10 Inspiring Quotes to Get You Through The Day as a Parent

There are days when parenting is a sweet, simple joy. We play with blocks, the kids happily eat their dinner, and we finish the day with a sunset saunter to the park.

And then there are the rest of the days. The ones where I collapse into bed, exhausted from another day among many of diaper changes, PB&Js, and backseat fights, all while trying to complete a sentence with my husband.

I don’t despair because I know these days don’t last forever—but sometimes I’m tempted to. Along with books, I so appreciate quotes about parenting (and life in general) from wiser people, because they give me a quick battery recharge during my quotidian tasks of running a family.

Here are some of my favorite words of wisdom that help me be a better mother (even if they’re not directly related to parenting):
