I never took it as being bossy. Always open to suggestions. My Mum sounds similar stage regarding decisions. I was just a bit cautious as she was becoming very paranoid about me (nobody else) but seems a bit better now. what you said about decision making each day rings so true - I know some days I just turn round to OH and say you make the decision I made enough today for me and Mum alreadyHi @Bikerbeth, I've just re-read my last message, gosh I sound a right bossy-boots! Excuse - it was late after a veeeeeeeery long day at work with our Christmas special.
Simple things like what shall we have for dinner, I encourage mum to choose between this or that, in my simple mind I think it's exercising her brain (probably wrong), but anything major we have a chat, and occasionally she can decide but more often than not she asks me to decide for her.
I must admit sometimes I find it hard to make decisions (again in my simple mind), I feel I start the day with a brain that can cope with a number of decision making tick boxes (say 100), then choice number 101 comes along and I'm stuffed, brain weary. Guess it's my age showing me up!
Good luck with your Christmas invite.
