Just realized I'm the same age as the niece & I'm living on my own in a separate state from my mother (thankfully) standing on my own 2 feet raising 2 children & have been out of home since 14& renting & parenting on my own since I was 15
I wish I had someone to do those things for me.(like my BIL & his gf) This whole not having a helicopter parent to parent me as an adult child sucks lol.

I best go read the OP because "my sister is treating her daughter like a child" sounds funny.

Oh right, the daughter is 23. Now it makes sense!

,Mums never stop being mums, no matter what age their kids are.
My mum still does stuff for me. Sometimes im too scared to call people ive never called before (appointments and so on) so she calls for me. Sometimes im too scared to go places alone and she comes with me.
I m 30 in a couple of weeks.
My mum is only a holiday atm for 3 weeks and i feel like my limbs have been chopped off. If dh wasnt home on school holidays id be 100 times worse than i already am atm..
I am mature. I just have extra needs and my mum steps in to help me because she loves me.
Whats the big deal?

I'm 32 and live a few hours away from my mum, but we talk most days. If she lived nearby we'd hang out a lot. I'm married with 1 child, have lived overseas and all that (none of which makes me mature, I know plenty of immature parents/travelers/etc) but it's still nice when mum does things for me. She enjoys helping so I don't see an issue - its win-win! When she visits she cooks things for our freezer, helps around the house etc. DHs mum sometimes does DHs washing & ironing because she really wants to help out and washing is her thing.
I just don't get why people think there's an age cutoff where you're not supposed to 'need' your mum anymore.
Also, I help mum with things that she's not so great at too so it works both ways.
OP - be happy for them that they have a great relationship. While some of it might sound over the top to you it's really about what works for them.
Oh and I love animated movies!!!
