>Three years after his wife died following childbirth, Matt Logelin chronicles life with little Maddy.
HOW WAS WRITING A MEMOIR?
I wrote the first part—the heaviest part—in about seven days. I hadn’t slept well since Liz died [of a pulmonary embolism], and when I got those words out and knew I didn’t have to hold on to them, I was finally able to sleep again.
She got Liz’s looks, thankfully, and she’s so hilarious. I was sick, and I said, “Maddy, I’ve got a headache.” She said, “But Daddy, I kissed your forehead! You’re okay.” How sweet is that?
ARE YOU DATING?
Yes. [My girlfriend] and Maddy bake cupcakes and get manicures and pedicures. It’s not always easy, but it’s great.
