10 *Relatable* Points For Every Girl Whose Mom Is Her BFF
Daniella Masrour

If you're reading this, you probably have the same relationship with your mom as I do. Don't get me wrong, it is fantabulous having a BFF that is also your mom. But, it's often difficult to remember when she's your mom and when she's your BFF. Here are little things every girl who is as close to their mom as I am can most definitely relate to.

1. You sometimes forget that she's your mom, and you talk to her as if she were, in fact, just your best friend

Giphy

If you're as close to your mom as I am, you often talk to her about things you probably shouldn't, in ways you probably shouldn't. And because of that, you've probably gotten the "I'm not your friend, I'm your mom" talk more than a couple of times. Ooooops.

2. You'd rather hang out with your mom than your friends

Giphy

You probably find yourself cancelling plans with friends, or just not making them in the first place, because you know you would rather hang out with your ~real~ BFF. Catching a movie and getting dinner with your mom = ultimate Saturday night.

3. You literally do everything together

Giphy

Whether it's hitting the gym, eating meals, shopping, or watching a shower, your mom is always there with you.

4. The rest of your family might feel left out from you and your mom's *special* bond

Giphy

Let's face it, with a BFF comes countless memories together, too many inside jokes to name, and soooo many laughs. It happens, every-so-often, that the other members of the fam just weren't there when the funny thing happened, or simply do not understand the joke. What can we do though....

5. You know EXACTLY what each other is thinking - at all times

Giphy

There's never a moment when I don't know what my mom is thinking, because odds are, I'm thinking it too. Our brains just work in the same way and we just get each other, you know?

6. You gossip. A lot.

Giphy

I know, I know, spilling tea isn't really something to be proud of. But what can I say, if you put my mom and I in a room together, we're bound to talk. About other people. Not to mention, we have the same likes and dislikes when it comes to people - so we're always on the same page.

7. You can tell what the other is thinking with just one look

Giphy

Like all BFFs, my mom and I can tell what the other is thinking with nothing but a glance. If something happens that's mildly out-of-the-ordinary when you're together, you both are the firsts to notice. You look at each other right away, and immediately just know what's up.

8. You always finish each other's sentences

Giphy

When you do everything together, you really experience life by each other's side. So, you live through the same stories that you tell others. This makes it so easy to butt-in when the other is talking, or, in other words, finish each other's sentences.

9. You share clothes, even if you're not the same size

Giphy

My mom and I don't typically buy the same size clothes, but we never fail to manage finding a way to share. Whether it's a T-shirt that fits a little oversized, a denim jacket, or a hand-me-down, I've got a lot of my mom's clothes hidden in my closet.

10. You're basically inseparable

Giphy

My mom and I come as a unit. If she's invited over somewhere for dinner and I'm not, or vice versa, we both get major separation anxiety. Lucky for us, though, living together makes it pretty easy to hang out allll day long.

Love you mommy!!!

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.
