How often do you talk to your mother?

Therese, you sound like a strong person. I hope your sister gets better. Taking care of an elderly parent seems hella hard. My parents are going through that right now, too, so I see how hard it is. Good luck!
Don't worry Susan. If they are like my buddy's parents, they will come visit for a month or more in the summer, so they don't have to run the AC 24/7.
^5 hang in there
Or they are so nice to everyone else's kids but nasty to theirs. Hmph.
I understand fully. Some get dealt short deck. No guilt this weekend ok?
My mom passed away several years ago so I don't get to "talk" to her anymore. I still will talk to her and I hope that she hears me. I miss her each and every day. She wasn't just my mom but also my best friend.
Aw, Susan, I'm feeling sad on your behalf! I hope there are lots of trips to Florida in your future to see your parents in their new home. Maybe it'll be easier to see the positives when they get set up there and (hopefully) are happy. Good luck with spring piano recital!
That's awesome – let her know that some random person from the other side of the world is sending her good vibes. Excellent mothers and grandmothers need to be toasted!
It varies, but usually once a month or more. OMG I think I'd kill myself if I had to talk to her every day. We're adults with busy lives, and what the hell would you talk about every single day?
I don't associate with criminals.
My parents live next door. My Mum is hyper critical so I've got to be in the mood to feel inadequate. My Father is an angel so I suck it up and grab a beer and head next door a couple of times a week.
Happy Mothers' Day.
o/\o Lurker Girl!
And, by the way, she was a good grandparent. Loved me and treated me well. I think Mom was glad she was nice to me, but hard for her to watch after how horribly she treated her. I believe not all people should be parents. If they are toxic, sometimes you have to walk away.
Nearly everyday. But that's because I moved out of state and we only see each other a few times a year. The daily phone calls help to stay connected. I'm due to give birth to her first grandchild in August though…I have a feeling I'll be seeing a lot more of her. Won't be surprised if she starts looking for apartments here soon.
14 years, because she's a cunt. I feel like I have some serious animosity toward my gender because of my birth vehicle and her mother. I'm much more at ease around men.
Not as often as I should. The woman does my head in. I love her dearly, but I got a rough deal growing up and it's hard to get past some things.Saying that though, we just spent the weekend together. That'll do for about a month or so.
Ditto. Interesting how they can be better grandparents than parents.
10 years here. Some people are not cut out to be parents.
Every other day when she was alive. Now whenever i think of her.
I spend 8-10 hours with my mom every day. We work at the same company in the same department.
My mother passed three days after Mother's Day in 1996. Before she died, we talked at least once a week. Now I "talk" to her probably two or three times a week. I miss her dreadfully.
It's been over 8 years, for me. And mine is better, too. There are times when it is difficult, but not as tough as dealing with her.
A few times a week. She's one of my fav peeps in tbe planet.
My condolences to those who have lost your mom and to those with crappyou moms.
I talk to mine 1 to 2 times a week. She lives across the country. She was a great single mom and I'm very grateful.
Almost every day. I love my mama :).
Those of you that have lost your moms, big hugs!
Sorry but I lol at your comment nurysp. I didn't know dogs could or would eat cucumbers and pears. Mine won't touch an edamame dropped from the table by the kids or a grape, apple, celery, carrot, etc…
About every day. I'm blessed with a great mom and dad.
every day, her crazy ass Im an only child oh dear lord ya have no idea how crazy she iseveryday at noone she feeds her dog chilled cucumbers followed by chicken soup
and before bed time one green pear
shes going to kill that damn dog
My mother wasn't a great mom either given the circumstances she had to deal with. I talk to her about once a month and I cannot stand to visit her. That's just a nightmare. Apparently I'm pretty self sufficient until I get home and then "I can't do anything right".
I did send her a mother's day card. Actually put them at the box to be picked up and the lazy ass mail person left them there..Oh wait, someone forgot the stamp. Ooops..
Daily. I am a single mom and my mom drives over to my house at 5:45 each morning to get my son ready for school, so I can go to work. Everyday she does that so he doesn't have to go to before or after school care. Makes me teary just to think about 🙂
Once a week, via Skype. And we see each other a couple of times a year. We fought constantly when we lived together, but a long-distance relationship works great for us.
My mom was a terrible parent but not a terrible grandparent so we text often about my kids, otherwise we probably wouldn't speak very often.
Awwwkward. She died in June of 2008. Think of her daily though.
Everyday. Thankful she's a wonderful mother and lady
Aaaand I just spoke to her, she is traveling in Mexico City and they just had a 6.8 earthquake.
I envy you guys! Mine is a classic narcissist who has no interest in anyone but herself unless she has a way to control or manipulate. I refuse to be that for her now, so we talk maybe once every 3 months. She is coming to my place on Sunday, though, because I somehow turned out to be very nice ; )
Haven't spoken to mine in over 2 years. My life is better because of it
Especially since we occasionally barricade ourselves in her room to hide from the children.
