I had a date with a woman for the first time. Get your head out of the lady pond, please. My date was of the play date variety with Evan in tow.
I met this mom on Facebook via a mom group. Marie and I decided to bring our strollers and babies and get to know each other better at the park. I dressed to impress cause…Mami. Mami always taught me to dress my best when meeting someone knew. “Para que despues no hablen!” she bellowed. Loose translation: look good so people don’t spread rumors that you look like shit.
Speaking of feces, the park was littered with duck caca. Still, I was happy to saunter around the poop in cute, tribal-patterned pants, a vintage, navy-blue top, a silver-jeweled statement necklace, and a fuchsia, Betsey Johnson crossbody bag.
I looked good, right? Not bad momma! say I. Well, you can have a date with a woman and look awesome as well.

As for my date, I ain’t one to judge (okay, maybe a little) but Marie looked like a mess. She donned sweat pants, a crazy bun and a large hoody over a t-shirt. Yes, we were at the park – but this was our first meet. Impress me, mom date! I thought. Perhaps Marie doesn’t have a mami like mine. Her mami may not pressure her to put on lipstick or comb her hair differently because she doesn’t like it. Wait, maybe that’s not a bad thing.
