How often do you see your parents?

How often do you see your parents?  How often do you talk with them?

I see my mom and step dad about once a week on average.  They live about 20 minutes down the highway.  I talk to my mom almost every day.  My dad and step mom live about 3 hours away and I only see them about 2-3 times a year.  We talk about once a month.

 Never they are both deceased. When they were alive and lived in town, maybe saw them 2 or 3 times week. Talked with them most days we didn't see them. When they moved to FL. We traveled every 3 months to visit. Spoke with them 1 or 2 times week.

It's great to have a good relationship with your parent. But I don't my mother sucks and I can't stand her anymore. Her bipolar has killed any little relationship we have ever had.

Every day. They live next door to me. They turned their store in to apartment units, sold their house, moved in to a unit, then I rented a unit & my sister rents another unit & before all of this even happened my other sister had built her house on the joining property. So I see them every single day, we share a front porch now, I moved in to the one next to theirs. 

Sounds odd I'm sure to others but kind of fun still. It won't always be like this. SO & I know we'll get a house etc. close by some day but we'll still see them all the time. The cousins are super close so my DD is very close to her cousins like they are siblings.

I'm so sorry. How long have they been gone?

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Do you have a good relationship with your dad?

Oh wow! That does sound kind of fun, but do you ever tire of them being right there all the time?
