They’re almost three-months-old, gestationally, so it seemed fitting to include them in the six-month-old play date, considering by the time they’re two, they’ll have finally caught up. These are the kids with whom Lucas and Abigail will be in school one day, and these are their moms. It was wonderful being around a group of mothers I could relate to. Women with schedules, lives, and hair appointments who seemed to have struck a balance in the who comes first scenario. Finally, a great group of women: educated, smart, put-together. Normal! I can’t wait to host the play date over here. Hopefully our furniture will make it out of the NY warehouse in time. Conversation at the play date spanned from “Princess class” (a summer class where girls do art projects, and I assume, learn to adjust their tiaras) to the “Pull and Pray” method. “I mean, what are you girls doing now about birth control?” This was not princess class, so details were shared, not in whispers, but in laughs. “You have to be careful. I know way too many IUD babies.” I felt right at home. "And to be sure, he’s getting a V." And surprisingly with all this talk of vasectomies and the anti-pill, Lucas and Abigail refrained from crying, both wide-eyed, watching in amazement as the other babies did pilates.
