Motherhood is always on our minds at Mama Said, so we were so excited to hear so much about our favorite topic at the DNC last week! Check out some of our favorite motherhood-related highlights below!
First Lady Michelle Obama:
First Lady Michelle Obama: "You see, Hillary understands that the President is about one thing and one thing only-- it's about leaving something better for our kids. That's how we've always moved this country forward-- by all of us coming together on behalf of our children-- folks who volunteer to coach that team, to teach that Sunday school class because they know it takes a village."

The Mothers of the Movement:
Geneva Reed-Veal: "I'm here with Hillary Clinton because she is a leader and a mother who will say our children's names."
Lucia McBath: "She isn't afraid to sit at a table with grieving mothers and bear the full force of our anguish. She doesn't build walls around her heart. Not only did she listen to our problems, she invited us to become part of the solution."
Sybrina Fulton: "This isn't about being politically correct. It's about protecting our children... Hillary is the one mother who can ensure our movement will succeed."

Chelsea Clinton: "I’ve seen her holding the hands of mothers, worried about how they’ll feed their kids, worried about how they’ll get them the healthcare they need. I’ve seen my mother promising to do everything she could to help. I’ve seen her right after those conversations getting straight to work, figuring out what she could do, who she could call, how fast she could get results. She always feels, like there isn’t a moment to lose, because she knows that for that mother, for that family there isn’t."

Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton: "Standing here as my mother's daughter, and my daughter's mother, I'm so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too-- because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone. When there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit."
