Whether it’s Xo and Jane from Jane the Virgin or Lorelai and Rory from Gilmore Girls, it seems like there are enviable mother-daughter relationships everywhere we look! Yeah, the actresses on the screen may seem like besties, but chances are, your mom is a pretty amazing friend to you already. Here are five things that make your mom the best best friend:
SHE MAKES YOU FEEL SPECIAL
The words, “You’re my mom, so you have to say that,” have come out of all of our mouths at one point or another. But the truth is, she meant it, whatever it was. To your mom, you’re the most beautiful, intelligent, capable woman in the world. You’re the apple of her eye. You don’t find a vina everyday that feels that way about you.
SHE’S ALWAYS DOWN TO HANG
Roomies pestering you? S.O. troubles? Feel like staying in? Mom’s your go-to gal. No one is as dependable or as comforting as your mom. Whether you’re having a Fixer Upper marathon or getting manis, she’ll be right there with ya. (Facetimes and phone calls definitely count for those vinas with far away mamas.)
SHE IS ALWAYS ON YOUR SIDE
Everyone knows that if they cross you, they have to cross your mom, too. It doesn’t matter if you got an unfair grade on a term paper or if your S.O. broke your heart, she’ll be Team You through and through.
SHE GIVES THE BEST ADVICE
To picture your mom at your age going through what you’re going through is at best, odd and at worst, downright scary. But the truth of the matter is she was your age, and she does know what you’re feeling. Moms have some pretty sage advice that vinas your age don’t. Hey, the saying “mother knows best” had to come from somewhere!
SHE HAS SEEN YOU AT YOUR WORST AND STILL LOVES YOU
She loved you through the terrible twos and puberty. She loved you when you had braces and that botched haircut. She loved you when you missed curfew and got that piercing without her permission. She loved you after you got dumped and didn’t shower for four days. She loved you then, just like she’ll love you always.
