Add a little humor to those texts and social media posts honoring your mother-in-law’s birthday.

  • I’d have made you a birthday cake, but your child says that my baking isn’t “quite as good as mom’s cooking just yet” Sometimes, it pays off to be second best, but we are still wishing you the very best as you bake away on your special day.
  • While I didn’t pick my mate because of their adorable, awesome, smart, and completely perfect mom, you sure did help seal the deal. Much love to you as you turn the page to another age!
  • I couldn’t think of any other woman I’d rather fight with my significant other about so much. With all my love, wishing you happiness today and for many more birthdays to come.
  • Birthdays remind us that you’re never too young to start estate planning, which means that all the lovely birthday texts I’ve ever sent get me major brownie points in the mother-in-law book, right?
  • Thank you for not selling your child to a circus all those years ago because I’d have hated to do life without a MIL just like you. Hope that your B-Day is completely over the big top with fun and joy.
  • You know you’re getting old when you start actually liking your daughter/son in law. Here’s to another birthday and year of progress;)

Happy Birthday. Enjoy every moment.
  • I could’ve gotten stuck with a horrible in law mother living next door. Instead, I get a wonderful one, but I have to send birthday wishes from afar.
  • I’m not sure if I’m happy or not that you age in a way that people wonder if you’re the MIL, spouse, or sibling in my family tree. Still, here’s to another year of not looking your age!
  • Always be nice to your kid’s spouse because they’ll help pick your nursing home. Keep up the great work birthday girl; you’re currently set for a nice Floridian retirement village with cabana boys feeding you applesauce through a straw.
  • To the coolest MIL ever, you better get busy celebrating. I’d hate to send someone over for a birthday spanking with this many licks in order.
