    Re: How do you get along with your mother (or daughter)?

    Don't have any Daughters
    Never had a c lose relationship with my Mum.
    My ex's Mum, after a few rocky patches, ended up being my best friend When her son & I split up, he asked if he could move in with her for a couple of weeks till he got sorted out. She said no, if your here, B won't come & I can't manage without B She passed away in 95 & I still miss her.

    Re: How do you get along with your mother (or daughter)?

    My relationship with my Mum is fine now she lives interstate. Today's contact:

    (via text)
    Me: When does your flight land Monday?
    Mum: I dont know. Have to check. Info at home. On way to Toowoomba.
    Me: 1. I hope you're not texting and driving; 2. Why are you going to Toowoomba?
    Mum: You know how hard it is for me to text. Can't add driving into that mix. Going to see Jimmy
    Me: Who the f*ck is Jimmy?
    Mum: Jimmy is my cousin.
    Me: Let me reiterate. Who the F*CK is Jimmy?
    Mum: Your pop's sisters son.
    Me: Ah. So when does your flight land?
    Mum: Come off it Vic!
    Me: Hehehe - enjoy your day.

    I get on great with my Mum. I can talk to her about anything. She's the best!

    I'm sure they will, just keep communicating and remember the line you can't cross keeps changing as they get older. That's what I'm finding with my kids.

    Re: How do you get along with your mother (or daughter)?

    I am very close to my Mum. I ring her everyday, at the same time (even if Im at work), just to discuss our days. If I dont call her, she will message me to ask what's wrong!

    Well said! Maybe if more people thought of it that way we would have some very different responses to this thread.

    Being a mum I know how much I adore our kids and hope that it continues for life.... but it is interesting that the majority of responses here say that their relationships are ok but not really close. Now that I think of it most of my friends are not really that close to their mums either. Funny how things turn out. I like the saying "Your parents do the best job that they know how to", there is no parenting manual and no one is perfect...

    Re: How do you get along with your mother (or daughter)?

    Was never close to my Mother...always did try hard, perhaps that was the problem. I found her childish and irresponsible so many times.
    I envy those who have a friend in their Mother.
    I am beautiful inside and out so I should love myself unconditionally.

    Binx, I so love that convo you had with your mum..

    My mother was pretty cool if I swore when we were by ourselves..
    My brother would chastise me everytime I said something not proper though.. So in front of him I would call her by her christian name just to p him off. She would say to me * You are quite naughty to do that* then we would burst out laughing.. I loved having coffee with her at the shops and she so looked forward to it..I miss it now.
