Have you talked to her about why she treats you this way? Maybe she just doesn’t realize she is babying you.

Maybe she doesn’t know another way to talk/connect with you?  I agree with PP, talk to her.  That all sounds frustrating!

Could the root of the problem be that you have grown, changed and become more independant in the time you spent living apart, and she just hasn’t realized it? Was she peculiar about the way you cooked or loaded the dishwasher when you lived at home previously, or is this relatively new. 

I think the root of your problem may be that you both got used to living alone and doing things your own way, and now you’re cohabitating again. If you’ve already sit her down and tlaked to her about this, perhaps you can go away for a few days (maybe to your FIs house) and give each other a few days alone, then come back and reevaluate.

Do you have a friend that you could crash with for a couple nights /  one night a week? Maybe some seperation time will help. I think you could also bring it up to your mom. I had a similar issue with my dad always teasing me and giving me a hard time about stuff. I finally broke down one day and just told him that I really didn’t appreciate it because I didn’t feel like he supported me. He immediately apologized and has scaled back a lot since then. He still gives me a hard time every now and then, but not when he can see I’m stressed out. So you could maybe try something similar with your mom? Good luck!!!
