About us...

We are Barb and Laurie, and we are daughters...that explains it all. We love our mothers but, as is common in many mother-daughter relationships, they can drive us crazy! After one especially difficult day, we were looking for some help online in dealing with our mother-daughter relationships but couldn't find an existing website dedicated to this topic. We were at a loss. And then....we had a light bulb moment! Why not create our own site about the mother and adult daughter relationship? So we set out to do just that. 

We personally really needed a place to vent frustrations, learn new strategies, and be reminded to have a sense of humor about the whole situation. In building this site, we have learned more than we could even have imagined about our relationships, and it really has made a difference for both of us (despite our varying circumstances). And now we hope that this site is helpful to you as well.


We'd love to hear from you, so please drop us a line and give us your feedback and suggestions.

The real life Laurie and Barb

Laurie and Barb with Paula Poundstone (center)

We recently had the chance to meet Paula Poundstone after one of her shows. We couldn't resist posting this photo. She was so nice and personable and shorter than she looks on stage (we thought for sure she'd be as tall as Laurie, not almost as short as Barb who is wearing heels!). Paula is currently on tour. If you have a chance to see her, it's a fun show!
