OT: How often to you talk to your mother?
If your mother is living (apologies to those who no longer have a mother) and you have a relationship that involves communication, how frequently do you talk to her by phone?

Daily?
Weekly?
Other?
Who calls you or her?

If you live near enough how often do you see her?

Daily?
Weekly?
Other?

We talk practically every day. Mom usually calls first, but if I haven't heard from her and realize it, I'll call her.

I try to see her at least weekly. She loves to see her grandkids as much as possible.

My mom died when I was 20 (cancer).

Okay, I know you didn't ask so disregard if you have no interest, but.... I talk to at least one of my daughters almost every day by email. We talk on the phone a couple times a week.

I talk to my mom every day, even if there's nothing new...lol...I used to see my mom and dad more, when hubby was going to school in the evenings, but, there's been so much going on lately I haven't been going over there as much as I used to...They live only a couple streets away from me though, within walking distance...lol...My family still sees each other a ton though, we're always getting together for birthdays or holidays, or just 'cause.

Once every ten years or so. Our relationship is less than cordial and more than strained.

Mom lives about 15 minutes away....talk to her weekly, we call back and forth. I realize how fortunate I am to still have her and I want her to know how much I love her. She's 77, still working as a caregiver (a job she's great at), active and a superb cook and very accomplished crocheter. She's always been my biggest fan and supporter.....a gorgeous, auburn-haired woman, tall and very ladylike. She's the very best!!!

We talk on the phone once a week at least. Now, during the holidays, we've been talking a LOT more. We usually have our Sunday evening chat though.

My mom is about 3 1/2 hours away, so we only see each other about once a month. Sometimes it's longer between visits and sometimes shorter, but it averages out to about once a month.

She doesn't email much and it's usually just pictures or forwards if they do email. She convinced me to get Skype so she could see the kids more often, but she hasn't installed it on her computer yet! Silly Mom!

Used to be once a week, since she was diagnosed with breast cancer we talk almost every day. She lives about 10hrs away so face to face vists are only a couple times per year.

My mom lives about 45 minutes away. I see her at least once every two weeks, sometimes more. We talk on the phone every couple of days. We're very close and have a great relationship.
