Motherhood is an exclusive club

WHY can't women be more supportive instead of taking sides over the methods of motherhood?

Please, spare me the motherhood clubs.

"Motherhood's a club," another parent told me before my daughter was born.

She wore the wolfish smile of a woman eager to bond through misfortune, like a cell mate or crash survivor.

I instinctively shrank away. I felt very Groucho Marx about this club.

As it turns out, motherhood is many clubs.
