Parent Hacks book update: the quiet part

I took this picture almost two months ago:

Editing the #ParentHacks book

Since then, my editor, illustrator, designer, and I have had our heads together doing more edits, making more adjustments, and obsessing over details others would probably never notice.

Those details keep me up at night because I want this book to be something you’re proud of. When you see it, I want you to jab your finger at the cover and grab the person next to you and say, “See that? I helped make that!”

Today I’m due to get the last round of printed pages before the book goes to the printer. It’s also my son’s 16th birthday. I think there’s something poetic in that. Two things I love are hitting these big milestones together.

This guy's 16.
