I once got into an argument with my mother because she smugly parallel parked and asked, "Can you do that yet?"
Confused, I responded, "Yes. Why?"
"Well, you couldn't used to. Remember when you took your driver's test?"
"When I was 17? You're aware I'm now well into my thirties, correct?"
Check out this great piece from The Motherlode:
"But even when we’re the ones wrestling with our own parents’ dated vision, we current parents don’t think often enough about whether we’re already boxing our children in."
