Today's episode of TLC's sMothered – which records the lives of six mother-daughter duos who have an unusually close relationship – focuses on 68-year-old Marcia Galan and her 21-year-old daughter and & # 39; best friend & # 39 ; Alena, they do everything together.
Marcia, who lives in New York State, gives an idea of how close their relationship is and admits that the duo has an unusual morning routine.
"My relationship with her is unique," she explains. "In the morning I go to her room and just lick them all up.
"She kept bothering me about a puppy and I couldn't get her a puppy, so I turned into a puppy dog. Alena tastes pretty good and everything is sweet, I just want to eat it whole. & # 39;

For Alena, who was born in Siberia, Russia, and then adopted by Marcia as a toddler, it turns out that her mother's puppy antics make her feel closer to her.
"I love it when my mother licks me. It makes me feel closer to us because we are doing something funny and extraordinary," she says. "It's a thing we do every day."
But the unusual morning routine doesn't stop there. As soon as she is finally out of bed, Alena playfully chases her mother around the house.
"When Alena was very young, she didn't have much stamina, so I would say," You can't get me, you can't get me. "
Alena suffers from an enzyme deficiency and the hunt began to increase her stamina and promote growth when she was a child. But the routine has remained and the two continue to chase each other on a regular basis.

"It was really a good thing to help her grow, and it just kept going," says Marcia.
Once Alena finally catches her mother, it's her turn to play puppy.
"When I catch my mother, I do all my kiss poos and I kiss them all," she enthuses. "She is very kissable!"
Marcia admits that her relationship with her daughter may seem strange to some people.
"Some people disagree or wonder what's going on with her," she adds.
But Marcia is determined to maintain a close relationship with her daughter.
"I love the idea of growing up doing all these stupid things," she explains.

"It gets a little difficult as she gets older, but we still do the same antics and we still play the same games and we have fun."
Another new mother and daughter who have a particularly unusual start to the day are 55-year-old Mary and 19-year-old Brittani, who shower together every morning.
Stripped naked, the two share the walk-in shower, and Mary even helps wash her daughter, lather her up, and prepare her for the day.
"The best way to start the day is with the shower," says Mary. "I love her and see nothing wrong with it. I have been helping Brittani take a shower since she was five. I'm just a fond mother! & # 39;
For Brittani, it's the perfect way to spend time with her mother.
"When my mother does simple things like washing my hair or washing my body, I feel comforted," she adds.
The brand new series from sMothered will be broadcast exclusively on TLC this evening at 9 p.m.
