There are many things in life you need. You need food, you need water, and you need your mom. Those are just the facts. Your mom doesn't have to be the conventional notion of the idea; she could be another relative, a best friend's mom, or someone who just fits the bill. Your mom is someone who is always there for you, and she will do whatever it takes to make you happy. A mom is also someone who you run to when something goes wrong or when you feel like your world is crumbling and you need some solid advice. Whether it's something silly or something serious, there are many times you need your mom, regardless of what age you are.
There's really no denying that there's a special relationship someone has with their mom. I've said this often, but my mom is my rock and I don't know who I'd be (or God knows where I'd be) without her guiding me and raising me the way she has. I probably go to my mom more often than a lot of people. Need to know what kind of pad to get at the grocery store? Call my mom. Not sure how to cook pasta? Call my mom. Need to know if my butt looks weird in these pants? A quick FaceTime to mi mamá. She's fabulous (and definitely slightly annoyed with me constantly), but I wouldn't have it any other way. I definitely hit her up when any of the below things happen (and also when I don't know how to properly make coffee, because I'm hopeless).
