A mom wakes her daughter up every morning by licking her "like a puppy" because she couldn't give her a furry friend that her daughter so desperately wanted.

Marcie and Alena are best friends and have even appeared on a reality TV show called sMothered which features overbearing mothers and their children. Well, it was on this platform when people learned a VERY strange morning habit Alena's mom got into.

"She kept pestering me for a puppy and I wasn't able to get her a puppy, so I changed into a doggy," Marcia explained to the camera.

But even weirder, Alena enjoys it.

"I love it when my mom licks me. It kind of makes me feel closer to her when we do something fun and out of the ordinary," Alena said. Whatever floats your boat, Alena!

The habit began when Alena was just a little baby when Marcia would lick Alena and have her chase her around the house to build her strength up because she was born with an enzyme deficiency - meaning she had very little stamina as a child.

"It was really a good thing to help her grow and it just continued," Marcia explained.

The morning habit is completed by Alena tracking down her mom after chasing her around the house.

It just gets a little bit odder when, after Alena has been licked like a pup by her own mom, she returns the favor later on after capturing her.

"When I catch my Mamma I do all my kissy-poos and I kiss her all up. She's very kissable," Alena said.

The pair do acknowledge that outsiders may find it a little creepy, but they think it's cute and lovable.

"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," Marcia explained. "It's getting a little tricky as she's getting older, but we still do all the same antics and we still play the same games and we have fun."

On the Mommy Needs Vodka Facebook post, people took to the comments to display how weird they found this ritual:

"This kind of thing is none of my business, and I wish it would have stayed that way," one wrote. While another wrote: "Those two are on a show called Smothered, as well as other mother and daughters... sometimes you just want to throw up seeing the things they do together... Seriously."

Is it cute or not? Let us know what you think.
