The Challenge of Dealing With My Mother 's Behavior

Since I was a child, I have received considerable affection from my parents. I am not an ungrateful daughter, but actually it makes me feel nervous. Sometimes, it was embarrassing me because my mother, Izabel, did not know the correct time to treat me like her baby, and I dislike when she talks about our intimacy out loud, talking with a different tone of voice, and with a peculiar semblance of proud mother in her face.
