I know to many people, especially men who live on their own let their mum do their laundry or still eat at their parents house etc.
And I know many whose mothers actually go their homes, clean, prepare several days worth of meals, and do their laundry. I shake my head when I see that. I don't who's crazier: the kids, or their mothers! My mother even tried that with me, and even walked-out of my home on a few occasions when I wouldn't let her. She actually got mad at me! She has since resigned herself to the fact that when she comes to visit me she's there as my guest (but still Mom!) and is not permitted to do anything other than relax, eat, and whatever. That said, she still gets mad at me when I'm unable to make it to a dinner invite.
