My mom still treats me like I'm 18. I will call just to talk and have a normal convo...but of course my mom has to find something to be mad at me about and then decides she can't talk to me anymore. This time it was about my cats. My family and I are going to visit my parents for a week and she knows I'm trying to get rid of one cat b/c it is a problem cat. So she is obsessing over this and gets mad at me. Like some things in my life have nothing to do with her...so I shouldn't even share anything with her anymore.
I try to have an open relationship about everything. oh well.

In answer to your question, I am the youngest of four, and at 47 my Mom still introduces me as "her baby". I am better with this now than I was in my 20's but really!! Anyhow, my Mom, whom I love very much, is extremely opinionated and judgemental and I can only take her in small doses. So I call her every few days and let her talk about whatever, and agree with whatever she says cause I learned long ago that the aggravation wasn't worth it. I know I disagree with her a lot, but it serves no purpose to upset her and myself at the same time, so I have decided to simply keep my opinion to myself and let her ramble. It works better this way.
