Hello, I am a new mom again, I have a 15yr old step-daughter, a 13yr old son and a 6 week old! While they are very helpful at times, at other times I feel as if my 15yr old step-daughter is trying too hard to play mother hen to the baby. I am very defensive this time around as far as keeping my mother, mother-in-law, and now even my step-daughter at arm's length when it comes to doing anything for the baby. Are these feelings normal?? I am afraid that they will over run my baby and I have a strange feeling like they are trying to be his mother!!! Please help with any ideas on how to establish some boundries, especially with the step-daughter, she lives with us and I don't want there to be any tension in the house, I want her to enjoy her little brother, but at the same time I AM the mother!!!
