosen, use one of these Instagram captions for mom and daughter pics to express just how much she means to you.

It’s so easy to praise your fave person online, you’ll not only want to celebrate her on the second Sunday in May, but every other day of the year as well. If you live long distance from your family, posting on the ‘Gram is a nice way to feel instantly connected. With all the #TBT pics you have from family vacays over the years, a little mother appreciation post is a great way to finally share them all. Plus, it just feels nice to share the love. The only problem is coming up with the right words to encapsulate all that you’re feeling.

On Instagram, you’ll want to keep it short and sweet, which is hard to do when you could seriously write a whole novel about how much you adore your mom. To keep things moving along, just use one of these mom captions for Instagram. A direct but sweet caption for mom from her beloved (and definitely favorite) daughter will perfectly demonstrate how much you care. You’ll even have room at the end to make it personal with some cute inside joke hashtags and your favorite emojis.
