Tallulah shares pic of mom Demi Moore 'picking splinters' from her bum, reveals why they didn't talk for 3 years

In a candid Mother's Day tribute post, Tallulah Willis talked about how she reconnected with her mother, Demi Moore after being estranged from her for three years in the past.
Bruce Willis' youngest daughter opened up about the ups and downs of the relationship she shared with her mother as she shared a series of pictures with the 'Striptease' actress, including one where the 57-year-old was seen 'picking splinters' out of Tallulah's butt.
"But also a more accurate representation is D picking splinters out of my buns with a magnifying glass" she hilariously captioned the photo.
In another post, where the 26-year-old was seen posing with her mother, Tallulah reflected on a period of her life when she thought that it was next to impossible to have a relationship with Moore.
"Channeling love and strength to every mother to be, tired mamas, step moms, and mamas who’ve lost something precious. I’m sending it to anyone who struggles to celebrate a day when it reminds them of a loss," she wrote. "I didn’t talk to my mom for almost 3 years and during that shattered time this day would transport me from fragmented pieces to absolute dust. I remember tearing up driving to work upon hearing a radio ad that cheerily recommend which ‘perfume Mom would absolutely adore’. I digested the entire celebratory nature of the day as an insensitive slight to MY pain and MY story," she said.
However, just like most relationships, Tallulah's relationship with her mother evolved with time and she got a chance to mend the bond and even began imagining how her rapport with the younger version of Moore would have been like.
"Through a metamorphosis of inward self reflection and a malleability to forgive, 3 years did not stretch to forever. The gratitude of that truth has never lost its potency. I am magnetically transfixed by my mother, if you know me personally you know the magnitude of her presence in my life. I often wonder what kind of connection could be formed were I to meet the 26 year old Demi. I think we’d have a lot of laughter. The kind where you are silent and doubled over and gasping for a sliver of air," she said.
She concluded her poignant post by letting her mother know that she was grateful for the fact that she brought her into this world. "The here and now is a day that started with a running hug to my maternal deity and a sloppy cheek kiss. I revel in all that you are and all that you continue to teach me. I witness what this day means for you, and where you came from. Every nook and cranny of you is worthy and gilded. I love you," Tallulah wrote.
Tallulah and her sisters Rumer and Scout appeared Jada Pinkett Smith's Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, last year with Moore, where Tallulah opened up about the reason behind the estrangement from her mother. She said that her family struggled to cope with Moore's past addiction battle, which was fueled by alcohol and painkillers.
"It was like a monster came," Tallulah, 26, said. "I remember there's just the anxiety that would come up in my body when I could sense that her eyes were shutting a little bit more, the way she was speaking. Or she would be a lot more affectionate with me if she wasn't sober."
In her memoir 'Inside Out,' released last year, Moore said that in her 20s she used to be a heavy drinker which led to her mid-1980s rehab stint, followed by nearly 20 years of sobriety.
