How often do you talk to your mom? How far does she live? And do you consider your relationship close?

I can go well over a month or two without talking to my mom. I don't know if that's normal. She also has two grandkids, ages 3 & 9 months.

  • I talk to my mother daily, we live in seperate states and I feel we have a very close relationship. I don't always agree with what she's saying and sometimes she just plain pisses me off, but it is important to me to know she is involved in my DD's life.

  • I usually talk to my mom everyday or every other day. She lives about 10 minutes from me, but I really wouldn't consider our relationship close. We don't really see eye to eye on certain things, and she is not supportive at all. She basically just calls to talk like we are friends rather than mother and daughter. She doesn't even see my kids (her only grandchildren) that often...maybe once every other month or so.

  • My mom lives with me since my fathers death 25 years ago, she is 91 and now it is my turn to take care of her, we are very close. My daughter who is on her own talks to me on a daily basis, there is not a day that goes by that we do not talk although I don't see her everyday, she is 32.

  • My mom lives 2000 miles away. We speak at least once a week. I'm cautious about what information I share because she tends to be a bit controlling and patronizing.

  • I talk to my mother every other day or so. She lives back in California. We get along best from long distance.

  • My mother and father live about 2 hours away i speak to them both at least twice a week sometimes more. I am not as close to my mother as i am with my father but we do have a good relationship. My older sister and I are the only children and the grandchildren on both sides of the family, so we have a very close warm relationship. We also see on another about once a month sometimes more.

  • Ditto!! ^^ It's been 20 years since I moved away from home, and almost 7 years since I grew a spine, and I've never been happier. My mother lives over 300 miles away from me. She has a toxic personality!

  • My mom lives about 20 minutes from me in another city. We have a pretty good relationship, we talk on the phone every few days. We usually get together on the weekends, sometimes we will do something on a Saturday (like a day trip, or 'family fun day'), other times we will go to her house on Sunday and visit.
