Are you and your mom best friends??

I have realized that not alot of people have this relationship with their mom anymore...So if you and your mom are best friends let it be known!!

  • YES! We weren't always but since I've grown up and many things in my life have changed including my realization that she really does have my best interests at heart I now know that she was and is my best friend. I almost lost her in 2004 due to Ovarian Cancer and that just ripped me apart. I'm an only child, my dad left before I was born, my grandmother died in 2008, and my aunt just died 9-25. My mom is pretty much all I have left besides extended family that I only see at weddings or funerals and now my own little family and in laws. I LOVE MY MOTHER. She's the strongest person I know.

  • That would be no. We were friends for a while after a really rough first 20 yrs. Now, I'm the parent and it really sucks to see your parents deteriorate.

  • No, I am not really. I mean I talk to her but I think I am a little closer to my dad and my MIL.

  • Not at all. My mom walked out on our family when I was an infant leaving my father totally alone with a 10 year old, a 6 year old & a 6 month old.

  • No, she was competive with me and kept wanting people to think she was my "sister" and how hot and young she looked. Gross.

  • No. I can;t stand her and my entire family. She always played favorites and still does.

  • I love my mom and see or talk to her everyday, but she is not my best friend. My mom can have very strong opinion and I tend not to tell her everything. I am actually much closer to my dad, but even than I don't tell him everything.
