I have a great relationship with my mom, we're not BFF (anyone can be your bff, only one person can be your mom) but we're close. I parent a lot like my mom did, she is matter of fact, and we always treated her with respect (just like I expect of my kids). I am different though in my parenting, I make much more of a point to tell my kids how we feel about them (growing up it was just assumed you knew that you were loved), we never did anything fun because I wanted to, and we had to work all the time, but on the other hand this prepared me well for being the mom of a big family. (the work aspect that is).
