Button Problem

I am sure this is so simple. I just need a direction here. Tried a few different way and couldn’t quite achieve the way the buttons work at

You will notice if you roll over a bunch of menus at once every single one of them will react to it. Meaning they will start their animation and finish.

When I make my buttons I include an MC in the Over State that has the same type of animation. But of course when I roll out of the Button it immediately returns back to it’s “UP” state without waiting for the “OVER” mc to finish.

What should I do?

Please help!!
Thank you
