Why do grown women still feel like they need to be the center of attention?

I'm talking about my mother in law here.

Here are some examples:

I can never have an A/B conversation with her because she never let's me get a word in. Whenever she does I'm interrupted mid-sentece or she assumes what I'm going to say and cuts me off, and 99% of the time she is wrong, and I'm just left there misunderstood and without getting my point across. That's one thing.

Another example is Christmas dinner. I had just given birth (3 weeks early), and my mother in law was recovering from her radiation treatment, and since we had planned Christmas at my house and were not in condition to make X-mas dinner, my mom offered. My mom goes all out and this was no exception, she made everything and everyone said it delicious, except my mother in law. She said the way she makes the turkey is better and not dry, and she could not stand everyone praising my mom on her cooking.

I was the one who had given birth only days ago yet she was the one telling us about all her 5 labors and deliveries, when people were asking me! I would start a story and then she would say something like "I did not cry that much in fact with my first son...."

She lets everyone know that since she has facebook 200 men have asked to be friends with her...

This are just some examples I mean I could go on but this are the ones that have stood out the most.

Why does she keep doing this? Why does she still need all the attention drawn to her? Why is she so full of herself?

You'd think she'll be mature by now, right?
