There are a thousand things that fencing moms do for us, from scheduling lessons to arranging our gear to cheering us on when we are competing. Our fencing moms make our world work, and we are so deeply thankful for them that we know we can’t repay their generosity and guidance. Fencing moms step in every day to keep fencers training, in a thousand little ways that we most probably don’t even know about. There is true magic around moms!
Though there is not ever a way to totally repay them for all that they do, we do try our best. This year, we decided to give them some jokes that might make them laugh and also let them know how much we see all the things they’re doing. Though we might not say it enough, we appreciate our fencing moms every day of the year.
We are not utterly original in our jokes, and some of them are free improvisations based on timeless classics, but hey, we righteously stole them at a swordpoint. 🙂
Now for the laughs!

Fencing mom: I’ll think about it.

What kids do when they can’t find their fencing gear:
Fencing moms. You spend the first few years telling your kids not to poke each other with sticks, then they start fencing and you spend the next decade telling them to poke each other with more accuracy.
My kids make me yell “Let’s go!” and “Come on!” so often that I feel like I’d be a great fencing coach.

Why do fencing moms go to the eye doctor twice? Because they have eyes in the back of their head.

Motherhood is amazing, but have you ever had the house alone on a Saturday while the kids were away at a fencing competition?

What does a fencing mom use to cover the leftovers before she puts them in the fridge after dinner?

No piece of fencing gear is ever really lost. . . unless mom can’t find it.
Omelet my awesome fencing mom sleep in today.
What’s the difference between a superhero and a fencing mom? Superheroes are only heroes sometimes. Fencing moms are heroes all the time.
