From left to right: Lucy Kramer, Abby Margolin, Izzy Margolin, and Lola Kramer. Lucy and Lola are best friends with my girls, and are only about 2 months younger. Here they are enjoying a thoroughly nutritious lunch (peanut butter sammies, cheetos, and raisins) outside at the Kansas City Nature Center. We’d just finished seeing all the animals—bunnies, birds, owls, fish, turtles, mice, squirrels, and much much more. They all loved it. Well, except when a large python tried to eat Lola (but thankfully was prevented from doing so by the aquarium she was contained in).
I am Lucy & Lola’s godmother. Since I’m a Jew, I had to ask a lot of questions when Shelly (Lucy & Lola’s mom, and my dear friend) asked me to play this role. I’m still learning, but I feel very honored and hope that our families will always be close.
