I’m Living

Today in the car my daughter and I were discussing an assignment she needs to do, a series of photos based around poem or book, with a theme of “family”. I told her, “Oh, you could do that famous children’s book.” “I don’t know which book you mean,” she replied. I couldn’t respond because I had burst into tears. Okay… so THAT was stable.
