Cure it with Movies/Books: Mom Drives You Crazy

Moms (and families in general) are the most important people of your life...they will love you unconditionally and always will stand at your side, but let's face it! Sometimes moms are the ones who drive you crazy!!

My mom favourite phrases are: "Why are you dressing like that? It's so old style!", "Why you're not going out tonight?"(when I'm studying for an exam), "You came home too late last night, that's not good!"(when I'm on holiday) and my favourite of all: "Sweetie, I love you and you're beautiful anyway but...please! Put on some mascara!"

If you can relate with those lines, here's my list of movies&books to help you laught about it...
