Veep #6: “I’m pretty sure all the leaves taste the same”

July 1, 2010

She reminds me of Kate Hudson!

From Sarah about the shoot: Allie and I strolled through Prospect Park on a gloriously sunny day, and she told me all about adjusting to life as a mom in Brooklyn.  She said she was eternally grateful to her mom’s group.  Such a cool resource for city moms.

First Name: Allie
Age of Child:
Thomas just turned 1!
Neighborhood you live in:
Park Slope
Favorite places in Brooklyn to hang out with your child:
A trip to the Tot Lot in Prospect Park, toasties at Tea Lounge and a run through the sprinklers at the Park Slope Playground is our idea of a perfect day!
Any hobbies / passions of yours?
Reading, sewing, drawing, raising a happy and kind human.
Anything you’d like to say to your kid here?
Thomas, I’m pretty sure all the leaves taste the same.  You don’t have to keep sampling them all.  But if you want to, that’s ok too.  I get it.  And ‘la la la’ (which means ‘i love you’ in Thomas-speak).
