I don’t know if I have ever told you all this, but when this book was in the works, I felt very strongly that it needed to actually look like my life. I didn’t want any shiny family photos on the cover. Didn’t want any pretend about it. So, we looked through our old photos and found this one of Chloe. Fit the bill! Captured a little bit of reality. But not all of it. All of it was too much to look at. Because all of it was this:There are a lot of photos in this sequence. In some of them you can see the enormous pile of laundry in the chair in the background. Some of them are action shots of Chloe rubbing the noodles onto her eye. I don’t know why I was taking pictures instead of intervening. I imagine it felt therapeutic. Still does, actually!
