26 Cute Mother & Daughter Quotes That Define Your Best Friendship

I don't remember the exact moment when my mom became my best friend. I remember being little and needing her and my dad for everything. I wish I didn't remember the middle, but I do all too well — my irritable teen years, when I spoke more out of snide remarks, sarcasm, and eye rolls than in kindness and gratitude. (Oh, how I wish I could rewrite those years.) I even remember heading off to college and feeling so homesick. Somehow, between then and now, my mom became my best friend (and my dad, too, but that's a different story). Our amazing bond has flourished, and I am so grateful for it. Mother's Day is right around the corner on Sunday, May 13, and I can't wait to celebrate her by posting cute mother and daughter quotes on Instagram.

If you're blessed to also call your mom your best friend, you know just how precious your bond is. On Mother's Day, and every day for that matter, it's important to celebrate that — a sweet reminder of how grateful you are to have her in your life. These 26 quotes describe all the feels.
