With Mother’s Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reflect on the special bond between mothers and their daughters. Are you and your mom the best of friends? Did you follow in her footsteps? Do you have her laugh or her eyes?
Not all mother-daughter relationships are the same. Here are our favorite mother-daughter duos — which one best fits you and your mom?
Ultimate BFFs: The Gilmore Girls
You’re the best of friends and tell each other everything, so nothing is off-limits. Your mom has always been there for you, and she’ll probably be the matron of honor at your wedding, if she’ll ever come to grips with the fact that you’re all grown up. And even though she may hover a little too close at times, you’ve never once doubted that she’ll always be there for you, no matter what. (Especially when it’s coffee o’clock.)
Quirky and Competitive: The Golden Girls
Just like Dorothy and Sophia, you’re a little competitive and Mom can dole out some tough love, but only because she wants the best for you. You both have a quick wit and can understand each other’s sarcasm — which may or may not be appropriate all the time, but at least you make each other laugh. Eyes may roll, but through it all, you’re each other’s biggest fan!
The Power Team: Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
She led and you followed. You’re both successful and hard-working, and you’ve never been afraid to go after your dreams. People say that not only do you look like, but that you also act like your mom and share so many of her stellar qualities. When it comes to success, class and heart, you ladies set the standard.
Motherly Love: Claire, Haley and Alex Dunphy of Modern Family
You will always be her baby, simple as that. Even though you’re headed for greatness in your own way — whether it be as a fashion guru or a research scientist — your mom will always think of you as her little bundle of joy. You’re embarrassed by her mom jokes and constant prying, which can make things rocky sometimes, but at the end of the day, you know she means well. Her advice is usually invaluable, even though she tends to take the scenic route when dispensing it.
No matter which category you belong in, we know there are plenty of things that make your relationship with your mom so uniquely yours. On Mother’s Day, cherish some time with your favorite lady, whether she’s a Lorelei, a Claire or a Goldie.
