I'm on a new computer and don't have pics on it yet. But my mom and I get along wonderfully now, even though we had rocky times when I was a teen. I didn't agree with some of her choices she made for us and the more teen like I got, the more she didn't know what to do with me. Now we talk forever when we get together, we are best friends for sure. I think just like she does funny enough. She is a country girl that never wants to go more then 30 miles from her house, so I always have to visit her. She is overly considerate with calling, she actually talks her self out of calling because she is afraid she will interrupt something. She fussed at me the other day for not calling sooner, I waited a little over a month because of being sick from not knowing I was exposed to black mold. And I'm pregnant so it was horrible. She told me to not let so much time go by before calling, silly woman.
I miss my mom. She had bipolar and she had her ups and downs, but I felt connected to her; we had good times being silly together. I feel like I have that same connection with my youngest DD. I was her birthday present, I was born 3 days after her birthday. Here is a picture of me with my mom. We were going out to a birthday dinner in 2002. I like to think of her looking down on us and smiling. She never got to meet my youngest son who was named in honor of her and my stillborn baby brother.

I had a horrible relationship with my mom growing up but for about 2 years now we've gotten really close
I have two moms and I love and respect them both. My bio mom and I get along well. I love her for making the choice to send me to my dads I don't know how I would have turned out if she hadn't. My step mom taught me things like how to be a lady, self respect, respect for others, and working for what you want. I love both my moms.
My mom and I are very close. She is my world. I am her only child, and was raised as such until my parents divorced when I was 13 and my dad told me that I have a half brother who I've only seen or spoken to once since, and a half sister who I've seen a couple times and she's on my FB but we aren't close.
Anyway, because of the lies and other things that my dad has done to me and my mom over the years, she is my favorite person in the world besides my kids and my husband. She has taught me everything good in my life, and I appreciate her so much for it.
This is her and me April 2012:
I love her so much and I would be/will be lost without her. We talk every day, and she lives in NC while we are in WA. She was here visiting me last April and we took this pic on my back steps :)
Hmm... Not sure where to start...
She will never be the mom or the grandma I want her to be. I struggle with this more at times than others. For the most part I have accepted she is who she is - and stopped being hurt over it.
She is not a bad person - just not very "mom" like...
My mom and I have never got along. I don't think we ever will. She treats me like scum and honestly I am quick sick of it.
I can understand that. Even if they are your parents, if a person does more bad than good in your life they don't belong in it.
Quoting offrdngal:My mother is a toxic person (I'm being extremely nice here) and I haven't talked to her, since '09. I won't ever speak to her again. My life is better without her in it.
