three sons and split their time between New York City Germany and the wilds of Connecticut Excerpt Reprinted permission All rights reserved Limelight one OUR FIRST MORNING IN NEW York City before anyone else in the family had shown signs of life I was up surveying the situation In bare feet and pajamas mug of coffee in hand I stood in the open doorway of our new apartment wondering if you even use a doormat in a carpeted hallway When I heard a creak down the hall I ducked back inside before a man heading out with a pug under one arm and a newspaper under the other could spot me in my sleepwear The left side of the small living room opposite the north facing windows that overlooked a beige brick building was a wall of boxes I found one that was especially well labeled OPEN FIRST and began unpacking towels stuffed animals lamps school supplies and toilet paper so we would have the essentials right from the start Before going to bed the night before I had unpacked the coffee maker mugs and cereal bowls I had a hammer and nails handy so that I could hang pictures along with a baggie of magnets to clutter up the refrigerator The Jawbone speaker was on the kitchen counter ready to play pop music to get my kids in a chipper mood for their first day as New Yorkers Above all I wanted everyone to feel at home in spite of the upheaval One needs a doormat for example Or so I thought Standing in the living room that morning with the doormat still rolled up I had a suspicion that the universe was scoffing at me and my futile attempts to settle in But I didn t let that dampen my mood I was finally getting the chance to live in Manhattan As soon as I heard voices coming from the kids rooms I went old school and turned on the Beastie Boys Body Movin But before we could get some action from the back section the doorman called up with a noise complaint The new refrigerator was wood paneled and nonmagnetic a barren expanse and the box I d carefully labeled FRAGILE WINEGLASSES made a sound like a package of Legos when I went to open it Our furniture seemed confused and uneasy to be sitting thirteen stories in the air I couldn t shake the worry that it was all too heavy and eventually the floors would give way sending couches beds boxes and the upright piano through the ceilings until finally all of our possessions landed in the lob Our cat Jasper was hiding in a closet behind our GE Spacemaker stacked washerdryer my children were cranky and nervous about starting school the next week and my husband was stressed about his new job I took a deep breath and continued unpacking We had been living in New York for less than two weeks when we had our first full blown crisis I didn t know how to handle it and almost called my mother for advice but I stopped myself she was still mad at me for moving away I called Sara instead my one and only friend in the city As someone who had lived in New York for years she was in my mind an expert Is this bad I asked her Honestly I wasn t listening I closed the door to my bedroom and spoke clearly The principal says Jack offered a girl in his class a dollar to see her vagina Ooooh I know That seems like a low offer to me Not for a third grader He obviously hasn t adjusted to Manhattan prices Did he have a dollar I don t know I said Maybe Why It speaks to intent Maybe he was asking hypothetically But I m asking is this really bad It s only his first week at this school so can they kick him out And does this point to something seriously wrong with him Like is my son a sexual deviant He s four He s eight Whatever she said No that s why the school is so mad He s old enough to know better Do you think he hates women To the contrary Sara said So did she What Unveil the vag No And she s very upset Jack has to write an apology You re blowing this way out of proportion It s not me The teacher asked him to write a letter And she used the word troubling Like the act was a predictor of something worse to come Like when young kids torture animals it s considered troubling Asking for pussy and lighting a cat on fire are not the same thing Sara said bluntly He was probably testing limits Or thinking entrepreneurially like How can I turn a single dollar to my advantage in this shit economy That s not troubling That s enterprising What I found most troubling infuriating actually was that the girl s mother didn t call me directly Or tell me to my face I had seen her each day at pickup since school started surrounded her many friends and we d been added to the school directory already She could have talked to me so we could smooth things over privately But instead she went over my head and ratted Jack out A written apology Why should he apologize Sara asked No money changed hands so technically it s not even solicitation It ll blow over A week from now you ll be laughing about this Did you start work yet Tomorrow I said What if he grows up to be a regular customer at a strip club Where all the dancers know him name Allison You re busy I know Sorry No but my boss just came in and I can t wait to tell her about this No Don t I begged but I could hear her saying Hey so my friend s male chauvinist piglet tried to pay for a peek of snatch as she hung up That s the problem with Sara other than being inappropriate and never available She has no clue about discretion Or about children But she lives here which makes her the only local friend I have I need her I went back to the living room past dozens of half unpacked boxes wondering how many people Brittney s mother had already told Had she destroyed our reputation before we d ever had a chance to build one Jack would have to throw himself at everyone s mercy and hope for forgiveness I wanted to shield him from further embarrassment given what he would face at school the next day As a teacher I knew the staff would convene around the school secretary s desk and have a laugh at Jack s expense And the only people who gossip more than teachers are elementary school children If this sort of misstep had happened back in Dallas I would have met the moms for margaritas and they would have made me feel better Oh Allison we love Jack bless his heart I would have called up the girl s mother to talk Bygones she would have reassured me We were known there No moms knew me here I considered calling Lilly who was supposed to be my local mom friend In college she had repeatedly made the case that New York City was the best no the only place on earth to live and had always urged me to move there And then she d promptly abandoned the place the moment I decided to take her advice I put my phone back down I was still perhaps unreasonably smarting from our last phone call in the summer It took only twenty years I had joked but I m finally moving to New York I waited for her exclamations of joy but heard nothing Lilly Bad connection Just bad timing sweetie We re moving to Montclair Like we re literally moving as we speak I ve got boxes all over the place What Lilly leaving New York Impossible Very funny It was time she said flatly and yelled instructions to the moving men who were in her apartment Why Time for what I asked Lilly had been selling me on New York since the day we d met She was the one who had taught me that if I knew the inner workings of Manhattan I could see a Broadway play for only ten dollars She was the one who proved to me that the subway was indeed the fastest way to get around the city and that runway models such as the dozens she worked with at her mother s agency had acne in real life But you always said you could never imagine living anywhere else That you loved the smell of concrete That you were allergic to every other place on the I ll still see you all the time she said I can hop on the train from New Jersey whenever I like You me and Sara we ll grab drinks anytime But I ve had it with the noise the schools just the whole I don t know scene Montclair is amazing You ve got to come visit Her desertion at the moment I was arriving felt like a personal betrayal and I didn t feel like calling her to commiserate over Jack s school incident She would probably just tell me to move to Montclair I checked the time Charlotte would be heading home from cross country practice at Van Cortlandt Park within the hour and Michael would be getting out of the meeting he was holding with the entire staff at his firm Meanwhile Jack was in his room with the door closed and my homesick fourteen year old was in hers For some reason our new living room didn t seem to function as a family room so the kids often retreated to their corners and it was quieter than I was used to I admit I was homesick too Since Jack and Megan were doing homework I settled in to do mine I continued the hunt for the many people we would need in our lives a dentist a veterinarian a piano teacher and a pediatrician A math tutor a hairdresser a dry cleaner and a handyman Dallas had been such a mellow comfortable place to live The streets are broad the winters are mild the air conditioning has oomph and parking is plentiful But truth be told I had grown a bit restless there Moving to Texas had been easy I was welcomed Literally Instantly On our first day in the Dallas house a decade ago as I unpacked my doormat and took it outside to the front steps my neighbor Natalie walked up with her tanned blond preteen daughter and a heaping plate of homemade snickerdoodles The recipe calling for two pounds of butter was taped to the Saran Wrap In case you want to give it a try Natalie said We liked each other right off the bat She became one of my walking friends meeting me in our driveway twice a week at six thirty in the morning with her gooey eyed cocker spaniel Over the years that our families lived side side Natalie s daughter Carrie a fan of football fast cars and country music grew up to be a partier so Natalie confiscated booze whenever she or the cleaning lady found any half empty bottles under her canopy bed You in need of some cheap rum Natalie would ask me I found a handle in the backseat of Carrie s car Carrie got a coveted spot on the cheerleading squad once she got to high school and wore her short flouncy skirt to school every Friday Megan s eyes would lock on those bouncy pom poms and never blink pupils turning into little cartoon hearts Charlotte on the other hand grew up to become decidedly antiparty and anticheerleader What does it say about our society she ranted one night at my mom s house for dinner when males get accolades for knocking each other down for sport and giving each other concussions with subsequent long term brain damage while the women dress up as sex symbols and chant inane rhymes in order to support some brutish caveman rituals Disgusting I like her Megan said Popularity shouldn t be based on sex appeal Charlotte said She s popular because she s always sweet and nice to everyone Unlike some people I know I d say that you re both one hundred percent right my mother interjected playing her role of keeper of the sibling peace When I told Natalie that the firm had made Michael an offer for a major promotion as long as he agreed to move to the East Coast office she got teary and said Oh how awful She caught herself and suddenly hugged me saying What I mean is awful for me But hey New York City How exciting Yes it is I said I think it would be great I mean I would never want to live in New York not ever in a million years but how thrilling for you She looked away for a moment imagining perhaps feminist demonstrations and political marches and said Come to think of it I can picture Charlotte fitting right in there My mother reacted to my news in a way that was far easier to interpret Have a nice life she said when I told her Neither one of us took that comment seriously but I was starting to wonder how long she planned to punish me You ve got so many close friends here so many people who love you and Michael and the kids I don t see why you would want to throw that away she had said I wasn t willing to admit to anyone that so far I wasn t feeling the love in New York I was starting to get the feeling that no one cared how I was doing New Yorkers have a way of looking at you as if to say Let s just see how long you last I was up for that challenge Fine I ll show you I thought Michael had initially been on the fence about moving to New York even after I was all in As soon as I d landed a teaching job I couldn t be dissuaded anyone I got a perfect long term sub position I would be replacing an English teacher who d abruptly decided to get married and was taking a one year leave of absence to move to Boston with her husband to be It was the perfect combination of serendipity and connections a teacher friend of a friend had recommended me and I took the job right away knowing it might very well lead to a long term position The more I thought about it the more I was convinced that an adventure and change would be good for all of us while Michael continued to worry about uprooting the kids We went out for dinner one night to make our decision one way or the other We d be crazy to turn this opportunity down I said Three kids and no backyard Who needs a backyard when we have Central Park and our kids will never drink and drive I read that sixteen thousand pedestrians get hit a car every month in New York That s more than five hundred a day Michael What You ve been offered your dream job It s an honor it s what you ve worked for your whole life But if it s bad for the kids It ll be great for the kids When I was visiting New York in college I remember looking at all the faces on the subway and thinking This is real life Dallas isn t real life It s real to me Michael said looking around the restaurant He waved at someone across the room I turned to see who it was and waved to the couple as well I d taught both of their children But New York would be so much realer I have such a good feeling about it like this is exactly what we need What do we need that we don t already have I d miss the guys Where am I going to play golf Lawyers in New York play golf somewhere What about Dorothy Do you really expect your mom to move again because of us We ve all got a good thing going here Why not stay put he asked I couldn t put my finger on it but I think it had to do with my urge to stir the pot to keep things interesting to stop aging Adventure I said picking up my glass and swirling the wine in the bottom Stimulation It ll keep us young and edgy It s so sexy to live in a big city Michael perked up Go on he said At our age we re on the very brink of becoming frumpy and dull Do you want that Or do you want a new lease on life What did you mean sexy It s a turn on don t you think I picture a big night out a party with interesting smart quirky people High heels and a low cut hot wrap dress I touched my toe to his calf Men were so easy That sounds fun he said It would be a jolt in a good way Invigorating Your cheeks are pink Michael said I felt it too my reaction to the prospect of change But I don t know Michael said shaking off my fantasy Yanking Charlotte out of school before her senior year Every single college on Charlotte s list is on the East Coast so if we move to New York we ll be so much closer She could come home for Thanksgiving or maybe even a weekend or two Yeah that s true but Our kids I said with a confidence I was beginning to feel will become more interesting independent open minded people But here we were a week and a half in and so far life in Manhattan was making one kid a pervert one a depressive and the other an asshole Megan was lost and couldn t get the hang of things academically She wore her misery all over her body like an ugly outfit Her skin had broken out and her shoulders slumped inward until I thought they might touch in the middle Even her hair was limp Where s that chipper face I d ask She would shrug How should I know Charlotte meanwhile was sulky and rude which wasn t entirely surprising given that she was seventeen but she hadn t so much as smiled once in the time we d been here She had been cautiously optimistic about the move when we first discussed it last spring but bam did she ever go sour on the idea after she started dating her very first boyfriend The timing was a bitch She and Theo got together at the end of the school year and spent the summer falling in love The goode scene with her robotics club beau was tearful and tragic for both of them and the only way we got her on the plane to LaGuardia was promising a family trip back to Dallas over the winter break You ll see each other in four short months I said handing her a tissue across the aisle She gave me a mean look and blew her nose By the time we landed she added a new feature to express her anger and resentment she went mute She now huffed around and wouldn t speak to us even when we asked a direct question Who wants dim sum Hellooo Nothing My mother was never one to be swayed teenaged drama but I knew perfectly well what she would say I told you so I checked the time and realized I needed to give some thought to dinner I looked up from my computer and into the kitchen Our apartment wasn t what I d hoped In Dallas I d had a granite island two sinks a six burner stainless steel Viking and a Sub Zero A wine refrigerator and a butler s pantry Why in God s name would you abandon this glorious kitchen my mother had asked Trading this house for a New York apartment she pointed at me will in every conceivable way be like going from an Escalade to a Vespa Vespas happen to be extremely cool I said so now I know we re doing the right thing It was the kind of logical fallacy a student would make in a losing argument Well don t expect me to follow you this time I m not downgrading from my beautiful boxed garden to some Chia Pet on a windowsill I figured that once Michael and I found a wonderful place to live she d change her mind Unfortunately the real estate broker assigned to us the relocation company said that we should forget those tree lined streets in the Village and we couldn t get into any of the uptown co ops that were known as A or even A buildings We were too disconnected he said and our financials weren t in line with what those co op boards required What do you mean Michael had asked The kind of apartment you have in mind the broker had explained and then looked down at the notes he d taken from the hour he d spent on the phone with me shaking his head four bedrooms plus a study slash playroom slash guestroom living room dining room we re talking at least double the budget you set Maybe more Michael whistled That much he asked It s New York the broker said as if that explained everything I nodded agreeing with him completely What Michael asked me This is absurd We re moving to the capital of the world I said Of course that comes at a price It s not all about hearth and home you know It s a little about hearth and home Michael argued We ll get a perfectly nice place I said We just have to be flexible Now that I think about it the broker said B buildings aren t really going to work for you either Let s forget all this co op and brownstone talk Let s take a look at some nice high rise condo buildings No application process closer to your price range Quick and easy In fact he said looking up at us suddenly have you considered renting So we looked at Upper East Side and Upper West Side condos all lacking in charm and personality We finally found an apartment north and west of Columbus Circle on the thirteenth floor of a twenty story building It wasn t one of those classic New York prewar architectural wonders like I d seen in so many movies And it wasn t like the brownstone Lilly had lived in when I d gone home with her during college It was built in Boring boring Marriott like It had no views to speak of but if I leaned out the living room window and craned my neck to the right I could catch a tiny sliver of Central Park It had a slightly depressing vibe our lob felt like a doctor s office And Jack s bedroom was eight feet ten feet It held a twin bed a tiny desk and that was it his clothes were in a closet in the hallway Worst of all the girls had to share a room Charlotte heard that news and her attitude about the move swung from heartbroken about leaving her new boyfriend to disgusted her terrible parents From slightly apprehensive to utterly horrified We can t share a room she d said Sure you can Michael said I nodded It ll be like a slumber party every night of the week Charlotte actually stomped her foot If New York is so absurdly expensive she d asked then why are we even moving Because it s New York I said We re going to love it And no one I mean no one moves for their senior year in high school I m sure someone has Michael said somewhere He looked at me Name one Charlotte said My college counselor says this is the dumbest thing ever That s not what she said I reminded her She said it s unusual but that you can spin it to your advantage with the right attitude You can write your essay about how swimmingly you handled change Why can t you guys just wait and move next year I told you Dad s promotion Well I want to stay here she said and live with Gram I raised an eyebrow You mean with Theo No way Michael said All I m saying Charlotte said is that we should leave the option on the table in case I don t get into a decent high school Call me naive but I wasn t too worried about schools Jack was easy he got a spot at the neighborhood public school It was a short walk from our apartment and known to be excellent according to every online forum I consulted The situation for the girls was totally different The deadlines for the public middle and high schools had passed so we had to go private or face having them placed randomly in whatever schools happened to have room for them So we started the off season private school application process and they promptly got rejected seven schools Only one place took them a brand new shiny for profit school called Orbis Academy not far from Gramercy Park a school that had branches actual franchises in other cities in the world Well isn t that just fucking fabulous Charlotte had remarked when the email acceptance came Megan and I will be attending the McDonald s of private school education Don t say fucking I said And it s only for a year Thank God Orbis was bright and beautiful and the science facilities even Charlotte had to admit were state of the art but getting there from the new apartment involved a lengthy subway commute Charlotte did a search on Google Maps and announced that she hated me This is seriously going to suck she said Please can I just stay here with Gram and graduate with my class It was out of the question of course and that time the momentum was unstoppable I d accepted my new job put the house on the market and paid the tuition at Orbis I saw something moving in the corner of the living room and spotted fat old matted Jasper who had finally ventured out from behind the washing machine after a week of hiding and was now slinking around behind the couch I went to pat him and he jumped out of a half empty box of and rubbed up against my leg I was relieved this first show of affection since we d moved and stroked the top of his head Hey there Jasper you like it here I asked rubbing his ears He hissed at me and clawed my hand Oww you little shit I hissed back Apartment living with our thin walls and floors was teaching me to mind my volume so I kept my cursing level permanently set to low I ran my hand under the kitchen faucet wrapped a paper towel around the scratch and then texted Charlotte to get her ETA The message didn t deliver which I hoped meant that she was on the subway I decided to treat myself to a glass of wine to toast what had been a rather difficult day my offspring had risked expulsion my hand was bleeding and I had a growing sense of doom that was killing my New York buzz Above all I wanted to raise a glass to my final evening of summer vacation the last night before I would be back in the classroom teaching full time again plunged into the day to day work that would consume me for the entire academic year Since my wineglasses had shattered into tiny crumbs of stemware in the move I filled up a coffee mug with red wine and started cooking dinner I opened the little kitchen cabinet that held the small amount of food I d bought and took out a box of pasta and a jar of sauce From a box in the hallway I found the large spaghetti pot and a pan for garlic and ground beef I took out the red pepper flakes the salt and the olive oil In these few small acts I had used up every square inch of the counter space in the kitchen I realized that with an arm outstretched I could touch the counters on all sides without taking a step Cooking suddenly seemed too hard The oak cabinets felt weighty and out of date I couldn t remember where I d packed the colander and hated the idea of cleaning up the mess I was about to make Maybe we ve made a mistake I said to Jasper Doing domestic chores wasn t the way I wanted to spend my last evening before my school year started so I went back to my laptop and ordered Chinese While I waited for the takeout to arrive I called my former neighbor Natalie and left a message And then I remembered tonight was club They were all going to whose house was it this month Sue s to drink Chardonnay and talk about novels their husbands and exes their jobs their kids or whatever TV show everyone was hooked on I sent a group text message to the girls Miss you lovely ladies I added a frowny face deleted it and added a smiley face instead The front door opened and I heard Michael calling my name before he d even come inside Hey I said How was Guess what happened He was flushed and breathless briefcase in hand suit jacket over his arm He looked at me expectantly actually waiting for me to guess Umm I threw my hands up randomly You got us theater tickets to Hamilton No but I like your thinking Guess again You re the employee of the month I just got interviewed he paused Humans of New York Where are the kids I want to tell them everything They re doing homework but Charlotte s not back yet I have news too Here I said and got another mug from the kitchen Have some wine You ll need it Why I ll tell you after you ve finished it I hope it s not that bad he said because I ve had such a fantastic day I felt a twinge of jealously thinking of him working side side with the beautiful lawyer who d followed him from Dallas to Manhattan I d confronted him already and we regularly went round and round about her Oh great So you and Cassandra had a fun time together Michael smiled at me and shook his head What I said I narrowed my eyes at him I know what I know Is that like It is what it is Don t mock me He kissed the top of my head For the one hundredth time I m not sleeping with Cassandra I m not attracted to Cassandra Who the hell has a name like Cassandra anyway I asked She s just calling attention to herself with a name like that And why do you always pronounce it like that Cass ahn dra Why not Cassandra like a normal person You say tomato And you know perfectly well I have proof of something It s flimsy It s not even about anything Any judge worth his salt would throw you out of court My proof Michael brought her along from the Dallas office as part of his team and then she d posted on Fac Check out my hot NYC pad and tagged Michael in the picture of her new bedroom It was disgusting And besides Michael said I ve got counterevidence now she apparently got a serious boyfriend who s into mixed martial arts I even saw a picture he looks like John Cena I turned this new piece of information over in my mind Did John Cena move here with her I asked Not yet but Ah ha I said See See what When are you going to come check out my new office And let s go out for dinner this weekend Have you noticed how many terrific restaurants there are in our neighborhood I ve been marking the heck out of Yelp Food is expensive here I said I bought a gallon of milk today for seven dollars We can afford dinner Maybe But you can t afford me and a mistress that s all I m saying He clapped his hands together I m a bona fide Human of New York Can you believe it I wonder if I ll make it into a I decided not to tell him about Jack quite yet Why ruin his mood I m going to change into jeans Want to take a walk later he asked and went back to our room I heard Charlotte s key in the door and sighed with relief She didn t say anything or even look at me as she came in but I thought for a second incorrectly as it turned out that she d smiled as she dropped her bags and kicked off her shoes Everyone s home I called out to Megan and Jack Jack came into the living room looking sulky and tired followed Megan who looked unhappy and frustrated She was holding a paperback of Romeo and Juliet For once it would be nice to see my children not completely miserable at the same time Ah Here we are I said forcing myself to keep up my good spirits in the face of gloom The band s back together What s for dinner Jack asked Chinese I told him It s on the way Did you get dumplings No Great How was school I asked Charlotte She pulled off her baseball cap her hair was in a messy braid down her back Awful Awful how I should have left well enough alone She didn t answer I started to ask if she d heard from Theo but I thought I d better not bring him up lest she burst into tears Were your classes okay I asked instead No How was running She rolled her eyes and took off her socks Was it fun Honey What d you do I ran Duh Do you like the coach She turned her back on me and pulled out the elastic holding the bottom of her braid Hungry She sighed like she couldn t believe anyone could be so irritating I am Megan said When s dinner She had showered and changed into pajama bottoms and a T shirt She was standing with the weight on her heels her toenails wet with pink polish I ordered about twenty minutes ago I hate the subway Charlotte said on her way to her room I m covered in Ebola It fucking sucks here Three sentences This was progress I made a quick calculation with my fingers That was a haiku Charlotte I called after her Like an ode to Manhattan Leave me alone she yelled And nobody bug me while I m facetiming Theo and she slammed the bedroom door She seems pretty good I said to Jack and Megan We heard music turn on She s turning into a serious bitch Megan said I don t even like her anymore Don t call your sister a bitch Well it s true And you don t like her either Megan said Your dad s home I said in order to change the subject and he says he just got interviewed the Humans of New York guy Wait what For real Megan said and ran on her heels to find him in our room Jack kicked the side of the couch Five seven five I said What A haiku Do you have homework I asked My teacher hates me She looks like she s mad at me all the time Like she scowls at you Jack made a face to show me I m sure she likes you just fine How to broach the subject I lowered my voice So about what happened today I wrote the letter already Oh Shouldn t we talk about it first I don t feel good Can I stay home tomorrow Nope was all I said I had a very high bar for my kids when it came to missing school like fever or uncontrolled bleeding Is your homework done I have to do a reading response in my journal Can I see the apology you wrote No Really I think I should take a look It s private So s her hooha I thought and that didn t stop you I feel like I should help make sure the tone is right The only help I need is getting some food in my face He walked to his room and slammed the door It was a wonder any of our doors were still on their hinges I went to pick up Charlotte s backpack off the floor and saw her physics test sticking out of the top I stopped short of pulling it out all the way to find out how she did it felt like something that would get me into trouble but peering in I could see scrawled on the top Thirteen Thirteen How does a straight A student even get a thirteen on a test I heard the buzzer dropped the backpack on top of a box marked KITCHEN random and opened the door to meet the Chinese food delivery guy Jesus Is she going to have to rethink her college list How could she go from As all the way to Fs From ninety eights to thirteens And why thirteen I m not superstitious but that seemed like a bad omen
