My EE is like the mother of all mothers to all my other girls, she's the oldest, but she is only 6 or 7 weeks old and I swear she sits on my two youngest chicks on a regular basis!

I had a daughter like that.
When I got divorced ( I got custody )...my eldest daughter decided ( on her own )...(She was 10 years old.)
that SHE was "The Mother" of the household. ( unless I "over-ruled" her ).
I guess it is something "instinctual".
I dunno. :confused:
Anyway...it was O.K. ( and a HELP to me....mostly.)
-ReTIRED- :)
P.S. Fortunately....She got-along well with her older brother who was 12 years old....and VERY independent.
The 2 younger daughters listened to her...mostly.
I think that they still listen to her...though NOT as much. The Youngest one is NOW 38 years old.
SHE was also a VERY GOOD Mother to her own children...who are NOW 1 past College (graduated) and 1 entering College. A GOOD MOM.

It sounds like she telling them that she is the boss, and sitting on them to reinforce her power.

She's not mean to them at all, no pecking or anything she just herds them around and watches over the, like they are her babies lol
