Funny Answering Machine / Voicemail Sayings For Moms

Updated on January 30, 2012

Allot of people has got a kick out of me in the past for using my love for poetry and songwriting for answering machine messages.

Enough with the boring, fake voice recordings you had to cough and redo a dozen times. Just be yourself and let it out and even the bill collectors will have to smile.

Here are a few I've tried and suggested. You can add a melody and sing it or just dramatically quote it, what ever suites your fancy.

I know they are silly, but it's just for fun. You can even make up your own too.


I'm sorry I missed your call. You see I was out having a ball.

Changing diapers, picking up toys, feeding my hungry little girls and boys.

Daddy's busy I hope you understand.

"Just leave a message, catch us when you can!"

( Have kids playing noise in background to make it more funny:.)


I've been meeting myself coming and going, working all day without any showing.

My house was hit by a baby tsunami. Guess who I am? " I'm a mommy!"


Sorry I am currently busy at this time. I will spare you the details, no plans to whine.

All I can say is, " I am not my own, so just leave me a message after the tone."

(Have kids scream in background. )


( Sing to the tune of "Happy Birthday to You")

I'm a busy little bee, in a pile of laundry

So leave me your dido's, while I tend to my kiddo's.


I am just simply tied up at this time. Just leave me a message and I will call you back as soon as I can get my voice switched back to sweet mode.


Mommy's too busy to answer your call,

I just saw the writing on the wall.

A great big yellow crayon smile,

Scrubbing will take me a little while.

Join the rest " leave me your whine,"

I'll be back to give you a line.


Sorry I missed your call, my last button was disabled a short while ago.

Please leave a message and I will get back with you after I've restarted and refreshed.

I plan on clearing the cookies down to the last defragment. If I've not replied soon, worst-case scenario, "it's a virus."
