My mom never embarrasses me in front of my hubpages peers. We have been through a lot and with her living in BC I take every opportunity I get to spend time with her and enjoy her company. Even if this means spending time with her online only. It doesn't matter to me what she says or does on hubs because what people think about our relationship or her doesn't bother me, she's still my mom and my friend and I still love her.
Now, if she was here and we weren't so close I beleive she would drive me nuts. Having a huge distance between you and your parents really does something to change your views on several aspects on your life. I find things that use to drive me nuts doesn't anymore and the way I treat people has also changed.
