Haha sounds like my mom. It’s been a long 14 months, but I’ve learned how to stand up to her and she’s backed down. It’s been good for us actually!

My advice is to nip her bahavious in the bud now! Have a talk with her over breakfast one day about your expectations and her level of involvement. 

A friend of mine went through something like this and they picked a super silly word, like “monkey pants” or something and any time the mum started going over board she’d use the phrase and they’d laugh it off.  This strategy might not work with everyone, but for mum’s espeically, it’s easy to get carried away, so you need a way to consistantly ground her.
