I was recounting a story about some drama/gossip going on in one of the local mom groups I used to be involved with. The drama wasn’t actually the story. The drama was back-story which made the story I was telling even funnier/more ironic.
I was finishing the dramatic back-story when my friend Claire, who is single and child-free, looked at me and said “It never ends does it? The cliques. The drama. The gossip. It doesn’t even end once you have kids?”
No Claire, it doesn’t.
Actually, a lot of times, it gets worse.
