Marcia and Alena are featured on TLC's season 2 of 'sMothered'.
Most of us tend to share a warm and close bond with our parents. However, this mother-daughter's unusual relationship certainly pushes the boundaries of a normal parent-child relationship. E! Online reports that a 68-year-old mother licks her 21-year-old daughter to wake her up in the morning in an episode of TLC's sMothered. While the doting mum tends to every need of her daughter, getting a dog wasn't one of them, as the daughter once wished for. Therefore, the mother opted to give her daughter literal puppy kisses. This puppy licking routine is not a one-off, if any one was wondering; it happens every day!
According to the Daily Mail, Marcia revealed their morning routine, "My relationship with her is unique. In the mornings I walk into her room and I just lick her all up.
'She kept pestering me for a puppy and I couldn't get her a puppy, so I turned into the doggy. Alena tastes pretty good and all sweet, I just want to eat her all up."

Alena, who was adopted by Marcia when she was a toddler, added, "I love it when my Mamma licks me, it kind of makes me feel closer to her because we're doing something funny and out of the ordinary. It's a thing we do every single day." Aside from that bit of oddity right there, the two of them are truly playful and tight as they mentioned. They have another ritual where Alena chases her mom around the house. Marcia says that this started when Alena was found to have an enzyme deficiency when she was very young. She said, "When Alena was very little she didn't have much stamina, so I would say, 'You can't get me, you can't get me.' It was really a good thing to help her grow and it just continued." This chasing around was meant as way to grow and gain stamina, and has continued since well into adulthood.

When Alena catches her mother, the roles reverse and she becomes the pup. She added, "When I catch my Mamma I do all my kissy-poos and I kiss her all up. She's very kissable." The close pair are well aware that outsiders may find their connection to be bizarre, but that is not going to stop them from doing what they love. Marica explains, "Some people don't agree or they wonder what is wrong with her. I love the idea as she's growing up of being able to do all those silly things. It's getting a little tricky as she's getting older, but still do all the same antics and we still play the same games and we have fun."
