Have you been accused of being overly motherly?

I get this all the time. I think it is because I am the oldest. Some people say it me seem like a witch but I honestly don't realize I do it.

  • I'm always accused of being over protective. In this day and age, I don't think there is such a thing! Not sure what you mean by "over motherly" I am the second oldest of 7 and I treat other children as my own and tend to mother kids that are not my own if that's what you mean.

  • Definitely. Both to my kids and my DH and my SIL and my MIL and anyone else I come in contact with. lol I was an oldest child and I had a lot of responsibilities at an early age.
