The dark secret that no one talks about is that working moms grow up to be working grandmas.
The daughters that you were never around to help grow into mothers who are still struggling to make it through without you. Your grandchildren treat you like a stranger, because they only see you on holidays even though you don’t live that far away. Your job is still bitching at you about taking too much time off work.
So you buy yourself a new car, because that’s all you have left in your life.
And you wonder why your children and grandchildren don’t want to follow in your footsteps.
