Of course growing up you have your group of best friends, the girls who do anything with you, and who you spend every weekend with.
But, in my opinion, a girl needs more than just her girl friends, she needs her mother.
Having my mom as one of my best friends is one of the greatest things that's ever happened in my life. I cherish the relationship we have immensely, and I hope every girl sees just how much fun it can be to have your mom be not just your mom, but your best friend too.
1. She can temporarily judge you, but not permanently
No matter how bad you screw up, or how wrong of a decision you’ve made, your mom will forgive you. Yes, she might have to inflict some motherly advice upon you, and show you her disapproval, but if she’s your best friend she will just be happy and grateful that you come to her with things, and after sharing difficult wrongs with her you will feel nothing but her unconditional love.
2. She really is always right
Moms always claim that they’re always right whether it has to deal with boys, your friends, your grades, etc. it’s her way or the highway. And even though I probably haven’t admitted this to my own mom, from my prior experiences her predictions and feelings toward things usually tend to end up true. Give her some credit every now and then, she likes to receive credit when necessary, and she only has your best interest at heart.
3. A person to share clothes with
Every girl loves sharing clothes and mixing up outfits, and as I grew up without any siblings, I always heard of my friends stealing their older sister’s clothes or them having their clothes stolen from their younger siblings. Not me. I steal my mom’s clothes. So, for all you only children out there, I highly recommend raiding through your moms closet every once in a while, you never know what sort of trend you might find!!
4. A forever friend
Your mom is one of the only people that are with you from beginning to end in your life. She sees it all, and she knows every side of you, even the ones you try to hide from yourself and others. From your first day of life to her last, she will be by your side, and this is one relationship that you will truly always have for forever. Who wouldn't want a best friend for life???
5. There are so many things to look forward to together
In the world of a young girl, there are so many life-changing experiences like going off to college, marriage, getting your first job, and having kids and I couldn’t imagine going through without my mom by my side. If your mom is your best friend, then that only makes these special moments in your life so much sweeter. I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to plan my future wedding with my mom, as well as sharing all of my future success with her!
