A Perfect Mommy

Finally, I met a Mommy here in town I want to hang out with. She’s Peruvian, not young (I’m finding it very onerous to hang out with 22-year-old mommies because it’s like being at work), with a 21-month-old daughter Klara really likes. It’s funny how easily toddlers make friends. After 5 minutes, it was like they’d known each other forever.

This woman used to be a dancer in New York but had to move here for her husband’s job. Which he almost immediately lost. So we have a ton in common. Again, it’s not easy with people who have only ever lived anywhere but here. They look at me like I’m trained monkey with a traveling circus. 

Meeting somebody like this was one of my summer goals, and now I feel very accomplished.
