This photograph was taken in 2002. You’ve heard it from parents before: “I stepped away for a minute…”
What I love about this picture is exactly how fleeting it is. Zoë is my clean, organized child. Usually. But on this day, she thought she’d try out these soft, creamy crayolas on her face rather than her coloring book.
I’ve never been able to capture such a picture of Zoë since.
