I love my mother, but it's always somewhat challenging to navigate our relationship. She's the kind of person who gives backhanded compliments, and I first I'm flattered- then I realize what she's really said.
I have a theory that three adults should never live under the same roof.
Now that I am married and have children of my own, my husband and I have a own rhythm and routines around the house. Let's just say that my mom still drums to her own beat and we don't always make the sweetest music.
I think that it must be hard to hand over control.
