This was sent to me by my friend Kenz, and it is delightfully sweet and fucked up, kinda like Kenz herself. It’s about how parents deal with living in a one bedroom apartment…with children.
Paola, a mom who works in the financial industry, says living in a one-bedroom in the Meatpacking District with her boyfriend and four-year-old son was, in a word, hard. “We put a divider between our beds, but my son was still there,” she says. “So we’d spend a lot of time in the living room and the kitchen, which had this nice marble counter. But it was so friggin’ cold! It wasn’t sexy like in the movies.”
Read it! If you live in a small apartment with no children, or have children and a large enough place to not have to worry about this, give yourself a pat on the back!
