18 Things All Close Mothers And Daughters Secretly Do

If you offend my mum, I hate you.

1. Sometimes we reminisce over insignificant stuff that happened a million years ago, and it still makes us cry.

ABC

"Remember when Sarah wouldn't sit by you on the school bus? *sob* What a bitch."

2. And we still hold grudges on each other's behalves.

Warner Bros.

"Remember when Laura's mum gave you a dirty look in the school car park when I was in year 5. I hate her."

3. We love gossiping about people we used to know 20 years ago.

We don't know them anymore, but that doesn't make it any less interesting.

4. But most of all we love gossiping about all our trivial family drama.

5. We have a look that says "this is a boring event, we must leave immediately", that we occasionally throw each other.

ABC

There's nothing better than ditching a bad party to hang out with your mum.

6. And we have another that says "omg what is wrong with our family, we must meet in the kitchen to have a bitch".

E!

How else do you think we get through family events?

7. We analyse even the most irrelevant things in agonising detail.

Warner Bros.

"She cancelled our lunch date for the second time. IS SHE REALLYYYY ILL?"

8. And we're in a permanent WhatsApp conversation that lists every detail of our days.

We know what dinners each other cook, which of our friends we're seeing later, and which days we're planning on going for a swim on.

9. We also WhatsApp through our favourite TV shows.

Warner Bros.

"I don't think Andy's good for her." "Omg no me either".

10. We often wonder whether we'd be friends if we were the same age at the same time.

Obviously we would.

Obviously we would.

11. We always ask each other for advice when we could just use Google.

We text each other everything from cooking questions, to DIY advice, and cleaning tips.

12. And when it all gets a bit much, we know there's only one thing for it: We need to hang out again.

Heading to your mums after a tough week at work is guaranteed to make you feel better.

13. We know exactly how to cheer each other up when we're feeling down.

Sometimes you need to spend a day in a duvet watching Sex And The City.

14. We will literally always be on each other's side, no matter what the argument is.

The CW

We don't even need the details tbh.

15. And we will jump to each other's defense if we ever hear anyone say something even 1% negative.

The CW

"Ugh, mum got mad that I got home drunk." "She does overreact to those kinds of things?" "OMG WHAT DO YOU MEAN? SHE DOES NOT! SHE IS THE BEST!"

16. We tell each other literally every secret we ever hear.

ABC Family

We know each other doesn't count.

17. Which means we have opinions of all each other's friends, including the ones we haven't met yet.

It would be weird if they knew.

18. And when people tell us we are similar, we feel immeasurably proud.

We honestly couldn't imagine a better compliment.
