i have a mum who is only 17yrs older then me and before i had my son she used to go out clubbing with me and drink and all that kind of things like we were best friends not mum and daughter and people used to think we were sisters so it was a compliment to her

Well I say heck yes! Moms know their daughters best. I love hanging out with my mom, and my mother in law for that matter. I wanted to have kids early to make sure my daughter has grandmas...I grew up without them and I really want my kids to have that relationship!

I am very close to my Mother and cherish the friendship we share as adults. I look forward to having the same relationship with my daughter. Of course a mother-daughter relationship is different and there is always a line there where you are not exactly peers and should not be. It is what makes it special.

absolutely! thats why i had kids young i saw my cousin have kids young and she knew just what we were going through all the time as teens and could still have fun with us because she wasnt that far from our age. i went to a concert with my cousin on the weekend and it was just as fantastic as if id gone with one of my friends my age. she still drank just as much as them and we still hit the pubs after. I found i couldnt connect with my mother alot. she had me when she was 30 but every parent is different

Yes , I believe that is why God made momma's and daughter's to be best friends and love one another, your mom can give you and direct you in life cause she has been down that path and can be there for you when life comes at you good times and bad, I lost my best friend (mom) 12 yrs ago and I have daughters now that I pray I wish i could hang out with. so I say if you can GO FOR IT!!!!
YES! My momma is my best friend. I mean yes, kids need private time without mom there, but they really should set aside some for "Mom & Me" time no matter how old they are. Time passes quick and Momma gets old before you know it, spend some quality time with her while you have the chance cause one day when you really want to, it may be too late.

I hang out with my mom ALL the time. We live so close and we spend a lot of time together especially when hubby is working (he works 12 hour shifts). Today he was helping a friend work on his car, so mom and I took my boys to a movie. We also do a lot of family dinners. We all like to go out for Mexican food on Sundays. That is usually more than just me and mom though, that is my uncle and cousin and my brother in law, sometimes a few friends, etc. But anyway, I don't see why a mom can't hang out with her daughter. My mom totally understands that when hubby is home sometimes it is just us. But we don't in any way try to disclude her from anything that we are doing especially if it has to do with the boys. And if the daughter has kids it might be a helpful hand to have around. Especially since for a woman it's better to have her mom around than her mother in law. And since my hubby works long shifts sometimes I need rescued from the little ones!! I know when I moved away for college I couldn't wait to move back home (even though I was only 2 hours away from home at the time), but I am a momma's girl so to speak. So, I really did miss our time together.
