Word to your mother

If your not-quite-yet-born self could give one or two pieces of advice to your soon-to-be mom about how not to screw up you and your relationship with her, what would it be?
I read on here a lot about how difficult moms are to deal with. Overly critical, histrionic, self-absorbed, drunk, etc., etc. I would really be sad if my 4.5-year-old daughter grew up having to write to AskMe about how to be in my presence without harming herself. So, how can I avoid this (beyond just trying hard to be decent and consistent and empathetic). Could any of you say something like "If only mom had/had not done x, our relationship would have been so much better." Thanks!
