“I mean, traveling with her was kind of frustrating and people would say, ‘Why aren’t you married?'” ‘ And she added, ‘I mean, ‘painful’ is the right word, ‘one of the things that people also assume is, like, why didn’t you have kids? Barbara had already decided–before my grandmother died, she had a conversation with Grandma who had decided to have children on her own, and I talked to my grandmother about it, and my grandmother said, “I think that’s a really good idea.” So Barbara froze her eggs and was planning, if she didn’t meet someone, to go ahead and do it, and then hopefully meet someone else. I know this was her plan and our 92-year-old grandmother encouraged her. “
The mother of three continued, “It is interesting how our lives followed this very similar narrative with young children and then… I just started a family earlier. It would be really fun to watch her become a mother making contact with the baby, baby feeding a bottle and everything Those, like, wonder what we should do on Halloween—like, all these things our novels have been back together, and I can’t wait to watch her become a mom.”
