My mom and get along pretty well but that is easy to do when you live a million miles away. I love her so much and talk to her every day. My dad on the other hand lives a million miles away and other then to discuss the football games I try and avoid him.
I get along with them great. they're also 2000 miles away, we talk on the phone. my dad is a "down to business" type, altho he gets a little goofy with my daughter, but he's not all mushy with me or my sisters.
My mom and I get along great now. We had a rough patch in the past when I was first starting my family. I can't blame her given it couldn't have been easy cutting the parental strings and letting go of her only daughter. We have an adult relationship now but it took some tough words said on both sides and understanding of where each other stood, and learning each others boundaries.
