Is there anything more annoying than your favourite cafe (favourite incidentally because it is actually the only decent one in the area) being overrun by families and their toddlers, and mothers and their babies in groups, meeting to talk about sleep patterns, eating (what, how often, what consistency), curdled milk, birth, joint bank accounts, mortgages, while parking their monster-buggies in the spaces you need to walk round the tables?

The only thing I can think of is having two women, after one of them has strapped her baby into his/her car-seat, standing outside a big old SUV' with the door opened wide and blocking the only open parking space in the lot,  talking and pretending they do not see you waiting to pull your car into the space.  Why do some women think motherhood gives them the right to be self-centered and obnoxious?

That's irritating as well! There is something about those who have recently procreated in the middle class that makes some of them unbearably pleased with themselves.

Yes, there *is* somthing worse... reading their blogs!

But I totally agree with both of you. I think most women lose their brains for about 20 years after giving birth, and then again another 10 after that when  the next generation come along.

And the worst thing?  We're busy working to pay them all the handouts they claim for having done so!
