On the way home from the zoo I had the momentary impulse to call my mom.
You see, I didn't have many friends in middle and high school, and this worried my mom quite a bit.
So, as I've made my group of mom friends, I have found myself calling on the way to (or from) play dates.
Mostly because I knew how much my mom would like hearing that I have friends now. And to prove, something...
I left a message on my grandmother's phone instead--but it just didn't feel the same.
