In Honor of Mother's Day: Do you get along with your mom? How often does she call, e-mail, or text you? Will you see her on Mother's Day (Sunday, May 10, 2009) Did you get her anything for Mother's day? Do you get along better now than when you were younger or are things worse now? If your mom is deceased, what three things do you miss about her the most? *~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~* I'll go first. :smile: For the most part yes, but we have had a few volatile arguments. Also both of us are prone to stomp off and slam doors for effect. :redface: Well, I've been the live in caregiver to the folks since June 2007 so we speak every day. We have always been close though, (perhaps too much so) and one of us would call the other at least 4 times a week when we lived apart. You betcha! I might even go to church with her as she has been begging me for over a year now. Not yet, :redface: she's 78.5 yrs. old she has everything she needs. I may get her the Darius Rucker country CD cause she loves country music and bluegrass. Pretty much the same. We argue more now, but we are still quite close. We argue because she still sees me as the baby girl and therefore an idiot. We haven't quite made a comfortable transition in the role reversal or care paradox. I dread the day my mother or father passes away. I'm sure I will be one of those people that spirals off into a deep depression for months or starts binge drinking to cope.
