I have nothing to offer but a hug. My mom is gone now but we were like two peas in a pod. We laughed at same jokes enjoyed the same things. I think that's why your story makes me so sad because I couldn't imagine not having been close to her. I am close with my daughter too but I don't pressure her. Thank you for reminder that kids aren't mini-me's but individuals.My mom was a lot like yours in that she talked constantly. Now my mom loved documentaries, science, the arts, etc. So it was a bit easier to put up with the talking because she was so well educated and knowledgeable.
Just hang in there and take a lot of naps, walks, etc
